The Wilmette Harbor Club, located north of Chicago on Lake Michigan, includes a clubhouse with both indoor and outdoor dining, a gas dock, and mooring for several hundred boats. Since 1929 the Wilmette harbor's Sheridan Shore Yacht Club has hosted sailboat fleet racing during the summer months. Wilmette harbor is also home to the Sheridan Shore Sailing School for both adults and children.

Karen Vorreiter, Cruising Fleet Captain, took all those great racing photos in the Race Weekend 2018 Photo Gallery.  She also wrote this, enjoy!!

The rich history of Wilmette Harbor Club is captured in a pictorial history book titled Wilmette's Nautical History, prepared by a 60th Anniversary Committee in 1982 consisting of David C. Leach, Rollie B. Schmitt, and Roland D. Bautzmann.

Wilmette Harbor Club has attracted so many interesting characters over the years. Jim Tingey is certainly one of our treasures.
