The Sheboygan Yacht Club is situated in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, with Lake Michigan as its home waters. The first try at establishing a yacht club in Sheboygan stems from 1887, but by 1916 it has quietly disappeared.

In 1931 a new yacht club was formed, from Depression Times acquisitions. This time the yachting hobby stayed around, and over time it came to include not only the first three yachts needing an anchorage, but also place for over 50 others yacht. Sea Scouts found a home their, as did a youth sailing club, and now even a U.S. Sailing Center. Through all this, and through being a welcoming place to be, the club also regularly welcomed national events.

I have not found anything about the club's burgee. It is there, though I had to be moved over to Team One, Newport, to find an example image. Nothing is said about it, though. An easy guess would state that 'S' is for 'Sheboygan'. What the barrulet stands for, on the other hand, I have no idea.

Other than that, the club uses the common flags for Commodore, 'Vice Commodore', Rear Commodore, Treasurer, and Secretaries.
