Membership Information


The Dillon Yacht Club is a group of sailing and power boating enthusiasts who have joined together to promote the sport and safety of boating, sailing, cruising, power boating and sailboat racing, along with fellowship among boaters on beautiful Lake Dillon. We depend on members volunteering their time to help organize and carry out club activities and we expect each member to actively participate. We actively seek new members with an interest in sailing and boating to join our club and accept members regardless of age, sex, race, color, or religion.

“To reach a port we must sail, sometimes with the wind, and sometimes against it. But we must not drift or lie at anchor.”
- Oliver Wendell Holmes

Why join the DYC?

Do you like the feeling of being free, getting close to nature and forgetting about life on land? Boating lets you immerse yourself in the elements with only your dreams on the horizon. There is just something different here…on Lake Dillon.

Imagine yourself on a crystal clear lake, high up in the Rockies, with a crisp breeze on your face and the gentle motion of the boat slicing through the water. It’s said that being on the water is more than a sport – it’s a lifestyle. An adrenalin rush leaving you high for days.

Playing on or by the water’s edge at Lake Dillon rejuvenates the spirit, restores the soul and rebuilds families and friendships. Come explore Lake Dillon, the beaches and secret spots that can only accessed by water!
