Covid 19 Alert;
Provincial restrictions are in place to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Club events are an important part of our culture at Thunderbird Yacht Club. Members look forward to gathering together several times throughout the season to connect with old friends and make new ones.
Led by the Entertainment Director, members volunteer to organize, decorate, cook, serve and clean up each of the themed events. These can be as simple as a member pot luck and movie night, or as elaborate as a concert and dance party with professional entertainers.
Event schedules are posted at the beginning of each year and eagerly anticipated by all members. Events include Spring and Fall Cruises, Sail Past and bi-annual work parties.
SCHEDULED EVENTS 2021

A traditional salute to the Commodore, Sailpast is a well honored event for Thunderbird yacht Club Members. The commodore invites you to attend for the day or the weekend, however, please note that there are no planned on-shore events at this time. If you are new to the club, please click on the link below to learn more about the manuevers, order of boats and dress code. If you have any additional questions regarding the day, please contact the Fleet Captain, Reg Allen.
SPRING WORK WEEKEND
We will not be holding a formal work party the spring, however, Ekins still needs a lot of love and there are many projects and tasks to complete before the season starts. There is a current job list on the website under Ekins Point. Members are reminded that they still need to complete 12 hours of volunteer time, and this is a great way to get your hours in on your time frame.
Please contact Ekins Manager and Rear Commodore, Travis Endersby at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must contact Travis prior to starting any work, and advise him of your progress and what has been completed as soon as possible.
