As Chicago Yacht Club’s one-design sailing headquarters, Belmont is home to our renowned junior and adult sailing programs. Approximately 300 young boaters take part in our sailing school each season. Belmont Station also hosts various sailing activities throughout the year including competitive one-design class racing in Etchells, Shields, Luders and Vanguards. Weekly Chicago Match Racing Center races on Tuesday's during the season, Wednesday night Beer Can Racing runs in conjunction with Monroe Station during the summer, and the spring and fall Sunday Frost Bite Racing round out the yachting calendar.
The Club recently purchased 11 23' sonars, with two specifically rigged for rec sailing for CYC members to rent and sail. In addition we own several paddle boards and kayaks for members to rent at a minimal rate.
Belmont offers a casual atmosphere for cruisers and racers alike. Just spend one afternoon in the floating clubhouse and you'll understand why our members love Belmont.
At Belmont Station, casual attire is acceptable at all times.
