Rush Creek Yacht Club offers a heated and air conditioned full service clubhouse with restaurant, bar, locker rooms, swimming pool, playground and huge deck overlooking the racing venue. Brand new docks have been installed in the harbor with full attention to accommodating large dinghy regattas. The harbor hosts two fully powered cranes and a large ramp with access docks. All club facilities will be available to sailors and their families with the ability to purchase food and beverages.
Historical Winds/Weather: Wind averages 10.5 mph with temperatures averaging lows of 72 degrees and highs of 89 degrees. In the June timeframe, sailors can expect temperatures in the upper eighties to low nineties and a southerly breeze ranging from seven-to-fifteen mph and higher.
Racing Area: RCYC sits on the Eastern shore of a large, open sailing area of approximately 2.5 miles in diameter that is only minutes from the docks and ideal for setting quality courses of substantial length, no matter the wind direction. The starting line is often less than a five minute sail from the dock. Another significant benefit of the location is that all lake-front commercial establishments and fuel docks are located at the opposite end of the lake so power boat traffic is minimal.
1) Private homes: Rush creek members have a long history of opening their homes to visiting sailors.
2) Hotels: There are several Hotels within an easy 15 minute drive of RCYC, most offering nightly rates of approximately $95 with a range from $52-$189. Many of these hotels are located within walking distance of popular restaurants and shopping. Discount rates for the event are being worked on.
3) Camping: The three acre field on the shore of the lake and adjacent to Rush Creek’s clubhouse is simply fantastic for tent camping and RVs (no hook-ups). Twenty-four hour access to clubhouse showers and restroom facilities are provided. Additionally, a nice, full service RV facility is available only 25 minutes from RCYC.
