                                                     Welcome to Winthrop Harbor Yacht Club

The Winthrop Harbor Yacht Club, located in Winthrop Harbor, IL. is not just about the boat.  It's really more about the people at Winthrop Harbor Yacht Club; People with a Passion for Boating. The Club is located 60 miles north of Chicago on the western shores of Lake Michigan. Whether you're new to boating, or seasoned and looking for a great harbor to spend your boating months, Winthrop Harbor is a great choice! We offer a community lifestyle, for Power, Sail and Performance enthusiasts, with educational classes, theme parties, dinners and activities during the summer, as well as throughout the year, for members of all ages. Stop by, we would love to show you our club, and introduce you to our members.

The Club is Open, but following state guidelines

    Our club is partially open, following all state requirements. The Canoe Bar is now open on Fridays from 6-10pm, and on Saturdays from 4- approx. 11pm.  Welcome back to this summers boating season. Stay safe!
