OUR STORY

In 1933, the Michigan City Yacht Club, at its inception under a group of enterprising yachtsmen, headed by Harry Frey, gathered to form an organization dedicated to the promotion of yachting on our lakefront.

The original charter was applied for and granted by the State of Indiana on May 27, 1933.

The Michigan City Yacht Club was founded as a non-profit corporation “for the promotion of yachting.” Every effort was made to increase racing activities for sail yachts, to organize Club cruises for power yachts, to develop the vitally important Junior Program and to carry on the social life of the Club in both summer and winter in a manner of interest to all members.
