Deep Cove Yacht ClubThe Deep Cove Yacht Club is a family and community minded club with a shared love of boating and water activities. Whether you’re new to the area, thinking about getting into boating or you’re a seasoned mariner, there’s something for everyone at DCYC.

The yacht club is located in beautiful Deep Cove between Panorama Park and the village of Deep Cove.

Club members enjoy a mutual interest in boating, sailing and the wonders and beauty of Indian Arm. From the Deep Cove club house to the outstation at the head of Indian Arm they are provided with some of best boating and scenic views of the Pacific Northwest.

Deep Cove

The clubhouse with its large windows looking out to Deep Cove's mountain and sea vistas make for an inviting setting for any business or social function. Situated on a slope overlooking the Cove waters, the clubhouse's open plan design makes it a flexible space for any type of event.

Deep Cove 2When you enter the Deep Cove Yacht Club clubhouse you notice that the display cases are filled with trophies. These trophies represent the long tradition of sailboat racing at DCYC. Over the years the club has produced many top-notch sailors. Even though some of the faces have changed, the rich racing/sailing tradition at DCYC continues on to this day. On any Sunday you will see the docks spilling over with crews getting the boats ready to race. You'll find keelboat racing series, dingy sailing for juniors and major events such as the (Vancouver Area Racing Circuit) Martin Marine Deep Cove Regatta that DCYC will be hosting again this year in September. We have events to attract the serious sailboat racers and for the more casual sailors we have the Deep Cove Rally which is held in June.

Sailboat racing truly encompasses the great heritage and community spirit of DCYC. They welcome participation from the community and other clubs such as the Centennial Sailing Club. Members and non-members have made the racing program a huge success. To find out more about the sailboat racing program, please contact Fleet Captain Tony Gill or check out the notices in the racing section of the bulletin board downstairs at the clubhouse.

Hanse 418By Katherine Stone

Optimized sailing performance and comfortable living – a sweet ride

The expression that came to mind immediately was “Sweet Ride” – and I wasn’t referring to the latest ride at the CNE, a chairlift, or a new Mercedes – it was the new Hanse 418, as it cleanly cut through the water in a gusty 15-20 knot breeze averaging 6-8 knots on Lake Ontario. She was easy to steer and manoeuver even in the big gusts. The extra length over the 388 has made a big difference, with German architects Judel/Vrolijk focusing on updates to the deck layout, cockpit and stern.

ChemainusBy Marianne Scott

The approach to the Chemainus Municipal Dock from Stuart Channel is straightforward and is protected from all but strong northerly winds. The only obstacle may be some large log booms often anchored in the harbour. The Dock is immediately south of the B.C. ferry terminal; the ferry runs to Thetis- and Penelakut Islands.

Harbourmaster Harmen Bootsma, who has been the cheerful, welcoming presence here for a couple of decades, is ready to catch your lines.

WinterizationBy Andrew McDonald, Lakeside Marine Services

“They don’t make ‘em like they used to”, is a phrase that many of us are familiar with. Most of the time it is in reference to a bygone era of better, and it’s used to lament the sorry state of what we have today. It is a phrase that can be applied to many areas of our lives: architecture, art, furniture, tools. Boats? I would argue that they don’t make them like they used to. But, is that lamentable, or is it progress?

Progress, I think. With this concept in mind, as we enter another season of putting boats to bed for the winter, why do we winterize as we always have?
