Continuation of Thursday Night Keelboat Racing

Since Kitsilano Yacht Club's first announcement that we will be continuing the Thursday night Spring Series Keelboat races formerly operated by False Creek Yacht Club, we have learned more about the series, the skippers and its ethos and we have decided to make this series inclusive for everyone to participate. 

The series will take place from May 3rd to June 14th. 
We will publish a Notice of Race in the coming days along with a registration instructions.

Prices will be as follows:

Included in membership for KYC skippers
$105 for all 7 races paid in advance
$20 per race 

Registration is required a day in advance of each race.

See you on the water!

Thursday Night Dinner and Club One Design Racing

Book Dinner Now


Thursday, April 26th and the start of 2018 Thursday night racing and dinners! Come down to the club and help us launch the sail racing season in style as the skippers and crews head back out on the water!


The forecast for the 26th is sunny and cool and the clubhouse will be warm and welcoming.  Nelson and Ed have planned a warm, southern themed dinner for us as April is Jazz Month and dessert is in honour of National Pretzel day.


What could be better than Thursday night at Kits – sailing, paddling, a delicious dinner, a dessert that sounds out of this world, a little jazz on the stereo, and the Staff Captain’s Welcome.  Hope to see you at the club on the 26th.

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, 5O5, Martin 242, Melges 24, Lightning and Cal 20 and outrigger canoe and SUP racing teams. 

We run a Thursday night and Sunday afternoon race series and host several regattas. In 2016, we hosted the 5O5 Canadian Championship.  The 2017 Kits Invitational Regatta was also Cal20 Canadian Championships, Lightning PNW District Championships, and 5O5 Western Canadian Championships.  September 2017 saw us host the 6M Oceana Cup Regatta as part of the lead-in to the  6M World Championships held at RVYC.

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.
