2017 Boat & Watersports Show Info | Vernon Yacht Club
Vernon Yacht Club’s membership numbers are close to 400 and growing steadily. Power and Sail boaters are evenly represented with boats ranging from 16 to 35 feet in approximately 285 mooring slips. Cruising to other Okanagan Yacht Club Marinas around the lake and visiting their clubs are favorite pastimes of many Vernon Yacht Club members.
VYC also has a very active Sailboat Racing Fleet of 30 boats that holds weekly competitions in the bay. Members of other Okanagan Yacht Clubs enjoy invading the VYC during our “Club Invasion” event and the club’s spring time Okanagan Sailing Regatta is well attended by competitive keel boat sailors from throughout the valley and a few from other areas.
The Annual VYC Boat Show is a Free Public Event! A donation of a non-perishable Food Item to the Salvation Army Food Bank goes a very long way each year. Please remember to bring one! Here is the list of best food items to bring for The Salvation Army.
