Welcome to Pontiac Yacht Club

Pontiac Yacht Club was chartered in 1934 as a family club, exclusively for sailboats. We are based on the shores Cass Lake, in Orchard Lake Village, Michigan with a beautiful lake-side club house and well kept grounds that are popular with all ages.


The club has an active membership that are involved in sailing for pleasure and competition, with a racing program that has over 70 races scheduled each season. A range of instructional programs are offered to both adults and children, and the atmosphere is friendly and informal.

Lightning Class sailboats were chosen to represent the club because of their strong class organization and suitability to mix of deep water and shallows Cass Lake. Our Lightning Fleet, No. 54, is the largest in the world with over 60 registered Lightnings. There is also a competitive open-class single hander series (mostly made up of Lasers, Sunfish and Windsurfs).


While competing in events is a fun and popular activity for yacht club members, many just enjoy coming for a casual sail on a summer's evening.

Today, the fine facilities, excellent racing program, and frequent club social activities combine to offer a wholesome family experience. The beautiful shady swimming area is free from motor boats, and has shallow clear water suitable for small children and non-swimmers. There is also a designated deep water area for more experienced swimmers.


Our shaded grounds have many picnic tables, lawn chairs, and grills to make club picnics a enjoyable experience. There is also a large kitchen for preparation. And the large sandbox, swings, and climbing equipment make children feel welcome at the club.


New Members are Always Welcome
