Just a few yards upstream from the Thames River Lighthouse (one of the oldest on the Great Lakes), lies one of the friendliest little yacht clubs on the Great Lakes. The Thames River Yacht Club is located in the village of Lighthouse Cove, Ontario at the mouth of the Thames River near the southeast corner of Lake St. Clair.
Some TRYC History:
TRYC was incorporated on January 7, 1981 by the Province of Ontario as a not-for-profit corporation and operates as a self-help club. The club owns the yacht basin and the large grassy area to the west of the basin, cottage, picnic shelter, gin pole, washroom and shower building. The membership elects a board of directors annually and all senior members (including you!) are entitled to vote on a one vote per boat basis.
During the low water levels of 1999 / 2001 TRYC was fortunate to have the cash reserves to fund two consecutive years of dredging, this allowed boats of over 6 ft draft to continue to enjoy our yacht basin when boaters at other area marinas churned mud. We again decided in the fall of 2007 that the basin needed to dredged, which in turn again allows boaters with large drafts to enjoy our club.
Each year we manage to complete a number of projects to improve the ammenities at the club: deck on the clubhouse, gazebo, very large gin pole deck, improvements to hydro & water facilities, dinghy dock and on and on – the list is quite long and we’re proud of our achievements.
