Our Clubhouse & Member Services

The Rothesay Yacht Club, on the beautiful Kennebecasis River is your personal summer resort and vacation get-away, without the need or hassle of a cottage. The Clubhouse offers a number of member services including rental, refreshments and endless summer sunsets. The enhanced breakwater and enlarged marina docks/berths provide safe, stable and protected access to boats. Club volunteers provide friendly assistance to boaters and are often available to help with minor repairs and advice. Please check the RYC Service Rates, for a listing of marine services and fees.


Special events are available to members including dinners, dances, fun races, sailing regattas and the annual summer cruise, just to mention a few. Events occur all year and create pride of ownership within the membership. Please check the events page and e-mails for details on upcoming events.


Dock System

We have the capacity for 120 slips at our floating docks for our members. Powerboats and sailboats of up to 55 feet. Berths are arranged as either a stern-to or side on berth with some capacity for finger docks.

Our Wharf and Breakwater

Protection from the elements

Our breakwater was commissioned in 2006 to provide the club with the objective to provide both security and protection from the wind and waves. This expanded breakwater allowed for the expansion of our dock systems and grow the membership to the nearly 150 family memberships we have today.

Our dock sections are situated just east of a breakwater with a convenient launching ramp and numerous moorings. The club is a relatively small volunteer-run club with an atmosphere that is very friendly and helpful. The emphasis is on having fun in a safe boating environment whether it be sailing, powerboating, racing or sail training.

The club offers a variety of facilities with space for storing and short-term repairing of boats and masts.  There are free pump-out facilities and freshwater is available for any visiting boater.
