Gulf Yacht Club Cruising Already Underway

Gulf Yacht Club

Mar 28, 2024

The Gulf Yacht Club is a small sailing club with about 80 members in the Metro Vancouver/Vancouver Island/Sunshine Coast area. We have a very active membership and a busy cruising schedule.

Our club is very casual, and members are always willing to help each other with any questions or hands-on assistance. Our cruises and rendezvous gatherings are well attended with lots of good eats, camaraderie and some fun and games. Most gatherings are on weekends, but the extended cruises tend to be weeks long. Members are invited to join all or part of these cruises. We welcome non members to join the fun and try us out. Check us out and see our cruising schedule here

Power boats?

The Gulf Yacht Club is for sailors, however, if you have been a member for five years the constitution allows the member to transition to a power boat and maintain membership. This protocol seems to be working well and all members are sailors or former sailors. 

With no real property or moorage our member fees are low and currently we are seeking new members. It’s safer and more fun to sail with friends!

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.
