Welcome to the Burnham Park Yacht Club BPYC - History Burnham Harbor had been originally built as a lagoon for the Chicago World's Fair, which was held in 1933. Large and protected, the harbor made an ideal location. In 1938, the Park District opened up Burnham Park Harbor for dingy sailing.
As a member of the YCA, the Burnham Park Yacht Club extends member reciprocity to individuals who belong to yacht clubs who are also registered members of the YCA. As a member of the Burnham Park Yacht Club, other YCA Yacht clubs will extend reciprocity membership privileges to you as you travel.
