The Canyon Lake Property Owners Association Board of Directors honored Yacht Club Commodore Ron Wilbur as Member of the Month.

Wilbur was recognized for his contributions to the Yacht Club. Under his leadership, the Yacht Club saw a 645 percent surge in membership in 2023, which now includes more than 400 residents.

Wilbur’s impactful tenure included organizing three clinics and orchestrating 16 community events along with 23 exclusive gatherings for Yacht Club members, solidifying the club’s integral role in fostering camaraderie and engagement.

The club’s philanthropy efforts in 2023 included awarding $1,500 scholarships to two Canyon Lake students, raising funds for Maui Wildfire Relief, and sponsoring disadvantaged local high school seniors for Grad Night.

The Yacht Club was also granted 501(c)3 nonprofit status from the State of California and the IRS and joined the Yachting Club of America in 2023. The club also initiated a membership application for the Southern California Yachting Association and expects to be admitted as members next month.

“I want to thank the POA for this wonderful honor. No one can accomplish this much by themselves. I want to thank the Yacht Club Board for all their hard work and for helping me to achieve these great accomplishments for the club.”

Wilbur served as vice commodore in 2020 and commodore in 2023. This month, Wilbur will turn the reins over to Rob Mora, who will lead the club through the 2024 season. “I will be there to assist Rob and the board as needed,” Wilbur said.

Formed in 1990, the Yacht Club is comprised of residents of all ages and all interests. Boat ownership is not required to be a member. Annual membership is $15. For more information, visit
