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

We run a Thursday night and a Sunday afternoon race series and host several regattas.  This year, we hosted the Squamish 2016 5O5 Canadian Championships.

On Thursday Nights our members enjoy hot meals in the clubhouse after racing.  All members and their guests are welcome by reservation.

UBC SailBot


Every year more than 60 students from the University of British Columbia come together to design and build a fully autonomous sailboat, a Sailbot.

Their motivation is neither class credit nor financial gain; they are simply passionate about complex programming, advanced electronics and sailing.

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.
