Because of orders from the Michigan Governor concerning the outbreak of the COVID-19 Virus, the Club’s Annual Meeting will be postponed until further notice. The situation is fluid and, therefore, the date is unable to be determined at this time.
Note: The Governor’s Executive Order has lifted the ban on boating and so the club will slowly reevaluate how best to protect our fellow boaters in these unusual times. The use of the club and its facilities will be left to the judgement of our members. SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES MUST BE FOLLOWED BASED ON THE GUIDELINES OF BOTH STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS.
For the time being the following is our status:
- Our gates will be accessible at this time, unless ordered to lock them.
- Boats can be docked and accessed at this time.
- All bathrooms are open (Limit to 2 people at a time please).
- Community room and laundry rooms will remain closed for now. Opening dates TBD.
- The power is on.
- The water is on.
- Limit groups to the current state and federal guidelines when at the marina.
- Please respect social distancing standards.
- Wear masks around people in public areas as much as possible.
If it is determined that people are not adhering to these official orders, we will lock down all gates.
We will do our best to keep you updated as the situation changes. Please stay home and stay safe.
SSYC, Board of Directors
Whether you are mooring a boat or just visiting us, we hope you enjoy this beautiful and scenic facility and the area’s many attractions. SSYC is a family oriented club and the Board of Directors works to maintain our facility to the highest standards for your safety and enjoyment. SSYC is a condominium-based association with 186 slips of varying sizes. Many shareholders rent out their slips, so ownership is not necessary to take advantage of the facilities, which include dockside power and water, holding tank pump-out equipment, picnic tables, BBQ grills, bathrooms, showers, laundry facilities, a community room and lots of friendly fellow-boaters.
Throughout the season our members and renters plan various club events like fish cookouts, wine & cheese tastings, theme parties and many others that add to the excitement. Stop here at our website and check our Activities & Special Dates area for the latest details.
SSYC has a state-of-the-art, Wi-Fi system by Tricon Services Marine Wi-Fi. Want to access your key business and recreational websites or stream your favorite movies, no problem. This system has a strong signal and a fast band width to better serve our membership.
Please see the Slips for Sale or Rent section on this website for more details regarding who to contact to rent a slip or maybe join the SSYC family by purchasing a share.
Located at the entrance to the Saginaw Bay, you are just minutes away from a relaxing day on the water. On the bay you can fish, swim, water ski, anchor out for lunch, go for a cruise under the moonlit stars, or cruise up the river to Bay City.
SSYC is just minutes from the Saginaw Bay
Situated on both sides of the Saginaw River are two business districts and community parks. You will find restaurants, art fairs, side walk sales, concerts in the park, baseball tournaments, boat shows and one of the largest fireworks displays in the great state of Michigan on July 4th weekend. The Bay City Area Chamber of Commerce has a web site listing the community’s summer activities.
The Bay City Yacht Club has very active racing activities and welcomes all to race with them. Interested in sailing? This is the place to be.
The United States Coast Guard station is located on the river and watches out for our safety.
The Saginaw Valley Naval Ship Museum is just a short distance up the Saginaw River and the home of the USS Edson. A top gun ship that earned the nickname, “The Destroyer.”
As you can see, the Saginaw Bay area offers a variety of things to do so come join us for a fun and safe summer.
May you have safe passages and fair winds.
