Past Event


Thank you for attending AYC Annual Commodore’s Ball on Saturday, Feb 5th at the Clinton Township. It was a great success.

History of AYC

Albatross Yacht Club was started in 1972 by a group of sailors who docked along South River Rd on the Clinton River. These sailors decided to start a paper club that would allow them to race and cruise together as a club, and enjoy the benefits of yacht club membership without much overhead expenses, and thus lower dues.
