Local Sailing Lakes

Literally hundreds of people have asked us, "Where can you sail in Kansas City?" So we've decided to list local lakes that support the Kansas City area sailing community.

The table below is a work in progress. We are also starting a list of yacht and sailing clubs (bottom). Please contact us with any corrections or information you would like to list about your club.
