One of the most unique features of the Chicago Yacht Club is that we occupy not just one, but two stations. These two very different, yet equally engaging, clubhouses sit in two of the most scenic and convenient locations in Chicago. The Monroe and Belmont Stations are lively centers for all our yachting activities and club events, from fine dining and holiday galas, to theater parties and brunch before Bears games. Both of our clubhouses offer convenient parking, transient slips for members and visiting yachtsmen, shower and locker room facilities, and excellent private rooms for meetings, receptions, and other gatherings.
The Cruising Sail Fleet is an active fleet of sailors interested in cruising to ports on Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes, to distant ports of call (some have been to the Caribbean and around the world!), or just local cruising with family and friends.
The One-Design racing calendar has included the following in years past: Etchells, J24, Soling, Shields, and International 110 Class National and World Championships the Timme Angsten National Collegiate Dinghy Championships the Jimmy Talbot Memorial Laser Regatta and the US Sailing Youth Championship. The Club also maintains launching and dry-sailing facilities for various one-design class boats.
