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.

Sheridan Shore Yacht Club Race Weekend is on!  Friday, July 31 through Sunday, August 2nd . . .

Sheridan Shore Yacht Club and Wilmette Harbor Club have decided to proceed with racing this year, but sadly minus the beer truck, Friday night dinners, and the Harbor Fest party. The Buccaneer Bar will be open following racing, but the club must insist on members following good social distancing practices. Individual fleets can host their own gathering on club grounds.
