Learn to Sail

The West Vancouver Yacht Club is a leader in youth and adult sail training programs in Canada. These programs are open to the public. You do not have to be a member to participate. WVYC staff are experienced, trained, and certified by the Canadian Yachting Association and offer accredited courses and a variety of other programs unique to our club.

Learners enjoy quality sail instruction, a low student-to-instructor ratio, and the best sailing equipment on the Lower Mainland. Our sail training programs introduce basic sailing skills starting as early as age 4, develop existing skills using the Sail Canada program levels, and improve racing performance for youth and adult sailors in a fun and safe environment.

In addition to offering Club sailing programs. WVYC is home to the North Shore Racing Team which provides opportunities for youth from a number of local yacht clubs for inter-club competitions.  Come sail with us and experience the exhilaration of sailing, learning and understanding yachting traditions.
