Lightning Class sailboats were chosen to represent the club because of their strong class organization and suitability to mix of deep and shallow water on Cass Lake.
Our Lightning Fleet, No. 54, is the largest in the world with over 60 registered Lightnings. The Lightning Club racing at PYC occurs every Wednesday at 6 PM and Sundays at 9 AM during the Michigan sailing season beginning around the 1st of May and ending around the middle of October.
There is also a competitive open-class single handed small boat series (mostly made up of Lasers, Sunfish and Windsurfs).While competing in events is a fun and popular activity for yacht club members, many just enjoy coming for a casual sail on a summer's evening.
