Spring Lake Yacht Club is nestled in wooded acres along the north bank of Spring Lake. The lake’s exceptional beauty, north-south orientation and prevailing westerly Lake Michigan breezes make it a natural for those who enjoy the best of sailing and power boating.

SLYC has active racing fleets in six classes so if you are looking to race sailboats, we have something that will suit your style.
