Nanaimo Yacht Club (NYC) Sailing School is a not for profit organization that promotes competitive and recreational sailing.
NYC runs courses in dinghies and sailing yachts that cater to all ages. Our Sail Canada and International Yacht Training certified sailing school is active throughout the spring, summer and fall. April through November we provide internationally recognised sailing certifications, junior race teams, kayaking and paddle board trips.
All are supported by Sail Canada and International Yacht Training certified coaching staff.
NYC junior members can use our fleet of Club owned Optimist and 420 dinghies, kayaks and stand up paddleboards which are stored on the docks with direct access to Nanaimo Harbour.
