We only need four letters to summarize the benefits of joining Ladysmith Yacht Club.



Travel by boat is a shared passion of our members. Our affordable fees for initiation and membership offer access to a fun Club cruising schedule, social environment and important education sessions throughout the year.  As well members benefit from many discounts for marine related services, reduced annual moorage at OBMG and access to 55 Reciprocal Moorage options during your cruising season.


When on the water we experience the joy of breathing in the fresh air, feeling the wind in our face and the sense of freedom in the journey to discover the most amazing places on this coast and often meeting the most incredible people.   That is one of our many  “Happy” places.


Our non-profit organization survives and thrives as a direct result of 100% volunteer contributions.  Volunteers are the proverbial wind in our sails or fuel in the tank.    Whether serving on the Executive or as a Committee Lead or a supporting member we promote and celebrate the dedication of our LYC Members.


There is nothing better than a group of enthusiastic, boaters sharing boating knowledge and cruising stories that are invigorating and at times humbling, yet always rewarding.
