In addition to its primary mission to restore and preserve the historic clubhouse of the Detroit Yacht Club, the DYC Foundation also provides educational opportunities for the public to visit and learn about this unique and architecturally significant structure on Belle Isle. Several free tours typically are offered on scheduled dates each year. Tour availability is publicized in various media, and reservations are made using Eventbrite.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic’s social distancing and other restrictions, the significant infection rate in Southeastern Michigan, and associated effects on clubhouse operations, no tours are currently scheduled for 2020. Should these circumstances change later in the year so that tours can be safely offered, we will announce a limited schedule. Otherwise, we plan to resume our public tour program in 2021.
The photos below provide some representative interior and exterior views of our 1922 clubhouse.
