History Committee

Royal Vancouver Yacht Club’s History Committee is a small group of volunteers dedicated to preserving the heritage of our Club. A major part of the collection can be seen on the walls of the Jericho Clubhouse, the Mermaid Inn and our outstations. Photos, paintings, ship models, half models and marine artifacts such as the very rare folio page of our coast as surveyed by Captain Vancouver, enhance the beauty of our Club’s main station and outstations. Most of the collection has been donated by Club members.

Much of this material has now become available to members. We have digitised in excess of 1,000 photos and some of these even date back to the early 1900s. We are working on making them searchable on this website as well.

We also produce articles for the Seabreeze that (we hope) will be of interest to members. In addition, we have an extensive library (located on the parking level) that is available to members and is searchable on the website.
