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 Sunday afternoon race series and host several regattas. In 2016, we hosted the 505 Canadian Championship.  The 2017 Kits Invitational Regatta was also Cal20 Canadian Championships, Lightning PNW District Championships, and 505 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.

Thursday, March 22nd dinner and March Madness – Register by 5p.m. on March 20.

Book Dinner Now

Our next winter season dinner at the club is Thursday, March 22 and what better way to mark the occasion than a KYC version of March Madness!  The Independent newspaper, from the U.K., says, “March Madness is not a basketball tournament. It is an event boarding on phenomenon.”  No basketball for us but we can have a phenomenal amount of fun as March has so much to celebrate; more daylight, St. Patrick’s Day, the arrival of Spring at 9:15a.m. on March 20th and much, much more.


Please come to the club on the 22nd and join in the celebration of all things March.  Wear as much green as you can (there might be a contest); bring your quiz solving skills (there might be a quiz), think about KYC stories (we might try our hand at writing a KYC story) .


Nelly’s Catering will prepare a delicious dinner to get us in the St. Patrick’s Day mood

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.
