Classic Boat Regatta



Stay tuned for more information as we prepare for the return of the BLYC Antique & Classic Boat Regatta this year in our newly rebuilt docking basin on Watkins Island!

Started as the Classic & Wooden Boat Show in 1981 – BLYC’s 75th Anniversary Year – this annual event originally was for Buckeye Lake area wooden boats only.  The first event was chaired by P/C Ed Metzgar.  It has grown and expanded over the years and has attracted wooden & classic boat enthusiasts from all over the midwest and as far away as New York State.   This in-water boat show is a highlight of the summer season at BLYC and one of the few times each year that the Club is open to the public.
