As one of Lake Erie’s oldest continuously operated yacht  clubs, The Lorain Sailing and Yacht Club (LSYC) was chartered in 1928 as The Lorain Yacht Club, and traces its roots to the 1911 founding of the Lorain Power Boat Club. Our name has changed, but LSYC’s commitment to support recreational boating of all types remains constant.


LSYC is located in Lorain, OH, near the mouth of the Black River, in the heart of the vibrant revitalization of the Lorain waterfront and one of the area’s leading boating centers.
