Welcome to Thunderbird Yacht Club
Thunderbird Yacht Club is a small, private group of members who are passionate about boating. Located in Howe Sound, our property is located at Ekins Point on the secluded north end of Gambier Island and is comprised of 2000 feet of dock space, and extensive onshore facilities nestled in 17 acres of west coast forest. The facilities are owned and maintained by the members who take great pride in our club.
The club began with a few cruising friends who traveled together around the south coast of B.C. They referred to themselves as the "Thunderbird Yacht Club" and by 1972 they were granted a charter with a maximum of 100 members. Gradually, 17 acres at Ekins Point were acquired and the club began leasing space for outstations in several areas.
We're a friendly, active boating community and encourage all members to participate in club events. We work together at work-parties twice a year to minimize the maintenance costs of our 'home-base' at Ekins where we relax & play together the rest of the time!
