Welcome to the Stowe Yacht Club
We are a diverse group of model yacht sailors based in Stowe, Vermont with skill levels ranging from beginning modelers to experienced blue water sailors. Whether you are a sailor, or just interested in this fascinating and beautiful hobby, all are welcome.
Our club sails three sanctioned yacht classes. We’ve chosen the as our club boat. Some members also sail the and the J boat , the larger sanctioned class.
We sail every Monday and Wednesday evening from 4:30 pm until about 6:30 pm. Our season runs from soon after ice-out (about the beginning of May) until first ice (usually the beginning of November!) After sailing we often socialize at the Commodores Inn Lighthouse Bar & Grill.
In the winter we meet occasionally to plan regattas, building and maintenance of boats, or discuss yachting issues.
Feel free to join us on one of regular sailing days. If you don’t have a model yacht, the club has loaners or someone will hand you their transmitter for a trial sail around the pond.
