Silver Harbour Sailing Club

 

Welcome Aboard!!!


The Silver Harbour Sailing Club is located in the heart of the North American continent on the western shore of Lake Winnipeg.  Lake Winnipeg is a dominant feature of the province of Manitoba's topography and is one of Canada's three truly all Canadian "Great Lakes".  This "sea
lake" has become a magnet for keelboat sailors, providing an expanse of water for pleasant day sails or extensive cruises.

 

Members of  the Silver Harbour Sailing Club enjoy cruising Lake Winnipeg in a variety of keelboats.  Cruising has become the focal point for club activities.  Many members have  extensively explored the lake.  Each year members cruise to the reaches of Lake Winnipeg often in small flotillas. there are also several overnight sailing cruises on weekends to nearby sheltered harbours.

 

Our home base is the Silver Harbour Marine Resort. The facility has undergone many improvements in the last few years including new high quality slips for our boats, wifi, and improvements to the clubhouse. The expanse of open green space is immaculately maintained. Members enjoy a club house complete with a recently upgraded interior, showers, small library, satellite TV and a VHF station. Marina services include a boat launch, a mobile lift for boats and outdoor winter storage. Fuel and general supplies are available in the nearby community of Arnes. The three basins of the marina are protected from from the open water of Lake Winnipeg with access via a boat channel. Barbecues are provided be the sailing club for members to use. Most weekends find members enjoying potluck get togethers and campfire gatherings. You can walk and swim for kilometres along the sandy beaches at the entrance to Silver Harbour. A morning or evening stroll along these beaches is as close to a maritime experience as you will find in central Canada.

 

In addition to cruising there are organized social events throughout  the year including  golf tournaments, pot-luck theme nights and often, an annual winter banquet. The winter banquet provides an opportunity to reminisce about the previous season's experiences and plan for the upcoming season.
