The Burnham Park Yacht Club is situated in the newly configured Museum Campus Area of Chicago's lakefront and is located on Northerly Island which forms the Eastern shore of Burnham Harbor, the most sheltered harbor in Chicago.
The clubhouse provides views facing the harbor, offering magnificent views of the harbor activity as well as a panoramic vista of Chicago's skyline, said to be the most exquisite view of Chicago.
The Commodore presides over an active racing club that features a junior program, predicted log racers in powerboating, leading one-design, and big boat/ocean sailboat racers.
The Burnham Park Yacht Club is one of the most active yacht clubs in the Chicago Area. Activities involve all facets of recreational boating including sail, power, educational and social. The sail fleet involves a variety of interests from pure racing to casual cruising. The club sponsors five offshore racing regattas each season.
