Lighthouse ​Web Cam:

Port Dover Power and Sail Squadron have installed a web cam looking toward Potahawk from the end of the pier at Port Dover. Excellent tool to check out the weather on the bay. Click Port Dover Power and Sail Squadron. Select "WEATHER/WEBCAM" on the top right corner of their home page to view.

The board and I look forward to an exciting year of boating, events, and camaraderie in 2024.



Wishing you all a great boating season. See you on the water!


Fair Winds,

Inter-Lake Yachting Association (ILYA)


Nearly all private yacht clubs around the lakes require visitors to be members of a reciprocal club. Long Point Bay Yacht Club is a member of the Inter Lakes Yachting Association (ILYA) which is an association of dozens of the Yacht Clubs situated around the Great Lakes. This allows our members to enjoy the hospitality of the member clubs on a reciprocal basis.
