WELCOME TO HISTORIC TOLEDO YACHT CLUB
Toledo Yacht Club extends a warm welcome to you and your family. While many club activities take on a decidedly nautical flavor, there is much more to TYC. As one of the oldest yacht clubs in the US, TYC enjoys affiliations with the Inter-Lake Yachting Association, Associated Yacht Clubs, Detroit Regional Yacht Racing Association and Boat/US. Our affiliations provide Toledo Yacht Club members access to virtually any yacht club in the United States and Canada.
The Toledo Yacht Club's history dates to the mid-1800's when rowing was much more popular, and power boats were still a dream. A disastrous fire totally destroyed the frame building on the current site in 1906. The present masonry clubhouse was completed in 1908. Today's stately clubhouse continues its historic legacy with a formal dining room, complete banquet and catering service, a third floor ballroom, lunches and casual dining in the Den Bar with fireplace and large-screen televisions. Trophy cases and nautical memorabilia fill every corner of the club, reminding members and guests of the tradition that is still carried on today.
TYC is well known for its Commodore's Ball, the Back-to-the-Bay Party, hosting the prestigious Mills Trophy Race, summertime cruises, and many other family activities including Mother's Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving events, and Brunch with Santa. TYC's swimming pool affords members a great way to get in the water when they are not on the water. Tennis, basketball, and a children's playground means you will never run out of things to do while at port. There is also a sheltered picnic area set secluded away from other club activities for private parties.
A full-time staff care for the day-to-day club operations, but for those who like to socialize by serving on a committee or two, the Entertainment and Cruise Committees keep members dancing, dining, and cruising to other clubs, Canada, the Islands, and Cedar Point.
Few Clubs can provide the sheltered, yet convenient access to the Great Lakes that TYC offers. The superb location at the mouth of the Maumee River affords TYC's boating members the option of a leisurely cruise up the river for the 4th of July fireworks or the open waters of Lake Erie, the Islands, and great boating, sailing, and fishing.
TYC's monthly newsletter, the Jib Sheet, the website, weekly e-mails, and the Facebook page keep members up-to-date on club activities and other subjects of interest. An annual membership directory helps members keep in touch. Special Events are advertised to members by flyers and posters.
Toledo Yacht Club offers a full range of membership options (Full Boating, Social, Junior, and Non-Resident memberships) and a deep water marina, with dock sizes to accomodate boats from 25'-75'+. Fuel and pumpout facilities are available adjacent to the club in the Harbor.
