toledo ice yacht clubThe exact date of the club’s founding is unclear. The most widely accepted date for founding occurred in 1919. The purpose for the club is to promote the sport of ice boating as well as provide ice boaters and opportunity to discuss the sport and find where the best ice is.

The club holds weekly meeting every Friday night at 8 pm during the winter. They start around Thanksgiving and go until the last Friday in March. They are held at Ottawa River Yacht Club in Toledo. If you are interested in learning more about ice boating come to a meeting.

The club primarily sails on Maumee Bay in Toledo, although traveling does occur if there is good ice. There are those that race and those that “cruise.” If there is good ice people will be out. Come down and ask questions.
