Welcome to the Mackinac Island Yacht Club web site.
The Yacht Club, founded in 1937, currently includes 310 members, many of whom are residents of Mackinac Island, Michigan. The clubhouse sits directly across from the Michigan State Waterways marina in the Mackinac Island harbor.

The clubhouse is
open from about mid-May until mid-October. It offers members
use of comfortable living quarters, a scenic porch and serves
members and their guests. The house contains seven second and
third floor rooms that are available
for overnight accommodations for members and their guests.
Please feel free to contact us, if you would like more information about the club.
Our new beautiful landscaping with commemorative pavers! Completed in Spring 2013.
What a great winter! Here on Mackinac we have great snow and great crossing ice! Temperatures are cold, but we don't go out unless we are in full snowmobile gear! And cross country skiing is such a great workout, you stay warm regardless of the temperature. But the temperatures are going up...and spring is around the corner. (It should be an incredibly beautiful break up lining the shores with all this ice.)
It's time to start planning your summer visit to the Club. I have been taking reservations all winter and it is looking to be another great summer. You may email me at this address or call the club phone 906-847-3363 to make reservations. Check our Members Only section for information on availability.
I am editing the directory so if you have any last minute changes, email me.
Also, I am sending in another order of Brick Pavers in the next month for spring placement. If you haven't placed an order for one, contact me.
Looking forward to another great season.
