Kitsilano Yacht Club
Vancouver's Neighbourhood Yacht Club since 1934

Kitsilano Yacht Club


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 is home to many active one-design sailing fleets, including the Star, 505, Martin 242, Melges 24, Lightning and Cal 20 and outrigger canoe and SUP racing teams. 

We run a Thursday night and a Sunday afternoon race series and host several regattas.  In 2013, we hosted  the International 505 Pacific Coast Championships.

On Thursday Nights our caterers serve excellent hot meals in the clubhouse.  All members and guests are welcome by reservation.  Please e-mail catering@kitsilanoyachtclub.com

Outrigger canoeing is a sport in which an outrigger canoe (va'a, wa'a, waka ama in Tahitian, Hawaiian, similarly in Polynesian language) is propelled by means of paddles. Outrigger canoeing has grown from its roots in Polynesia to become a very popular paddling sport, with numerous sporting and social canoe clubs established around the world.
