|Yacht Club Profile: Racine Yacht Club|
Racine Yacht Club (RYC) is located on Lake Michigan, at the mouth of the Root River in Racine, Wis., approximately 30 miles south of Milwaukee and 60 miles north of Chicago, Ill. RYC offers many attractions including its own slip system, dry sailing area, bar with flat panel TVs, dining area, patio, private beach with playground, and more.
The adventurous can join the racing fleet, the power squadron or the adult sailing classes for some excitement. Kids can be kept occupied during the summer with junior sailing classes.
RYC is also the home of the Hook Race. The Hook Race combines strong competition with the navigational challenge of Death's Door. Finishing the race at the M&M Yacht Club in Menominee, Mich., provides opportunities for cruising vacations afterwards. The M&M Yacht Club has several races planned for the following week culminating with their 100 Miler. The Hook Race is a Category 3 race open to all sailboats eligible to make a race of this distance and duration. This year's race will begin July 24.
For a very reasonable cost, Racine Yacht Club offers many ways to increase your boating pleasure, skills and knowledge, along with building a lasting camaraderie with others who enjoy Lake Michigan.
