The Manitoba Yacht Club was established in 1955, making good on a Second World War boast that “all the best sailors came from the land of the wheat fields.” The first Commodore was Gilbert M. Eaton, the son of retail merchant Timothy Eaton. The Club gained the Royal prefix in 1981, marked by Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee with a 20-boat flotilla that sailed from its clubhouse along the Red River, north of Winnipeg, to the Legislative Building on the Assiniboine River. The history of the Royal Manitoba Yacht Club is a legacy of duty to all our members — past, present and future.
The Royal Manitoba Yacht Club is a non-profit organization and continues to be focused on a love of boating and social activities that everyone can enjoy. Situated minutes from Winnipeg, we offer a unique experience to everyone that visits. Come and experience the RMYC, you'll feel at home here!
