BPYC 75th Logo REV

The Burnham Park Yacht Club represents more than a building, docks and grounds to serve its members, it is a connection between men and women who have worked during the last seventy-five years to honor the original Club goals identified in the September 14, 1938 papers of its incorporation. These original goals have been honored and have been broadened as expansion and changes came to the Club facilities and to Burnham Harbor.

The Burnham Park Yacht Club is situated in the newly configured Museum Campus Area of Chicago’s lakefront and is located on Northerly Island which forms the Eastern shore of Burnham Harbor, the most sheltered harbor in Chicago.


The clubhouse provides views facing the harbor offering magnificent views of the harbor activity as well as a panoramic vista of Chicago’s skyline, said to be the most exquisite view of Chicago.
