Commodore's Corner (updated Dec 12, 2018)

PLEASE VOLUNTEER.

We are scheduling another work be for Saturday, December  15.  A number of boats and other equipment still needs to be relocated from the east side of pour storage yard, and the demolition crew has already begun removing steel sheeting from the coal handling equipment on that side of the storage yard.  It is imperative we get these items relocated.  Work will begin no later than 9 AM.  Your help is needed.  The weather projection is for 40 degrees and partly sunny.

PLEASE VOLUNTEER.

Thank you

The members of the Edison Boat Club are proud of our club’s beautiful facilities located on the picturesque gateway to the river. Our clubhouse and marina are maintained by both the members and our professional staff.

The EBC was founded in 1914 and started out as a men's sailing club with one finger of docks and a small storage building. The Club is one of the oldest boat clubs on the Detroit River. We are located on Lycaste, at the foot of Detroit Edison's Conner Creek Power Plant, minutes away from Lake St. Clair, downtown Detroit and Belle Isle. Today, we boast two riverside buildings, a 110 slip marina, sailing instruction, and year round entertainment.

The EBC offers a large variety of year round family entertainment for boat owners and non-boat owners alike. Enjoy affordable family dining with a world-class view of the Detroit River from our restaurant and bar.
