The origin of the Boyne City Yacht Club has been traced back thru the misty past to a summer evening in 1987. A small group of boating enthusiasts who were involved in racing, gathered at the Boyne River Inn in Boyne City to discuss starting a club. After a few refreshments, everyone heartily agreed this was a good idea, and the Boyne Yacht Club (BYC) was formed. In 1988, the BYC reconstituted itself as the Boyne City Yacht Club (BCYC); under the leadership of Commodore Jim Howell. The lounge of the old One Water Street was adopted as the Club’s informal clubhouse. The 288 individuals who joined the BCYC in 1988 were designated the Club’s “Charter Members.” Today, the Club has some 475 members.

The present Club consists of a group of fun loving water enthusiasts including power and sail boaters.Our calendar of activities spans the entire year.  In the summer there are a series of weekly sailboat races held each Tuesday evening at the southeast end of Lake Charlevoix, and several cruises to rendezvous destinations. Our off-season activities have grown to a full calendar of events including Change of Watch, the Commodore’s Ball and an ever-changing list of other fun activities.  If you’d like to participate in these and many other great events, why not join BCYC?  It’s quick and easy.  Simply click “Join Here” below or on our Homepage to get started!
