Comox VAlley Yacht Club

Yacht Club holding event to honour founders and celebrate club’s history

April 25 at the Comox Community Centre

The Comox Valley Yacht Club is holding a Celebration of Members Past and Present on Saturday, April 25 at the Comox Community Centre. The purpose of the event is to honour the founding members and celebrate the history of CVYC. All past and present members of the club are invited to attend  and to bring their friends.

The evening will include a cold buffet dinner followed by a celebration of the club’s history.

CVYC is a non-profit society that was formed in 1999 to  bring together families of boaters  who enjoy  cruising the local waters and the camaraderie that goes along with having similar interests. CVYC members enjoy boating education, sharing information, socializing, cruising, and marine related stewardship.

CVYC is a steward of Tree Island and CVYC members do an annual clean-up of the island as well as act as park hosts throughout the summer cleaning the washrooms, reporting fires, and providing information and hospitality to fellow boaters.

They call themselves “The Blue Jeans Yacht Club” because it is a very informal club and that is what many of them wear.  Club members have power or sailboats that range in size, age, and sea capability and some do not even have boats at all.  CVYC welcomes new members who share  an interest in boating.

Tickets and more information about the Celebration of Members Past and Present are available at http://www.comoxvalleyyachtclub.com/members-celebration.  For more information about the Comox Valley Yacht Club or if you have questions about this event, please send an email to memberships@comoxvalleyyachtclub.com or call Sue at 250-898-8333.
