The club's Lightning Class fleet of sailboats, No. 54, is advertised as the largest in the world with more than 60 registered Lightnings and a lot of racing talent. It is located on Ward’s Point in Orchard Lake (off of Orchard Lake Road), providing easy access for Oakland County families. Its sandy beaches and sheltered cove lead to open water on Cass Lake providing an ideal setting for sailing (and swimming, relaxing, and picnicking). It is a working club and the diverse membership volunteer their talents to run the club.
