The Great Pond Yacht Club was founded in 2011 with a mission to spread the love of sailing on Great Pond in the Belgrade Lakes Region of Maine. We cater to sailors of all levels and encourage everyone to join us, absolutely no experience is necessary!
As a club, we focus on fostering light-hearted competition in a fun and welcoming environment for sailors of all abilities. We offer sail training for children and adults. We host a series of races throughout the season, complete with a club championship. And we offer lots of opportunities to gather together to swap stories over a cocktail or two.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, we’d love to have you! All you need to do is follow the directions on the membership application page, and we’ll get you registered. If you’re not sure, or you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us or stop by our next event to say hi! We’ll see you on the lake.
