A fun-loving group with boats of all sizes

The Comox Valley Yacht Club holds its annual information session this Saturday.

The Comox Valley Yacht Club (CVYC) will hold its annual information session this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Comox Bay Marina site near the Harbour Air office in Comox.

Club members will be available to answer your questions. The Auxiliary Coast Guard and Power and Sail Squadron will also be present. All new registrants for CVYC will be eligible for a prize draw.

CVYC is a fun-loving group of people with boats of all sizes and descriptions. They all share a love of the water. Members can go on planned group summer cruises whether they have a power boat or sailboat.

Reciprocal moorage at other yacht clubs is a definite club benefit. Members also receive discounts at chandleries on the Island.

During the winter months there are regular educational presentations on boating-related topics, and many social events to entertain. A monthly bulletin with a calendar of events, marine information, and boating articles keeps members up to date on what’s happening.

In conjunction with BC Parks, the club is a steward of Sandy Island (Tree Island). Club members do an annual spring cleanup of the park, and act as marine park hosts during summer weekends. The club is also organizing a float in the Canada Day parade.

For more information, contact Sue at 250-898-8333 or Bonnie at 250-941-8432, e-mail memberships@comoxvalleyyachtclub.com or visit www.comoxvalleyyachtclub.com.
