Gulf Yacht Club Cruising Already Underway

Gulf Yacht Club

Mar 28, 2024

The Gulf Yacht Club is a small sailing club with about 80 members in the Metro Vancouver/Vancouver Island/Sunshine Coast area. We have a very active membership and a busy cruising schedule.

Our club is very casual, and members are always willing to help each other with any questions or hands-on assistance. Our cruises and rendezvous gatherings are well attended with lots of good eats, camaraderie and some fun and games. Most gatherings are on weekends, but the extended cruises tend to be weeks long. Members are invited to join all or part of these cruises. We welcome non members to join the fun and try us out. Check us out and see our cruising schedule here

Power boats?

The Gulf Yacht Club is for sailors, however, if you have been a member for five years the constitution allows the member to transition to a power boat and maintain membership. This protocol seems to be working well and all members are sailors or former sailors. 

With no real property or moorage our member fees are low and currently we are seeking new members. It’s safer and more fun to sail with friends!

Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
