Founded in 1939, Chippewa Yacht Club was created to foster, encourage, and engage members of the community in the sport of sailing. Our clubhouse, boatyard, and docks are located on the shores of beautiful Chippewa Lake, Ohio. Membership is open to all who have a love of sailing and is granted by a majority of the voting members. Our focus is recreational and competitive sailing and in providing engaging social events for our members, families and guests.
Anyone with a sailboat 22 foot or under is welcome to join us, however, we focus on racing Y-Flyer and Snipe (dinghy classes) every Sunday throughout the summer. Chippewa Lake is generally considered the "Motherland" of the Y-Flyer.
Through the summer each year we organize races for other fleets, our annual Y-Flyer Regatta, a "Woodies" Regatta, a SeaScout Regatta and the annual Small Boat Regatta for Sunfish or Lasers.
