Welcome to the Water

The SHYC has a long history of offering sailing programs to all ages and abilities and are excited to continue to offer many opportunities for our members to enjoy the waters of Lake Michigan. Whether you want to Learn to Sail, participate in weekly Racing or be a part of Race Committee, we have something for you!

We are a US Sailing and Lake Michigan Racing Federation member club. We host the annual Invitational Regatta as well as our own Commodore’s Cup in addition to participating with many other regional and local Regattas.

If you are looking for training in education and safety on the water, we have many offerings through our Sailing Education programs. You can learn how to sail, work as a team and the rules of the waterways…all while having fun!

Race Committee

The SHYC Race Committee ensures we offer a fair, competitive and quality Racing program. Without the support of our dedicated member volunteers, our racing program would not be possible. The Committee consists of Volunteers who love being on the water and have an interest in Race management and usually is made up of around 10 members.

The Committee is responsible for overseeing the season kickoff Shakedown Race, roughly 16 Thursday night races from May to September, the Invitational Regatta and our Commodore’s Cup to end the season. Club and Member owned boats are used for help during these races and regattas.

We are always looking for new and enthusiastic volunteers to join the Race Committee. If interested in becoming involved, please reach out to the Race Committee Chair at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
