||The Whitefish Chain Yacht Club (WCYC) is one of the oldest community service organizations in the area - established in 1952 as a non-profit organization focused on serving the residents of the Whitefish Chain.
The WCYC’s mission is to promote boating and water safety for both lake residents and visitors to our beautiful chain of lakes. The Whitefish Chain Yacht Club conducts three important programs; Navigation Buoys, Boating Safety Instruction and Swimming Lessons.
Navigation Buoys: Our principal responsibility is to provide and maintain the navigational buoys under direction of the Crow Wing County Sheriffxs Dept. The County designates the placement of the navigational and no-wake buoys. The WCYC spends several thousand dollars each year on this program. Many of the buoys have solar and battery powered lights to aid in navigation after dark.
The WCYC is also a social organization offering member activities such as family picnics, boating, dinners and more to promote fellowship amongst our community.
Members enjoy reciprocity with other Yacht clubs through membership in the Yachting Clubs of America. More information here.
