For 30 years, the WIYC has Provided opportunities for fun and recreation as well as fundraising, for those who share in interest in boating, golfing, canoe and kayaking and more along with love of our Washington Island Community.
The WIYC is a group of individuals and families with ties to the Island who share a common appreciation for what the Island has to offer. The Club is a dynamic source for a broad range of opportunities to meet and build friendships through social and recreational activities. These typically take place from Memorial Day weekend and run through summer. Events and gatherings reflect ever-changing member interests, which include biking, hiking, kayaking, boating, water sports, picnics, golfing, dinners, and more.
For the record, owning a yacht is not a requirement to becoming a Member. In fact, few if any do. Kayaks, fishing boats, pleasure boats, and personal watercraft are more the boats of choice for those who even have boats.
We kiddingly say our motto is more like:
In addition to the vibrant social and recreational activities, the Club appreciates and finds ways to give back to the great Island community.
- The Clay Blair Memorial Foundation was established years ago to provide college scholarships to graduating seniors.
- Club Members have been a constant source of volunteers in support of Island based activities.
- All proceeds from the annual Club operated ice cream booth at the Island Fair go to local charitable organizations
The list goes on as does our desire and energy to contribute to the needs and betterment of the Island.
