Mt. Vernon Yacht Club opens May 4

April 17, 2019

May 4, 2019 will be the launch of the Mt. Vernon Yacht Club at Veteran’s Memorial Park Lake in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. Yes, it is a Yacht Club! The boats are up to 20 inches long and crewed by adults and kids of all ages.
The Commodore, Bud Davis, and the Lady of the Lake, Candy Luzar, decided after the City of Mt. Vernon committed to and invested in improving the lake, it was time to now add fun to the lake with the Mt. Vernon Yacht Club.

It is open to the public, and memberships with special discounts will also be available. Boats can be rented with adult supervision, and instructions will be included. Races and activities are planned.

Come make some memories at Veteran’s Memorial Park Lake on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (weather permitting).

For more information give the Commodore a call at 618-508-1796. Check them out at
