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.

FYI..... over the next few weeks more construction will be going on at the NYC property. Work will be happening on the breakwater to repair storm dammage from last year. This will involve trucks and heavy machinery going back and forth where most of the boats are stored. Members who have their boats stored in this area are asked to be aware of the dangers of a construction site and think SAFETY FIRST.
When onwraping or doing spring work on your boat, please be aware of the construction and don't block the road leading to the breakwater, drop off the tools needed at your boat and move your vehicle to a safer parking spot.
Thank you for keeping NYC a safe place to work and enjoy.

REMINDER for all boaters..... your proof of insurance is required ASAP. If you've sent your proof of insurance in already, I thank you very much. For those who have not supplied your proof of insurance, your boat will not be lifted in without it. So please drop off the proof of insurance to the club ( attention... Wharves and Slipways ) or email a copy to morrisonandsandra@gmail.com
