Nautical Library

The Nautical Library was set up as a service to members to enjoy books by yachters for yachters across a wide array of subject matter. The Library is located on the Parkade Level, in the corridor leading to the lift. A comfortable chair donated by the WRVYC is always ready to offer a place for members to peruse a selection or two.
