A Proud Legacy and Mission
The Grand Traverse Yacht Club was formed in 1960 as a small boat sailing club. Racing is still the primary focus of the club with PHRF and one-design competition on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday nights and weekends. The general fleet is composed of sail and power boats that cruise the Great Lakes and beyond. Youth sailing is promoted through a partnership with Traverse Area Community Sailing and local High School sailing teams. The GTYC clubhouse is open to members all year for social activities and rentals; check the calendar for details.
