We welcome you and your family to the Jackson Park Yacht Club. Founded in 1896, shortly after the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, the Jackson Park Yacht Club is one of the oldest yacht clubs in Chicago. The club is located in the Jackson Park outer harbor, across from the old U.S. Coast Guard Station, along the southern shores of Lake Michigan in the South Shore neighborhood of Chicago.

Our members are sailors, racers, power boaters, cruisers, stewards of the sea and people who enjoy fun on the water, at the dock, or in our Clubhouse.
We make fun happen.
