The Gimli Yacht Club Experience

Located on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, right in the heart of Gimli, the Gimli Yacht Club is home to a large flotilla of keelboats and a number of dinghies. The club offers sailing lessons for children and adults from the White Sail to Bronze Sail levels. There is club racing every Wednesday evening for keel boaters and the Prairie Ocean Racing Conference (PORC), a week-long race for keelboats in July.

The clubhouse features a huge deck with wheelchair access at both ends, a kitchen and dining room, showers, washrooms, a classroom and lockers. There is a landscaped lawn and sandy beach, plus designated docking for keelboats and dinghies, with water and electrical hook-ups. The nearby marina offers docking, pump-outs, gas and diesel sales, plus a boat launch ramp and crane, and winter storage.

Join the socializing at the annual banquet in mid-June right through to the pot luck on the September long-weekend. You'll also find a large group of keel boaters using the barbecues and kitchen on Saturday nights at the clubhouse.
