Come Sail with Us!
The Annual Long Distance Race is planned for July 8th.
Everyone is welcome….expert sailors and novice sailors, all will have a good time. The general plan is to sail to Shady Creek marina and back. The start will be staggered as usual so that faster boats start last. Gather up your crew and join us for this traditionally fun event!
Hope to see you at the lake July 8th!
Welcome letter from WVSC Commodore:
We hope your tour of our website will encourage you to come out to El Dorado Lake and visit. Walnut Valley Sailing Club offers a friendly and relaxing sailing club atmosphere along with the best and deepest water conditions in the region.
WVSC traces its roots back to 1937, when it was called the Wichita Sailing Club and located at Santa Fe Lake. Many of our long time members recall Santa Fe sailing, before the move to El Dorado in 1985.
Our on-the-water Activity Center has all the necessary amenities for great sailing and social experiences. A full kitchen is available to members from Spring through Fall. The slip facilities can accommodate both board and big keel boats.
We are a vibrant, fun club with varied sailing activities, socials and competition scheduled throughout the sailing season. The racing program is active, well-organized, and always looking for more racers. New racers are welcome, racing is an excellent way to learn about sailing. Other themed sailing activities are meant to encourage joyful, relaxed sailing for the entire family.
WVSC learn-to-sail program for youth and adults is, hands down, the best sail training in the region. Our goal is to train the sailors of tomorrow to keep our sailing community strong.
So come on over and check us out, where:
ALL THE FUN IS ON THE WATER!
