Nockamixon Sail Club is the Home of Sailors and Sailing at the beautiful 1450-acre lake within the Nockamixon State Park in Bucks County, PA. The Park has a Marina with docks for boats up to 24 ft and a dry storage area for boats on trailers. The Nockamixon Sail Club was established in 1974, shortly after the Lake was filled, to organize activities for sailing at the Lake. The Club serves both Racing and Cruising sailors with a full calendar of events from April to November each year. Racing includes one-design and Portsmouth handicap competitions.  Our fleets include: the Catalina 22, Chesapeake Bay Cruisers, Com-Pac, Flying Scot, Hunter, Impulse 21, Mariner, O'DayPrecision, Thistle and Victoria.

Commodore's Message

Everyone, it's our favorite weekend of the season, the Club annual Up the Lake, Down and Back race and picnic on Saturday. Please come out at 8:30 to help set up the tents and picnic tables. Don't forget to bring your potluck dish. There will be 2 races, a longer racing fleet course up past Swan Cove (depending on winds) and a shorter cruising fleet course generally up past the Fishing Pier. Skipper's meeting is at 10:00 under the tents. Remember, even though we call this a race, it's a fun event. If you have a boat, you should be sailing the "race!" Following the race, we'll have the annual picnic, which I believe is a pig roast. There will also be vegetarian options. 

The weather forecast is for a warm and sunny day, with a high of 87º. Wind forecasts are notoriously changable, but for now it looks like it's gonna be a drifter. Bring auxiliary propulsion
