    Hosting this family-friendly weekend is the Cowhill Yacht Club – The Little Club with a Big Heart. It is a silly name for a band of locals who have one common goal…To help the less fortunate in the Saugatuck/Douglas area communities. All proceeds will be used to help individuals and families who are in need with nowhere to turn. For more information please visit to learn more about this unique 501c organization.
