Put-in-Bay Yacht Club History

This yacht club is one of the oldest on Lake Erie.  Originally, the club began as the Put-in-Bay Yachting Association on February 13, 1886.  The first commodore was Valentine Doller.  The main intent of forming the club was to further promote the Inter Lake Yachting Association, or ILYA.  Each summer the ILYA holds regattas for both adults and children.  So, Put-in-Bay businessmen formed the club.  Initially, meetings were at various boat houses.  Then, in 1923 the club gained their first clubhouse.  The former owner of the Bay View House, Jack J. Day, sold the current day property to the association.  Soon, the club built the first club house.  Additionally, social events flourished with the new pavilion.  Also, the club once had a large dock.  However, the rising waters and winter ice destroyed it over time. read more
