Gabriola Island, B.C.



The Silva Bay Yacht Club (SBYC) is a social club with the goals of promoting safe boating and good fellowship among our members and the greater boating community of British Columbia.

It all started around 1977 when a group of boat owners on Gabriola Island got together for a "Once Around the Flat Tops" race. It was so much fun they decided to form a yacht club. From the 50 initial charter members the club has grown to its present-day membership of 110+.

The SBYC objectives are:

  • to stimulate a greater interest in boating;
  • to develop a fraternal spirit among other boating enthusiasts;
  • to provide a medium for the exchange of boating information and to do all other things which will further interest in boating generally.

This website is a portal for existing and potential members to view our activities and planned cruises; our past events; our reciprocal moorages with other yacht clubs and many links to help plan the perfect cruise.
