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.

Chase the Ace

The Northside 4 Chase the Ace was an extremely successful weekly ticket lottery benefiting the Emera Centre, Haley Street, Seaview Golf Club & the NYC Junior Sail Association.  Chase the Ace is currently taking a break to give our volunteers some much deserved rest.  We’ll let you know when plans are firm regarding the next campaign.  For information on the event or our partners, click on the logo below to open the event Facebook page.
