Welcome back, Rothesay Yacht Club Sailors

We’re really looking forward to a fantastic sailing season at the Rothesay Yacht Club (RYC), and we hope you are too!  Last year was a tough year due to COVID, which is making this summer’s sailing season extra sweet.  This year, we are looking at the summer of 2021 as a rebuilding year. We’ll be offering 4 two-week sessions, each with a cap of 28 sailors.


RYC is a private yacht club situated established in 1907 on the beautiful Kennebecasis River and has been the home to sailors enjoying the river ever since.


For those of you new to sailing, the RYC Learn to Sail program models itself on the CANSail program developed by Sail Canada, the national sporting organization for sailing in Canada.  Sail Canada provides us with technical resources, materials and national standards from which we design and deliver our sailing program.  Our instructors have received training and certification based on Sail Canada’s national standards and are registered instructors with Sail Canada.


We want to assure you that we have taken every precaution to ensure our sailor's safety during Covid-19.  We have worked with Public Health to develop our Covid-19 Policy and will ensure the procedures and protocols will be adhered to by our instructors, grounds crew and sailors.  We will post the policy on the RYC website and around the grounds.


Within this website, you will find all the necessary information to prepare you and your junior sailor for the summer.  We have also included our policies (safety, registration, participant expectations, etc.).  Please let us know if you feel there is anything that should be added in the future.


I look forward to meeting you all this summer.  Happy sailing!
