Open Opportunities



The West Vancouver Yacht Club is taking applications for the upcoming 2018 sailing season.

WVYC is located in West Vancouver BC where Howe Sound meets Burrard Inlet. Sailors relish the fact that WVYC is located in an ideal sailing environment. If there is wind anywhere, it’s here ‐ it's very rare for sailing to be cancelled due to lack of wind. The Club is a leader on the North Shore and Lower Mainland in providing excellence in sailing programs for both juniors and adults. This quality and excellence is the level to which all members and staff of the West Vancouver Yacht Club aspire to maintain and improve.

All WVYC staff are experienced and trained and have taken accredited courses and a variety of other programs unique to our club. Learners enjoy quality sail instruction, a very low student‐to‐instructor ratio, and the best sailing equipment on the Lower Mainland. Our sail training programs introduce basic sailing skills, develop existing skills and improve racing performance for youth and adult sailors in a fun and safe environment. Come sail with us and experience the exhilaration of sailing, learning and understanding yachting traditions.
