The Bantam Lake Yacht Club, 
	   founded in 1933, looks out over a sprawling green
lawn at the South Bay of Bantam Lake just south of Litchfield in 
North Western Connecticut.  For almost 100 years, families have
enjoyed this close community in which to race small sailboats, socialize, and relax.
 We race every Sunday afternoon, generally in a mixed fleet, very low-key, 
with no protests. We also run "around the lake" race July 4th and the French Cup Race 
over Labor Day. In addition, organized sunfish and windmill regattas are also held each season.

 	Members keep their boats on yacht club grounds and launch from the beach

and sailing instruction is available for juniors ( 9 - 18)  and adults. This is organized
 through the Litchfield Parks and Recreation Dept 
Private Lessons are also available from the Sailing Instructor Susan Smith
