The Associated Yacht Clubs were formed in 1925, when a consortium of 5
yacht clubs in the Toledo, Ohio, area decided to pool efforts for better boating
interaction. On filing incorporation papers with the State of Ohio, the full name of the
organization was established as Associated Yacht Clubs of Toledo.
In development of Bylaws, a provision for adding clubs was enabled. This allowed for
clubs meeting the expressed criteria to join the AYC. Investigators verify applications,
and recommend new club disposition accordingly.
AYC is very active in the western basin of Lake Erie, and promotes interaction among
it's 32 member clubs.
While all our clubs are very friendly, we recommend you
call ahead to be sure your affiliation is recognized, to secure dockage, or to participate
in events. See our "AYC Clubs, Links, and Commodores" for contact information.
