Kitsilano Yacht Club was founded in the summer of 1934 to foster amateur yachting on English Bay in Vancouver and encourage competition at the highest level. The club has been operating continuously since that date from its location near Kits pool, and is home to many active one-design sailing fleets, including the Star, 5o5, Martin 242, Lightning, and Cal 20.
Kitsilano Yacht Club is also the home of outrigger canoe and SUP racing teams. Events happen frequently at Kitsilano Yacht Club, and range from weekly evening races to annual regattas that bring an international fleet.
Come and join in the racing and become a better sailor in a community of sailors! If you haven't raced before and are a bit nervous, join our Learn to Race program. This is currently on hold due to PHO regulations. Feel free to let us know you are interested, and we will contact you once we can run this program.
