Welcome to Shorewood Yacht Club
We are a unique "home" for the sailor who seeks something more than just a place to tie their boat.
Sailors can enjoy the camaraderie of fellow sailors throughout the year at Shorewood Yacht Club. The active social and race committees sponsor several organized fun races and family events.
