The OSC was founded to host sailing enthusiasts and to promote the sport of sailing at the Lake of the Ozarks. The OSC is proud to make its home at the beautiful Ozark Yacht Club, the premier marina for power and sail. The club manages both a robust racing program and a lively social calendar throughout the year.


Our sailing regattas are organized into a spring and a fall series.  Races are scored on the time-on-time (TOT) system using PHRF standards subject to regional interpretations by our racing committee. 

Racing is free and no pre registration is required.  Show up for a race and get on a boat!  Racing is a great introduction to sailing while being supported by seasoned sailors.  Racing is also a great way to practice your sailing skills.  Crew with beginner to advanced sailing skills and experience are welcome. 

Race meetings are held on Dock U at 11:0 a.m. before each race.  Races begin at Noon, near the OYC fuel dock.  Race end times depend on wind and scheduled races.  Bring something for the post-race potlucks.  Our potlucks are a great place to socialize with those who love to sail.

Spectators are welcome!  Enjoy lunch and a nice cool drink from the Lakeside Café and sit on our Crow’s Nest to view the races. The Crow’s Nest is an outdoor balcony, located on the second floor of the Lakeside Café.
