The Royal Hamilton Yacht Club (RHYC) is located in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, at the west end of Lake Ontario, and was established in 1888. When the yacht club first opened, it was located beside the the canal on the beach strip. In 1915 this building was burned to the ground and a new clubhouse established at the foot of James Street North and then later moved to the foot of Bay Street. Since its founding in 1888, RHYC has promoted local and international yacht racing and offers both youth and adult sailing instruction.
The Club’s first yacht was the Blue Moon, a New York 30 sloop which dropped anchor off the Club dock on July 2, 1931. The Youngstown Yacht Club is proud of its heritage, and continues to support the traditions of the sport of sailing in all Club activities.

On behalf of the Directors and Members of The Stormont Yacht Club, it is my pleasure to extend to you an invitation to visit our club and make use of our facilities during the 2016 sailing season.
The Stormont Yacht Club is located within sight of green buoy SX7, Chart 1414, adjacent to the village of Long Sault. Coordinates immediately off our front dock are 450 01.60’N and 0740 52.97’W.
Chart 1414 indicates three feet water in front of the club. This is incorrect. While the average depth in the bay is 15 – 20 feet, the average depth from seaward, including 50 feet on either side of our finger dock is 6 feet. “Straight-in” approaches to either of our berthing bays have a 5-6 foot depth while inside the berths are 10 feet deep.
Our clubhouse offers our guests showers, full kitchen facilities, barbecues, ice, a screened-in porch, green lawns and shade trees under which to relax and watch the world sail by.
Vessels of no more than thirty-seven (37) feet in length, no more than twelve (12) foot in beam and with no more than five (5) foot draught are welcome at the visitor’s dock located in the east bay and may stay there or may use empty berths in either of the two bays. A list of empty berths is located on a whiteboard in the clubhouse. Guests may elect to moor off-shore on available moorings.
Our rate for reciprocating clubs is free for the first two (2) nights, thereafter $20.00 for each subsequent night up to a maximum of four (4) nights. Pump out and mast crane use is complimentary.
We want you to feel welcome at The Stormont Yacht Club, so do not hesitate to join in our activities. During the week a custodian is usually on the grounds.
The protected harbor of Great Sodus Bay creates a perfect location for family fun on the water. Settled in 1794 and lying halfway between Rochester and Oswego, this little known harbor is often referred to as the Crown Jewel of Lake Ontario. When the wind is from the north the water of the bay is calm and when the wind is from the south the water of the lake is calm, giving boaters a place to have fun on most all occasions. From the state park and beach on Lake Ontario to fishing, sailing, motor boating, canoeing, kayaking, swimming or just exploring or relaxing this is the destination that your family could be enjoying every weekend of the summer.
The Royal Canadian Yacht Club is a sailing club with a tradition that dates back to 1852. The Club provides yachting activities for racers and cruisers alike from our Island facilities.

We are a working club which helps to keep our fees reasonable. Our members come from all over the greater Rochester area and well beyond from Spencerport to Sodus. We have members whose homes are as far away as Canaseraga, Geneseo, North Rose, and Bloomfield.
Our club is family oriented. Several annual events target fun times for the youngsters. In particular the Poker Race is usually a dinghy race in the harbor involving fun with water guns, and more from the docks. The annual Pig Roast is an all-day event with fun and games such as sack races, and water balloon tosses. Our club calendar has the complete list of events, including the PYC Club Cruise, another noteworthy event.
We have an active racing program with members of all ages and skill levels. Some of the best racers are senior sailors who often make for very challenging competition. See the racing page for a complete list of Thursday night and weekend races. Our winners and crews are honored with trophies at the Annual PYC Fall Banquet.
Organized in the fall of 1943 and founded as Pultneyville Yacht Club in 1944, the purpose of the club was then the same as today. “A club dedicated to fellowship on land and good fun and sportsmanship at sea.” This year, 2004, marks our 60th year! While all PYC members value and honor our rich club as well as hamlet history, we look forward to our future with pride.
Our location on Mississauga’s waterfront is secluded and peaceful yet conveniently close to all that the Greater Toronto Area has to offer. Acres of parkland with walking and biking trails, well-kept docks, choice of dining venues, and racing, cruising and training programs all add up to the perfect yacht club experience.
Founded in 1936, PCYC has an inspiring history and proud traditions yet we’re constantly changing and evolving with tomorrow in mind. It is the home of the Susan Hood Trophy Race, held annually since 1955. PCYC is also the home of the Lake Ontario 300 Race and the Lake Ontario Short Handed Racing Series.
We have an active cruising fleet at PCYC, with ‘cruises’ ongoing even in the winter months, where the cruising group travel to various venues, such as the Christmas cruise to the Distillery District in Toronto for lunch at the brew-house and wandering the many shops.

Whether you are an avid racer, family cruiser or just interested in learning to sail, the Oakville Yacht Squadron has much to offer. We are a family club. One membership covers the entire family and includes a wide range of activities from sailing lessons to club cruises, racing to “just messing about in boats”. The Oakville Yacht Squadron is a club for every type of sailor. To keep our costs down, we operate as a self-help club. Everyone pitches in to get the work done – and we have fun doing it. Located on the West Side of Sixteen-Mile Creek, just south of the Lakeshore Road Bridge, the Oakville Yacht Squadron is one of the prettiest spots in town.
Just over a century ago, our historic Oakville Club building was one of five bustling granaries lining the banks of the Sixteen Mile Creek. The Oakville Club building has a colourful history. Built in 1854 by a group of “barn farmers” from the United States, the original granary was owned by Oakville merchant, Obadiah Marlat. Although historical accounts differ, it is possible that the building stands of the foundation of a warehouse constructed in 1928 by Oakville’s founder William Chisholm. The warehouse changed hands for the last time in 1907 when it became home to the newly formed Oakville Club. Members immediately began renovating the old granary to accommodate their interest. Canoeing regattas, Tennis tournaments and Saturday night dances became regular events and made the Club a very popular meeting place. In the early years, two short length bowling alleys were installed on the ground floor in what is affectionately know as Peacock Alley. The bowling alleys were removed in 1927 to allow access to the new Badminton courts which was originally a surplus World War 1 airplane hanger used for agricultural displays at the old Oakville Fair Grounds at Rebecca and Kerr.
The easterly portion of the clubhouse was altered in 1948 to improve kitchen, office and bar facilities. Recent years have witnessed the addition of the swimming pool and deck area. The decade of the Nineties opened yet another chapter of growth and changes the Club, as the latest renovation plans got underway. To keep with the trends of health and fitness in the 90’s, we opened our Fitness Centre in October 1998. This rounded out our Club’s facilities. On April 3rd 2004, the River Bar & Restaurant opened. This new renovation gives our Members a more efficient service and a wonderful water view making this the prettiest casual dining setting in Oakville. This project included the redesigned, new Main Lounge Deck featuring an all glass railing that presents Members with a feeling of sitting on the top deck of a cruise ship. In 2007 the Club celebrated its 100th anniversary. Members, their friends and family enjoyed special events throughout the year to commemorate this special milestone.

Traditionally, Highland Yacht Club has considered itself the best boating value in the Toronto area. The reason lies in its working-club philosophy, low annual fees and a very lean management style. When you compare facilities and membership costs you’ll find Highland gives you the most for your money.

With our mooring basin protected on all sides, Highland is a very safe and peaceful place to relax and unwind either on your boat, ashore at our picnic tables, or in the club lounge.
