Club Boat Open House: August 5th, 10 am – 4 pm

Club boat members will be delighted to introduce you to our program and to our three sailboats! Drop by Gibsons Marina and get an up-close-and-personal look at how you can experience all the delights our marine paradise offers.

For boaters who don’t own one, our club boats are a great way to enjoy the local waters. Access one of three sailboats throughout the year, meet a cohort of like-minded sailors and learn from those who have extensive knowledge of navigation and boating safety. We can also recommend experts who can help tune up your sailing skills.

The GYC Club Boat program is a great way to dip your toes in the water owning a boat. Spoiler alert: many club boat participants go on to buy their own boat!

Want to sail? Join the club!

Gibsons Yacht club owns three sailboats moored at Gibsons Marina available for use by GYC members who take out a club boat membership (details below). This is an affordable way to have fun on the water and gain sailing knowledge.

As a club boat member, you get use of the sailboats for a full year. No moorage costs, no insurance costs, no power costs, no maintenance costs. No extra charge for the fellowship and fun. Club members work together to ready the boats and learn from each other.

Meet the Fleet!

Our full-sized cruiser sailboats are well-equipped and maintained and perfect for day sailing, and overnight trip, or a week away.
