The Royal Vancouver Yacht Club is one of the world's premier yacht clubs and one of the finest in Vancouver. Our mission is to promote yachting, seamanship and fellowship among current members and those who share our values of tradition, sportsmanship, and community service, among many others.
RVYC offers seven exclusive Offshore Stations in the Strait of Georgia and Indian Arm and two home ports right in Vancouver. Our Clubhouse on Jericho Beach has an unbeatable view of English Bay and the North Shore Mountains from two restaurants and serves as the perfect venue for family and corporate celebrations as well as a place to hold meetings or work in private.
Both home ports boast safe, clean and environmentally friendly facilities, and at Jericho we host world-class local, international and charity regattas.

Please contact Victoria Radbourne at firstname.lastname@example.org to book a tour at the clubhouse and to learn about the extensive list of benefits of membership at RVYC.
Request for Membership Application Form
Below is more detailed information about those benefits, including the Request for a Membership Application for adults, the Junior Division Application, and information on each of the Offshore Stations.
This document contains the entrance fee for membership and monthly dues, and is the document a member would complete to start the process. The applicant may complete the majority of the information as long as the proposer and the seconder provide their member numbers on the second page. Please note that once we have the application in, we will contact the proposer or seconder with the interview schedule. The proposer or seconder must attend an interview with the prospective member, which will take place at the clubhouse with two of the Executive Committee members. The process is approximately 2.5 to 3.5 months depending on the interview date.
Prospective members who have a spouse and would like their spouse to have privileges at the club should join as a Joint member with their spouse. In that case, the spouse is asked to attend the interview as well.
Prospective members who do not yet know any members of the Club are invited to contact Victoria at email@example.com to discuss introductions.
Junior Division Application Form
The process is shorter than it is for adults with the junior becoming a member on the first day of the month following their interview. Information and registration for the Junior Training Program can be found here.
