Welcome to the International Yacht Club of British Columbia

The International Yacht Club was launched in January of 1958. A group of interested boaters from Washington State and the Province of British Columbia successfully lobbied the Port Commission to provide moorage for pleasure boats in Blaine Harbor.

The International Yacht Club was involved, along with a large group of boating clubs, in the purchase of Sucia Island. This ensured preservation as a State Park. More recently, the Yacht club provided the funds to construct the picnic shelter at Fossil Bay on Sucia.

The International Yacht Club was based in Blaine until 1986 at which time it was transferred to White Rock to become the International Yacht Club of British Columbia, but still better known as IYC.

The Club’s goal is for like minded boating enthusiasts to enjoy our exceptional marine environment.

The IYC has an active racing program in Semiahmoo Bay, organized Cruises to various locations in the San Juan and Gulf Islands, dinner meetings and BBQs.

If you are interested in joining our Club or want more details, feel free to email or contact any one on the “Contact” page.

SAILING IS LIKE FLIRTING WITH LIFE… THE FEELING THAT THE WIND IS DRIVING YOU ALONG… THE FEELING OF ACHIEVEMENT WHEN YOU GET OFF THE WATER AFTER THE WIND’S BEEN BLOWING A NEAR GALE, THE FEELING OF ACHIEVEMENT FOR MAKING A BOAT BE ABLE TO GO WHEN THERE IS ALMOST NO WIND! I LOVE THE WAY THE WIND FILLS THE SAIL AND THE BOAT LISTS TO THE SIDE AND THE BOW CUTS THROUGH THE WATER. WHEN I'M SAILING, I'M WORKING WITH NATURE. I BECOME PART OF CREATION… FAIR WINDS!!! ALBERT FONT, VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA.
