 Lonely Planet called Taal Lake Yacht Club the "sailing Mecca of the Philippines".    

We think of ourselves as a "club by sailors for sailors"  We take pride in how we are different from all the other Yacht clubs and country clubs in the Philippines.  1)We allow non-members. 2) Our membership criteria center around the sport rather than money. Read this as "you can't buy your way into this club, you have to earn the right to join". 3)We allow you to camp and picnic with your own food. 4) We allow boat charters and teach non-members to sail. 

GOALS   
Our focus is using environmentally friendly watersports to promote environmental awareness and family togetherness. We support civic organizations like school groups and scout troops that have similar goals. Click the yellow text that says "civic/school" on the left hand navigation bar. Right click on it and choose "open in new window". 

ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS   
TLYC actively supports, promotes, and instigates international and local environmental action programs. Of particular concern is the preservation of the ecological balance of Taal Lake.   click on the "environment" link on the left to find out more. 

SPORTS    
Sailing:   
TLYC's  activites revolve around our yacht racing schedule, and our "learn to sail" or "sail training" programs.

Hobie Racing
Hobie 16s are the main racing class, and There are over 2 dozen boats that are either privately owned, or owned by the club, and available for rent. click  "Hobie class" on the left to find out more. 

Learn to sail in Toppers
The Topper class is actively raced, and is also our prime "learn to sail" boat. click the Topper class and sail training links at left for more info. 

Windsurfing
TLYC is a good windsurfing destination and the windsurfing fleet holds regattas a couple of times a year.  
Click "Windsurfing" at left to find out more. 

Other sailing
We do have other boats like sunfishes, and soon, small keelboats.   Our Hobie 21 can take groups of up to 7 Adults. Click "sail rentals" at left to find out more.

Rowing and Kayaking   
TLYC rents out Kayaks which are very easy to use. They are virtually unsinkable,  and unbreakable, and and require no previous experience or training to use. 
Click the "Kayaks" link at left to see more.   
The Rowing program is new, and it uses single sculls, pairs and fours. We have training sculls for beginners. click the "rowing" link to see what we have. 

Hiking and Nature Trails
Trips To Taal Volcano 
Treking Taal is how many people discover TLYC. We have the best rates and the safest boats on the lake. Before you climbTaal Volcano, click the "Volcano trips" link in the left margin. 
Philippine media have done an independent assessment of our trips, and there are comments from individuals we dont really know,

FAMILY   
We are family oriented. We want the whole family to use TLYC. We have swings for the kids, and lounge chairs for those who want to just kick back and read. Our bathrooms are OK, and we not only have hot water, but we also have cold beer.  We allow picnics and camping, so that everyone will have a memorable role in the experience.  click "camping." 
We  have other things to do like volcano trips and treks, and summer camps for kids.   

MEMBERSHIP AND ENTRY   
Membership is a status that is earned, rather than bought. We only grant memberships to accomplished sailors and rowers.     
We do realize however that since it is our goal to introduce the sport of sailing to new people, we cannot  limit entry to only the experts. So, we must allow non-members.  Currently, the charge to non members is P100/person /day.  If non members qualify for membership, they may apply. Once accepted, they will no longer need to pay the P100/day entry fee, they will pay monthly dues instead, and they will be able to bring in a limited# of guests free of charge. If you want to be a member, click on "membership" to see your options. 
    
ONE AND A HALF HOURS FROM MANILA    
We are less than 20 minutes from Tagaytay, over all concrete roads. This makes us an excellent daytrip destination. Click on the "getting there" link on the left sidebar for a map and directions.   
     
Weather    
For a very accurate, up to the minute weather or wind report, you can call or text Greg at cell# 09196046197. Click on the "weather" link and learn to predict the wind over several days.   

Newsletter   
TLYC has a newsletter that goes out about once a month. You can sign up by sending an e-mail to peter@sailing.org.ph and type something like "PLs put me on the newsletter" or words to that effect. Or, you can sign up at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hobienews and also read past posts.
