We are the members of LPWSA, pursuing the goal of increasing women's participation in the sport, the only sailing group for women that draws members from all of the local clubs on Lake Pontchartrain, as well as women who are unaffiliated with any sailing club. LPWSA encourages women to take the helm of their own boats in regattas such as their annual 'Pamela Sintes Memorial' and 'Fleur De Lis' regatta's, as well as the 'Wednesday Night Racing' series and 'Friday Night Twilight' series. If you are a sailor, or a wanna-be sailor and would like to participate in our activities, we cordially invite you to join!

The Southern Yacht Club was founded in 1849 by New Orleans and Gulf Coast residents seeking the camaraderie and challenge of yacht racing in the Mid-Gulf region. As the Corinthian sport of yachting grew in popularity, so did the club. With that growth, came the capacity for more and varied activities at the West End clubhouse. Over the years, Southern Yacht Club has hosted U.S. Presidents, been an important venue for early jazz pioneers, and offered up its clubhouse for Naval operations during World War II. The club has also hosted national and international regattas and produced world-class sailors, including four Olympic medalists.
