Lake Bluff Yacht Club is located in Lake Bluff, Illinois along the shore of Lake Michigan north of Chicago.  This provides an excellent place to enjoy sailing and learn in many varied sailing conditions.

Mission Statement:  "The Lake Bluff Yacht Club will be a world class Sunfish sailing club providing the highest quality sailing programs, including racing instruction, family participation, social activities, and community involvement"

Membership consists of 130 families in Lake Bluff and the surrounding communities.

If you are an experienced racer but have not been active in a while, we have an easy way to get back into one-design competition. We have a collection of club boats and a friendly, experienced fleet of racers who also compete in other sailboat racing venues including the Chicago to Mackinac race.

Our Activities include a Summer Sunfish racing series, Fall Sunfish racing series, annual Invitational Regatta, and host to several recent Sunfish Class Association Sunfish regattas including Women's North American Championship, Regional Sunfish Regattas, and various Junior Regattas. Our fleet racing occurs every Sunday afternoon from Memorial Day weekend through mid-October.

Youth Sailing instruction is provided in partnership with the Lake Bluff Park District. Visit the Lake Bluff Park District website for more information.

Many Social events throughout the year provide both sailors and non-sailors with opportunities for fun and companionship.  Events include a Brunch on the Bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, and a Lobster Boil on the beach.
