Club Events

Events from ABYA and our Associated Clubs

The Anchor Bay Yachting Association (ABYA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1967.  Our infrastructure is primarily located in the South East corner of the Great State of Michigan, in the Anchor Bay Region of Lake St. Clair, between Lake Huron and Lake Erie.

Our primary goals are to educate the boating community by encouraging clean and safe boating on our lakes, and to promote safety, charity, camaraderie and fellowship within our 25 member clubs.

The ABYA also represents over 7,000 individual members.  During our monthly club sponsored meetings, we strive to discuss legitimate concerns related to boating, provide updates on pending legislation, and listen to guest speakers talk about a variety of boating related topics.

CLUB HISTORY
We began as a cruising club in 1959 to promote safe boating on lake St. Clair. We chose the name Conger Bay because all our meetings were held at The Conger Bay Lodge on Conger Bay owned by George Lukas Sr. The name of the Lodge was changed to Jacks Bay Lounge when it was purchased by Jack Burgilo, Jacks was known as the clubhouse until 1977 when the island lease was purchased. Our Island is located off the Chenal A Bout Rond (Sni Bora) on what is known on the chart as the Pollet cut. Stop by for a visit, we have several functions throughout the summer, the biggest being our annual island party Labor Day weekend. We can accommodate most powerboats up to 50 feet long. Afterall, for over 50 years now, we have been known as

"The Friendliest Club on the Lake"

If you cruise the Great Lakes, you may see a distinctive burgee with five interconnected chain-links that form a complete circle. It identifies the boats’ owners as members of the Great Lakes Cruising Club (GLCC). We proudly fly those burgees from the bow staffs of our power cruisers, or from the spreaders of our sailboats.

And we do get around. GLCC members take their boats far and wide on North America’s five Great Lakes and their tributaries. We are found on the water from Duluth to Quebec; from Chicago to Buffalo; and from Toledo to Toronto. Some members are partial to the legendary North Channel, while others prefer cruising the secluded wilderness of Lake Superior’s North Shore.

The club has more than 2,500 members in the U.S. and Canada. We are known to be a friendly bunch of serious boaters, who warmly welcome new members. We are willing to share our love of the lakes and our knowledge about how to cruise them.

NCYC is a historical, destination Club located on a beautiful four-acre island where the North Channel flows into the northeast corner of Lake St. Clair. The area, known for its miles of canals, streams, and tributaries, is commonly referred to as the “Venice of Michigan”.

Our grand Clubhouse, a Registered Historic Site, is known for a lighted cupola that serves as a navigational guide in the area.

The Club is managed and operated by the membership which results in a couple of important benefits.

First, members’ working closely together for a common cause creates a genuinely congenial atmosphere. There is also a sense of “shared ownership” that fosters a commitment to the highest standards for Club amenities and activities.

Second, as a member-run club, operating costs are relatively low. We are able to regularly invest in our Clubhouse and facilities, making the Island an increasingly delightful place to visit.

Lower operating costs also help control dues.

As you explore our web site you will learn about the amenities our Clubhouse and Island offer and the many thoughtfully-planned activities and events our members sponsor.

We invite you to then review our initiation fees and dues’ structure (Join Us).

We think you’ll agree…..NCYC is an Island Treasure.
