Bronte Harbour Yacht Club operates as a volunteer run organization including a 12 person board of directors. The club operates under a strong volunteer spirit and is consistently accountable through its Bylaws, Code of Conduct and Policies.
BHYC was founded on three fundamental principles:
1. To promote the sport and recreation of boating, including the racing, cruising and pleasure of boating out of Bronte Harbour on Lake Ontario
2. To develop seamanship, sportsmanship, and friendship within its members and community
3. To provide and maintain a clubhouse and facilities for its members by its members in a self-help manner where possible.
