Spring has sprung and it's time to get ready for boating adventures. So, if you are keen to start things off, be certain to attend the open house this weekend.
We'll have club members, instructors staff and a few vessel owners on hand to help you navigate your very own path to the water. Whether you're interested in the lessons, club programs, or charter vessels... we've got power and sail, monohulls and multihulls on site to check out.
Boat rides are available to those who book in advance - a few spaces remain:
BEAUTIFUL weather at the VANCOUVER BOAT SHOW for 2014 ~
we are partnered with DISCOVER BOATING to do short demonstration rides on small power boats & sailboats ~ here's club member KAY enjoying a quick 40 knot ride on the GLACIER BAY catamaran ~ can't wipe the smile off his face
the sailors are having a great time as well
a host of boat show specials on sailing & power courses, charters & club memberships
you can also drop by our booth at BC PLACE & try your hand at similated CATAMARAN handling!
