Berlin Yacht Club is a sailing club located in North Benton, Ohio, on beautiful Berlin Lake. We are a casual, family-friendly organization. Sailors from all walks of life, ages 8 to 80, participate in activities at Berlin Yacht Club. These activities include sailboat races, day sailing, cover dish dinners on Sunday after sailing, open house Discover Sailing Days, Junior Sail Camp, picnics and more. The club has been in continuous existence for over 60 years.
Sailboat races are held on Wednesday nights and Sunday afternoons. Our sailing season runs from late April though Labor Day. We meet on Wednesday nights at the launch area around 6:00 p.m. and races start on the water at 7:00 p.m. Hot dogs and other refreshments are served after Wednesday night sailing at the clubhouse. We meet on Sunday afternoons at the launch area around 1:00 p.m., and races start on the water on the water at 2:00 p.m. Members gather at the clubhouse after sailing on Sunday for a cover dish dinner and social time with the other members.
