Welcome Aboard!

The Northern Yacht Club is a two level multi functional building. The lower level can be rented for functions of any kind. The lower level is where the dance floor, bar, gaming room, kitchen, and washrooms are located. This level is wheelchair accessible, and has an approximately capacity for 99 people.

In 2015, the upper level was converted to the “Commodore’s Lounge” and is a area reserved for senior members of club and their guests.  With the change the upper level can not be rented, even if the lower level is being rented.

The club features large lower and upper viewing decks. This is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the North West Arm.

It's a little over one week until the athletes arrive in Antigua to train for Opti NAMs and this is the last (but certainly not least) profile in our series of athlete profiles for Team Canada: Nova Scotia sailor, Jack Gogan! NAME: Jack Gogan AGE: 12 CLUB/CITY: Northern Yacht Club/ Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron SAIL NUMBER: CAN 1726 MY FUNNIEST SAILING MEMORY... In my second green fleet regatta in St. Margaret's Bay I was waiting for the Optis to start with the 420s. I was very scared that one of the 420s was going to hit me. I went a little farther away from the start but apparently some 420 girls had the same idea. When I was waiting for the race to start the 420 girls hit me right in the side of my boat. The crash was so hard that I fell backwards out of my boat and into the water! IF I WASN'T SAILING I'D BE... playing soccer or doing something with my friends WHEN I GRADUATE OPTIS... I would like to race a 420 with my older brother James. In three words what is your goal for Opti NAM in Antigua? FOCUS, FRIENDS, FUN!
