Join the Charlevoix Yacht Club!
Thank you for considering membership in the Charlevoix Yacht Club. As a member of the CYC you will have the chance to participate in many club activities while meeting other area boaters. Powerboat and cruising sailboat members explore new destinations and rendezvous at the end of the day to share their experiences, providing an excellent opportunity to expand your knowledge of both local and offshore waters. Sailors participate from May to October on Lake Charlevoix in Wednesday evening race series and weekend offshore races. The traditional Labor Day weekend Red Fox Regatta draws sailboats from all over the Great Lakes to compete. This regatta provides an excellent opportunity for all members to get involved either on the water or at social gatherings at the end of the race days.
The CYC, established in 1970, is a club made up of about 200 local and non-local boating enthusiasts. While boat ownership is not required, most of our members do own boats. The CYC maintains the Club facility at 209 Ferry Avenue, staffed by volunteers. The Club is open Friday evenings, and Wednesday evenings May-October. Annual social events include a Casino Night and the annual Commodore’s Ball. Special events are publicized at the club website as well as a bimonthly newsletter and weekly email updates. The facility is available to rent.
Membership runs for a calendar year January-December, and is confirmed with a membership card that is reciprocated nationally with other yacht clubs. Membership is via application and payment of dues. CYC also offers a limited Crew Membership (application) for non-members who crew on racing boats. We invite you to visit us at the club on a Wednesday race evening or any Friday evening from 6 to 9 p.m., or check out our website at: www.charlevoixyachtclub.org. If you have any questions, please call Terry Walkington at 989-928-2835, or email: membership@CharlevoixYachtClub.org.
