Sidney North Saanich Yacht Club

sidney and north saanich yacht club

Sidney North Saanich Yacht Club was founded in 1981 by a group of individuals interested in boating. From the outset it was designed to be an affordable and accessible club serving both the powerboat and sail boat communities. Currently, the club has about 600 members and a very active and evolving Junior Program. The distinctive and well-appointed clubhouse, converted from an old family home, is located on the west shore of Tsehum Harbour in a park-like setting of lawns, gardens, and trees.

The club operates a reciprocal dock and a full service bar and restaurant available to members, their guests, and to members of sister yacht clubs. In addition to these amenities, a vibrant social calendar provides a wide range of activities for members – both on and off the water. Included in the on-water activities are cruises, racing, junior sailing and junior summer school programs. The junior summer school is open to the entire community and trains about 200 youths between the ages of 8 and 18 each year – over 3,000 have been trained to date. The clubhouse is the venue for a wide variety of activities including social events, speakers’ series, education programs, bridge tournaments, and various annual ceremonies. In addition, the clubhouse can be rented by members for private events such as weddings, and anniversary parties.

We’re extremely proud to be partnered with Sidney North Saanich Yacht Club and encourage all of our customers to stop by the club (located at North Saanich Marina) to see what they have to offer. For more information  visit their website.

Deb’s Day Out: All at Sea – Sailing at Sidney North Saanich Yacht Club

by Deborah Rogers – 

I’ve been out in boats before and always find myself feeling anxious about my total lack of control! So an adult beginner lesson was just what I needed to show me that you can teach an old dog new tricks, and that sailing a boat under wind is a truly exhilarating experience.

Sidney North Saanich Yacht Club (SNSYC) is hidden at the very end of Marina Way; you have to know it’s there to find it. The attractive white clubhouse was originally a private residence, but since 1981 has been the home of SNSYC with a bar, restaurant and member facilities such as a workshop and meeting rooms. It provides a social hub alongside the amenities, giving members access to reciprocal privileges at 95 other Clubs in the Pacific Northwest and an extensive range of events and activities like talks, parties and games nights. There’s also a racing program, two annual regattas and a very popular cruising section.

Crucially, SNSYC has a dock at the marina where they house a small fleet of club boats ranging in size from small dinghies that the junior sailing programs use, to two 25-foot keelboats – one set up for racing and the other for day or weekend sailing. Members have access to these boats once they are qualified to sail. And to sailing instructors, which is where I come into the story.

I was fortunate to be in the good hands of Thomas Bennett, who has extensive experience sailing and racing. He’s only 18, but exuded the confidence of someone much older, putting me at ease that I wasn’t going to end up in the water! Thomas had a junior volunteer – Hugh – with him too, so as we got the Martin 242 ready to leave the dock there wasn’t too much for me to do.

Once outside the harbour’s safe waters we got the sails up, and then things got interesting. There was a whole lot of hauling and fastening and (alarming) flapping as the mainsail was set and I was talked through the principals of wind moving over the sheet and how to make all the small adjustments that add up to big efficiencies of movement. With even just a moderate wind, we were soon making brisk progress towards Sidney Spit. Let’s not kid ourselves: safe sailing requires more than a few hours of instruction, but I was able to participate as we performed some tacks. With guidance I controlled the jib, pulling and releasing ropes as we changed direction. Thomas tested my resolve by taking us into quite a heel at one point – that’s where I found myself on the interesting edge between excited and scared, with the wind whipping my hair and the water surprisingly close to the cockpit’s lip.

As is often the way, the wind died down, and we made slow progress getting back to the marina. It was time to relax into the feel of being on the water: listen to the gentle sounds of wave and wind and birds, and admire some of the other boats out there. I was exhausted after my lesson, even though I felt I hadn’t done much myself. The fresh air, adrenaline and concentration had affected me. I think sailing has to become an instinct, like driving a car: you wouldn’t expect to be able to do that with just one lesson, but I enjoyed the experience and can imagine the pleasure of mastering the skill, using the elements to move rather than an engine.

I can also imagine myself taking to the yacht club lifestyle! It is extraordinarily beautiful to sit in the clubhouse (once cleaned up from a day on the water) and take in the view over a drink. With a new chef, Robert Mountfort, at the helm, the SNSYC restaurant is a great place to eat. Trained under Chef Pierre at the Deep Cove Chalet, Rob has brought a classic French cuisine to the club with an Asian twist and lots of fresh seafood and seasonal ingredients. The setting, the food and the friendly staff combined to create a very special experience: the crème caramel that I finished with took me right back to childhood trips to France and stood out in a meal full of standout dishes. It was a magical finish to a day that started so anxiously.

Great place for your kids to learn to sail during the summer school holidays.

Familiar..friendly..just became members looking forward to clean free from covid to enjoy adventures with new friends..

We had our wedding at the yacht club and we could not be happier. Brian Taylor was absolutely amazing to deal with. He is professional, organized and his hard work helped so much with our special day. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful our venue was and how amazing the food was also. Rico is such a fabulous chef! Even creating and paying with recipes for those with food sensitivities. Our experience was truly fantastic and would highly recommend the yacht club and it’s staff! Thank you !

Excelent service!!! Wonderful spot!

Stunning views. Went for a wedding & it was picture perfect day. I would suggest however bringing in a cater you love. I didn't enjoy the tacos & potato salad at such an event. I was expecting a nice sit down dinner not buffet style picnic foods.
