About the Charlevoix Yacht Club

Established 1970.

The Charlevoix Yacht Club, with over 50 years of history, stands as a financially sound, socially active, and highly respected organization among yachtsmen.

As a volunteer-driven entity, we work to maintain our Clubhouse facility, featuring a welcoming social and program area, a well-equipped kitchen, and a friendly bar.)

Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, we organize multiple successful racing series, including the well-regarded Red Fox Regatta, which draws nearly 100 boats from various locations. 

Beyond racing, we host various offshore events and enjoyable social occasions. Many of our members, whether enthusiasts of power or sail, actively explore the vast expanse of the Great Lakes.

The diverse membership of active boaters contributes to the enjoyment of our social gatherings, creating memorable moments and engaging stories shared around the fireplace during the winter months.

Mission Statement

The Charlevoix Yacht Club is a year-round casual social club for boaters of varied interests, which includes sailboat racing and cruising by both power and sail. Members meet socially on Friday evenings and for seasonal sailboat racing on Wednesday evenings. We encourage family participation and youth training programs to grow our membership. The strength of our club revolves around volunteer participation. Our camaraderie and unequaled location attract diverse membership. Boat ownership is optional.
