Tiburon Penninsula, surrounded on three sides by the waters of San Francisco Bay, is home to three yacht clubs. Located on the east side of the peninsula, Tiburon Yacht Club is the only club outside Tiburon's downtown area, in a unique community setting that is rural, residential, informal and water-oriented. Most of the homes near the club have private deep water boat docks with Bay access.
The Tiburon Peninsula has had a colorful history dating back to early Spanish exploration and development, with Paradise Cay playing an important role. Although dredging and construction within Paradise Cay began in April, 1955, the area was originally known as California Point or Ring Point, and was eventually abandoned as a potential U.S. Navy ammunition loading base. The Club had its beginning in 1965 when a group of Yachtsmen and women under the leadership of Harold and Thelma Lind formed Paradise Yacht Club. The organization was renamed the Paradise Harbor Yacht Club and incorporated in 1967. The date of incorporation, May 17th, has been celebrated over the years as the Club Birthday.
