Detroit Yacht Club
The Historic Detroit Yacht Club, founded in 1868, is one of the oldest and most prestigious private Clubs in North America. Although Social Members exceed Boating Members in number, yachts, boats, and almost anything which floats are a vital part of many of the DYC’s activities. The DYC’s adult learn-to-sail program is one of the best of its kind anywhere. Our classes use the DYC’s fleet of Flying Scots, which are 19-foot sloop-rigged sailboats.
