The Comox Valley Yacht Club's Annual Information Session goes May 30.

Comox Valley Yacht Club information session on May 30

The Comox Valley Yacht Club (CVYC) will hold its annual information session Saturday, May 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Comox Valley Marina site near the Harbour Air office in Comox.  This year we have been invited to be part of the Comox Valley Marina ‘Boaters Exchange Extravaganza’.

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.  We have power and sail boats in the fleet, from 17- to 51-feet and all levels of experience.

Our members are interested in exploring, learning, socializing, and sharing ‘all things boating’. Therefore, if you have a boat, love boating, and want to share or acquire information about sailing the wonderful waters that surround us, come to check us out and ask questions of the members who will be on hand.

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.

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

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.

Any potential new members are invited to attend a social event later in the day and will be eligible for a prize draw.

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