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.

Unfortunately, the Harbor will not be able to open on Saturday as planned. Governor Pritzker has extended the stay at home order and we do not have the clearance to open. We believe the incomplete or contradictory information coming from the state will slowly give way to clearer guidelines that will allow us to begin the season as soon as possible. The Harbor will be ready to open the moment that happens.

In the meantime, a limited crew of Harbor personnel continues to engage in essential maintenance which will enable the harbor to open when we receive clearance. If you must come to the Harbor, please respect the social distancing rules around employees and anyone else present. 

Thank you all for your patience during these extraordinary times.
