History

Bay City Yacht Club est. 1954 - 64 years and counting!

In 1954 a group of enthusiastic and very determined Saginaw Bay boaters pooled their talents and resources to begin the new Bay City Yacht Club at the mouth of the Saginaw River. From this auspicious beginning along what is now known as the Waterway, the Club developed both the North and South basins during the ‘60s. Improvements continued into the ‘70s with the Grand Opening of the new Clubhouse in 1977. During the ‘80s the South Basin was further developed and enlarged into what we have today – the best deep draft harbor in the region. The BCYC has historically been operated as a cooperative with members coming together to work on the facilities and manage the Club - all to offset the cost of doing business and keep dues and fees affordable. We continue to stay true to that original Mission to this day. Today’s Bay City Yacht Club is the result of decades of cooperative effort to continuously improve the grounds and facilities. As a result, BCYC members now enjoy very affordable membership and services surrounded in a park-like setting with close, easy access to the Bay.
