Welcome to the
Diamond Lake Yacht Club!
The Diamond Lake Yacht Club is situated on beautiful Diamond Lake, a 1000+ acre lake in Cass County in southwestern lower Michigan. Originally founded to standardize racing rules and handicaps for the many types of boats sailing on the lake at the time. the DLYC has been home to sailors and families from around the lake as well as from the local area. Over time, social activities were added as well as swimming and sailing lessons for the kids on the lake. We now have a beautiful club house, a full social calendar, and still lots of sailing and lessons, all run by volunteers.
The club is dedicated to sailing, youth development, lake preservation, and water safety. Our youth sailing and swimming programs are open to all, members and nonmembers, on a fee basis. In 2020, we were forced to cancel our social calendar due to the COVID pandemic, although we were able to conduct the youth classes outdoors, socially distanced, and masked. This year, we are looking forward to getting back together safely and have a full calendar of activities planned.
