See how it all cam together in 2009.



   The Sun Parlour Boat Club was organized in the late 1960's by a small group of local people with a common interest in family sized outboard motor boat racing.

   Despite the fact that some of our current members were Charter Members, the exact date of the Club's beginning is uncertain. The earliest recorded meeting took place in March of 1968.

   The Club organized and sponsored its first race in September, 1969, and then held racing events each year through 1973 with the exception of 1972. All races were under the auspices of the "C.B.F." (Canadian Boating Federation). This enabled the winning drivers to accumulate points for annual championships and encouraged drivers from other areas in Ontario and Quebec to compete.

   The races were held on the Detroit River on the South side of Peche Island and used Anchor-In Harbour as the center of activities. As a consequence of this, many people who kept their boats at Anchor-In joined the Club. As more people joined, the overall enthusiasm for racing began to decrease and more effort was put into the social functions.

   As a result of the social functions, there was more inter-action with other area boat clubs and S.P.B.C. became more widely known. This, in turn, resulted in a more diversified membership. In addition to Anchor-In boaters, S.P.B.C. now has members from the Detroit area, Pike Creek, Puce River, Belle River, Tilbury, LaSalle and Amherstburg.

   Sun Parlour Boat Club is a traveling club with its 'Home' base having moved from Park Haven Marina to Holiday Harbour Marina in February of 2009.  Located in LaSalle, Ontario, Canada, we have constructed a new Club House there.  It has been a labour of love and we are all very proud of what we have accomplished so far.

   Holiday Harbour Owner and Club Member Bob Luckino has offered free, daytime dockage for all Sun Parlour daytime events and free overnight dockage for our annual Regatta and Poker Runs.  For all I-LYA/AYC members dockage is available any time to those who would like to visit this beautiful Marina and Sun Parlour Boat Club at $1.75/ft.

   We invite everyone to take advantage of this great offer and come and visit our home and enjoy all of what Holiday Harbour has to offer.  Docking arrangements for any Sun Parlour event needs to be made through the Sun Parlour Boat Club Dock Master only.  All other visits may be arranged through Holiday Harbour.
