Membership Application

The Port of Friendship is what Kenosha is all about. We like to think that those who have visited or joined the Kenosha Yacht Club have helped to spread that title.

We are a family orientated club, offering many activities for both Power and Sail enthusiasts. We remain active throughout the year with monthly membership meetings and activities.
