We're 'knot' what you think!
There are not many, if any, yachts at our yacht club!
We are, however, a family-oriented, volunteer-based, social organization dedicated to promoting water safety, education and enjoyment of sailing, boating and other water-related activities in a socially-inclusive environment for generations to come.
“GLYC” and “GLSS” (Gull Lake Sailing School) was founded in 1947 and continues to operate from the eastern shores of Gull Lake near Brainerd, Minnesota. From social mixers to planned parties and events, GLYC has grown to accommodate its members and the community with a facility that can be enjoyed by all.
GLSS focuses on teaching kids to advance their knowledge in sailing techniques and expand their enjoyment of being on the water. Our instructor led courses focus on the variety of skills from kids of all ages.
Kick off your holiday weekend with a party for the whole family!
Between 11 am and 2 pm, GLYC members and their families are invited to join us for our
Family Fun Day event! We'll have a bounce house courtesy of Party World in Baxter,
face painting and wacky hair with the lovely ladies of J'Amelia's Salon in Pequot Lakes,
fun make-and-take crafts, outdoor games, free pizza and pop from XIX on Gull, and much more!

Cabins for a Cause
In September 2015, Gull Lake will be host to the 40th annual Antique and Classic Boat Society’s annual meeting and International Boat Show. This is the first time this international affair has been held in Minnesota.
The ACBS is an international organization founded in 1974 with over 7,000 members and over 50 local chapters around the world. As part of this multi-day event, a classic boat show will be held September 25-26th at Bar Harbor and is open to the public.
With an event of this magnitude comes a need for lodging and comfortably accommodating all guests. In an effort to extend our Minnesota Nice hospitality, as well as benefit the GLYC/SS organization, we’re looking for Gull/Round/North Long Lake homeowners who’d be inclined to offer the rental of their home to event participants between September 20th and 27th. Rental fees would then, in turn, be donated directly to the Gull Lake Sailing School, allowing renters to make a donation to the club. GLYC/SS will reimburse homeowners for cleaning fees.
If you’re interested in helping us make this opportunity possible, please contact Jenny Holmes at email@example.com or (218) 839-9540.
