Sailing has always been the cornerstone of activities at MBYC. Club programs and fleets offer a wide variety of opportunities, from Optimist Prams, Lasers, and 420s for young sailors, to JY 15 racing on Thursday nights for the ladies, to competitive offshore racing in boats up to 46 feet. Additional active fleets such as the traditional 110s, the timeless S2 7.9 One Design, Melges 17, and Melges 20 provide a broad selection of sailing competition for both novice and experienced sailors. In addition, MBYC hosts several regional and national events each year that bring some of the worlds best sailors to West Michigan. Many Club members enjoy a more casual sailing experience, perhaps an afternoon cruise up Lake Macatawa, or a sunset cruise on Lake Michigan. The opportunities are almost endless.
