Our activies include:



In addition to our active social activities, we offer the following amenities:

Boat Slips and Ramps

We have five separate docks in our protect cove that collectively feature 90 boat slips for keelboats. Shore power, water and dumping stations are all available. We have two launch ramps, a rail lift for hull repairs, a shed for tools, plus electricity and water at all work locations.


Our private beach offers safe swimming and wading in shallow water protected by our cove. In addition, our beach serves as a great place to launch Lasers and other racked sailboats used for racing and instruction.


Our clubhouse features a kitchen, community room, large deck overlooking the lake and recently rennovated bathrooms with full shower facilities.

Dry Boat Storage

We have dry storage facilities for trailered and rack stored boats.

Central Lake Location

Our club is centrally located on Smith Mountain Lake with direct access to the main channel for the best wind! Our location allows sailors to easily explore both the northern and southern portions of the lake with a safe harbor awaiting on the return trip!


Our camp sites are located near our clubhouse so people can enjoy camping with the convenience of kitchen, bath and shelter facilities nearby. We offer long term camping sites for pop-ups or tent camping.
