Etobicoke Yacht Club, situated in beautiful Humber Bay Park West, started as the Etobicoke Power and Sail Club (EP&SC) in 1966 with the commitment to create a better experience for boaters. Over 50 years later, that commitment continues. In 1977, the club relocated from the mouth of Etobicoke Creek at Marie Curtis Park to Humber Bay Park West. Humber Bay Park East / West had been created from tonnes of landfill excavated from the massive Toronto Eaton Centre development, with the West park design including a sheltered harbour for EP&SC and Mimico Cruising Club.

The new docks arrived in 1979 and in 1980 the club was renamed Etobicoke Yacht Club, complete with a striking new burgee. The first mast crane was erected in 1981 and 1982/83 saw the club transform dramatically thru an impressive member-driven landscaping program where topsoil, grass and trees were planted. Power and water were installed on the main docks, a cement launch ramp was poured and a new 2-tonne crane was installed. The clubhouse construction began in 1984 and was opened in 1985. A “friendship gate” between EYC and Mimico Cruising Club was installed to much fanfare and still stands today as a testament to our great relationship.

By the second half of the 1980s, the hard physical work of club building was bearing fruit. The clubhouse was bustling with member activities; EYC’s harbour had grown to accommodate 300 boats, many of them larger than what the founding members could ever have dreamed of. The club, noted Commodore Rick Bryant in 1986, was entering its “maturing phase.” Today, EYC continues to evolve with ongoing investment in docks, facilities and services delivering on that 1966 commitment to create a better experience for boaters.
