About The Bark Shanty Sail Club
Welcome to the Bark Shanty Sail Club on the Web! Bark Shanty Sail Club (BSSC), located in Port Sanilac , MI, was founded in 1972 by a handful of dedicated sailors. The initial members were all locals of the Port Sanilac area, but today’s member base spans all of Central and Lower Michigan. Over the years, we have grown to provide a full range of sailing and boating activites including a full racing program, an active cruising group, social activities, as well as a group of avid fisherman. A great harbor with easy access to Lake Huron within a reasonable drive from the Detroit and Flint area are key attractions of the club.
Throughout the years, BSSC’s purpose has remained true to the founder’s intent: to foster friendship among sailors and promote participation and interest in the sport of sailing and boating. The relaxed, family-oriented nature of BSSC goes a long way in furthering these goals.
BSSC is always excited to welcome new members. The membership section of the site contains lots of information for newcomers who might be thinking of joining a sail club or just want to know more about sailing on beautiful Lake Huron.
