BYC is a member run club brought together by our passion of sailing.
BYC operates as a Non Profit Corporation under the direction of a Board of Directors. Elected by the members each fall the Board develops educational programs, social events, junior programs, club racing, and regattas for the benefit of both our membership and the sailing community around the region.
Berlin Yacht Club is located between Akron and Youngstown, Berlin Lake sits within Portage, Mahoning and Stark Counties and offers a large open body of water that is well suited to sailing all season long. The club grounds are open to members year around with the Club House building open May thru October.
BYC has much to offer families and sailors:
Club house with full kitchen, fireplace, bathrooms, showers
Drysail boat storage
Large concrete launch ramp
Singlehanded boat storage and launching at the club
The Club House is situated on a bluff overlooking the lake where watching the eagles soar above the lake, beautiful sunsets and the boats flying across the lake are a fun summer time treat.
Contact Us for more information. One of our members will get in touch with you as soon as possible. If you would like to stop by the club grounds and look around, there are scheduled activities on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays where you'll probably get invited to go sailing.
