Important Safety Notice for Boaters
Lake Michigan is at record high water levels and the danger of submerged obstacles has grown significantly. The below video is provided to highlight many - but not all - of the most common hazards seen along the lakefront. A reminder that ultimately, safe navigation is the responsibility of the boater...please be safe this summer! Thank you to #ChicagoHarbors for the video!
The Club owns a fleet of eleven, 23' keelboats available for member rental. Sign up for daily rentals or buy a season pass. These boats have a simple design that hold up to five people that make getting on the water easy for anyone interested.
Paddle BoardS & Kayaks
The waterfront is more accessible than ever with paddle boards and kayaks available to our members. Rent daily or purchase a season pass. Anyone can get on the water after a brief instruction with the board or boat! Paddle sports are great for a tour of the harbor and daily exercise.
Match racing is a staple in the Club’s racing program. Belmont Station hosts Tuesday night practices and match racing regattas including a Grade 2 and Grade 3 event.
Member Exclusive Boat Rentals and Charter Opportunities
Chicago Yacht Club members have a passion for getting out on the water, but almost 40 percent don’t own a boat. However, there are several companies owned by your fellow Chicago Yacht Club members that offer boat rentals and captained cruises and are offering exclusive rates for our members. Take advantage of these opportunities and then stop by the Club for lunch, dinner, or a glass of wine after your cruise. As part of this cooperative arrangement, Chicago Yacht Club committees will also have an opportunity to book specialty cruise events at discounted rates through these member companies. When making your reservation, mention you are a Chicago Yacht Club member to receive exclusive pricing.
*Please make all arrangements directly with the boat company. Chicago Yacht Club is neither agent or charterer and nothing herein shall constitute an endorsement by Chicago Yacht Club of any service or product. Chicago Yacht Club disclaims any liability with respect to the use of any such service or product.
