About the Pontiac Yacht Club

Since 1934


The Pontiac Yacht Club is a social volunteer club, which means that we all help with certain tasks to keep the docks, ground, house, and other functions running the club.  Members that volunteer keep our membership dues low, and it enhances the feeling of ownership. Regular activities at PYC include:

  • Sailing for pleasure on the weekends.
  • Sailing competitively in the Lightning class sailboats (crew,       experienced or inexperienced - are always welcome).
  • Sailing single-hander boats such as the Laser, Sunfish, Opti and
    Windsurf, either for pleasure (anytime) or racing on Monday evenings.
  • Taking part in Adult sailing lessons.
  • Sign your children up to the extremely active Junior Sailing program.
  • Come out and enjoy our many social events and regattas.


Our beautiful facilities, excellent racing program, and frequent club social activities combine to offer a wholesome family experience. The relaxing, shady swimming area is free from motorboats and has shallow clear water suitable for small children and non-swimmers. There is also a designated deep-water area for more experienced swimmers.


Our shaded grounds have many picnic tables, lawn chairs, and grills to make club picnics an enjoyable experience. There is also a large kitchen for preparation. The large sandbox, swings, and play structure make children feel welcome at the club too.
