On  the Water

Because spending time on the water is what we are all about...

On Land

When the boat’s tied up, relaxing on land with friends and family is also why we’re here...


It's not always a race! Whether you have a power or sail boat, join us for a weekend cruising rendezvous at destinations around southeast Michigan and Ontario or grab a meal to go from the galley before you head out on the water for some fun on your own.


GLYC has two Sonar sailboats available for Club members use. We encourage, promote and foster sailing for all ages!


GLYC has encouraged the sport of competitive sailing since its founding in 1952. The club has a strong race management team with dedicated member-volunteers. Our race program includes a full complement of resources, such as committee boats and experienced race committee and race results personnel.

In-season Social Gatherings

Join your fellow members in our club-sponsored social activities including Saturday night cocktail hours, New Member Appreciation Party, themed parties, and more!

Off-season Social Gatherings

While the boat's tucked away for winter, that doesn’t mean the fun has to end!  Keeping in touch during the off-season can help pass the time.

Lobster Party

Every year, the club sponsors a Lobster Party!  Get to know one another better and partake in some fantastic fresh lobster at one of our club’s signature events.

Shabbat Dinner

Another signature event at GLYC is our Shabbat Dinner.  Fantastic food and good times await whether you’re Jewish or not!  Everyone is welcome.
