Concord Yacht Club consists of sailing enthusiasts of every age devoted to promoting and cultivating the sport of sailing and sailboat racing.
In addition to hosting regattas and other sailing and social events for Knoxville and its surrounding communities, the club provides facilities, equipment, and instruction so that everyone in and around Knoxville can have the opportunity to learn and appreciate sailing.
Becoming a member of Concord Yacht Club is the most cost-effective way to enjoy sailing in Knoxville.
Clubhouse & Bathhouse - The clubhouse facilities serve as venues for a variety of social, educational, recreational, and competitive events throughout the year. In addition to an expansive terrace overlooking Fort Loudoun Lake, the Clubhouse features full kitchen facilities, a banquet room, and a library/meeting room. Men’s and women’s shower rooms are connected to the clubhouse by a breezeway.
Grounds - The grounds contain several picnic pavilions, a playground, and a sandy beach area for swimming and playing.
The Harbor - The Harbor’s three floating dock systems are fully supplied with water, with the exception of winter, and 15amp power for year round docking. To support Clean Marina Practices, CYC maintains a dock mounted Peristaltic Pump-Out Station for boat sewage waste disposal. Additional boat storage options include parking areas for trailered boats, summer-only slips, moorings, on-the-water racks for small dinghys, and winter storage. Specialized equipment is available to launch and maintain a range of sailboat sizes including a hand-launch platform for small dinghies, boat ramps and a boat lift for trailered vessels, and a larger marine railway for fixed-keel boats.
CYC hosts several member and open regattas throughout the year. Notices of Race (NOR), Sailing Instructions (SI), and regatta results are always posted here on this site. A handicap form is required for all new keelboats.
In addition to adult racing, each week area high school and University of Tennessee sailing teams hold practice, and the Sea Scouts conduct adventure and personal development activities.
