The Wilmette Harbor Club, located north of Chicago on Lake Michigan, includes a clubhouse with both indoor and outdoor dining, a gas dock, and mooring for several hundred boats. Since 1929 the Wilmette harbor's Sheridan Shore Yacht Club has hosted sailboat fleet racing during the summer months. Wilmette harbor is also home to the Sheridan Shore Sailing School for both adults and children.

New "C Line" floating dock for mooring holders on the 'waler wall' will now enjoy a newly built floating dock in the summer of 2024! No longer will your bow slide under (and scratch the fiberglass) when the water level rises and falls due to Lake Michigan seiche activity. The new “C Line" mooring will also allow you to walk to the west end of the floating dock to hail a dinghy for a more stable pickup.
