Julien Dubuque Yacht Club

Where Friendships and Camaraderie Begin!

Julien Dubuque Yacht Club

The Julien Dubuque Yacht Club (JDYC) as we know it today, was incorporated on June 28, 1960 by Calvin Schnucker. JDYC members continue to appreciate and enjoy the camaraderie the Club brings to boaters in the Tri-State area.

The Julien Dubuque Yacht Club pulls the boating community together with social parties, weekend trips, small boat/jet ski runs, back water tie-ups, and educational events. As a member you can attend events and receive area boating news. The JDYC has four official meetings and five dinner parties a year, which give members an opportunity to stay in touch even during those cold winter months. Today the JDYC welcomes any qualifying boat owner who shares the love of boating. We currently have over 100 members from Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

The Julien Dubuque Yacht Club is a great way to enjoy the Mississippi River, while meeting lifelong friends.
