Burnt Store Isles Boat Club
Punta Gorda Florida

BSIBC began in 1989 with 52 Charter Members, as a boating club for residents of Burnt Store Isles, in Punta Gorda, FL.  BSIBC promotes safe boating, furthering our boating and marine education, supporting our law enforcement agencies, protecting our marine environment and enjoying good fellowship among the boating and non-boating members of Burnt Store Isles, Fl.






“Fun Aplenty in 2020” is this year’s Burnt Store Isles Boat Club slogan. It spotlights the primary purpose of the Club since its inception in 1989—having fun and fostering fellowship through boating-related activities.


Thirty-one consecutive years is a long time, particularly for an all-volunteer boating and social organization made up of neighbors like us. In our wake we have all made many new friendships and deepened others. We have shared good times together on the water and ashore, and it is your Club’s goal to continue that experience and long tradition.


Get involved. Having fun requires some work--not a great deal--but some. To continue our success into the future our Club needs members willing to ascend the gangway and contribute some of their time in running the Club. Pipe yourself aboard, you’ll find it entertaining.


Remember, those of you without boats have no excuse. We encourage you to hitch a ride with those who do. Tell the Cruise Director and they’ll fix you up.


Please spend some moments reviewing your new Member Directory. There is information on your Club’s history, organization, by-laws, a membership roster and list of club boats.


Be sure to check your personal e-mail for the Club’s “Weekly Update,” which highlights current information about our cruising and social activities. Also check your club’s website, BSIBC.com, for links to information of interest to boaters and piscatores.


This is your Club. With everyone’s participation we will continue our long history of having good times together.
