Sailing & Fleets

Always fair winds and following seas

The Susquehanna Yacht Club is home to Lightning Fleet 253, which races on Lake Clarke every Wednesday evening and during special weekend regattas between mid-May and the end of October. The 19 ft. Lightning is a recognized international one-design racer with more than 100 fleets worldwide. Our fleet has been a “charter” member of the International Lightning Class Association since 1954 with significant participation in the ‘60’s with 31 Lightnings in the Drysail Area in front of the SYC Clubhouse.

The Flying Scot is a 19-foot sloop sailed by racers and casual sailors alike and is a great family boat. The Flying Scot has many advantages, one being opportunity to join the Flying Scot Sailing Association (FSSA), one of the strongest one-design class associations in the world. Here at the Susquehanna Yacht Club we are home to Fleet 81. 


Bring your sailboat of any type, and enjoy the ease of access to your mooring in our harbor, with racks for your dinghy, or use ours! SYC loves sailors of all skill levels.
