Welcome to Grosse Ile Yacht Club

Welcome to the GIYC….
If you are looking for a yacht club with fabulous views of Lake Erie with the various boat and freighter traffic plying its waters – a beautiful venue with its own kitchen and chef providing delicious food choices – members and staff that make you feel that your are a part of our club’s “family” – a harbor where reciprocal AYC, DRYA, and/or I-LYA affiliate members have overnight complimentary docking privileges – a venue that offers facilities for weddings, anniversaries, business meetings or other celebratory events – you have found it at the Grosse Ile Yacht Club, providing opportunities for boaters since 1934.


We are a yacht club whose members include and welcome both power and sailing watercraft. Our learn to sail programs for both juniors 8 to 18 and adults are unparalleled, and include races and regattas for both beginning and experienced sailors. We are easily accessible across from Sugar Island in the Detroit River, at the mouth of Lake Erie. If you need further information, feel free to contact me at 734-675-5333 or roblync@comcast.net.
