Welcome to the Inner Harbor Yacht Club!
The Inner Harbor Yacht Club was founded on an especially beautiful day in September of 1963 in Tonawanda,
New York. Twenty-one boat owners were socializing together when they decided to drop a dollar each into a hat and start a
yacht club. Inner Harbor was built from the ground up with the membership doing most of their own work: this process still
holds true to this day. The Women's Auxiliary was also formed in 1963 and has become a working partner in support of the club.
Along the way Inner Harbor highlights have included the first area Musical Cruise, and the first
wedding held on the Niagara River. Beginning in 1976 Fish Fry's have been served each first Friday of the month and have since
become a culinary tradition among many area boaters. The annual Boat Blessing and Pancake Breakfast are held in June.
The Inner Harbor Yacht Club is indeed the "Working
Man's Club." Members assist in launching their boats as well as cleaning and caring for grounds and the clubhouse. There
are numerous Calendar events that are chaired by members for members.
