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

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.
