Lunenburg Yacht Club has easy access to some of the best cruising waters in North America, which include a myriad of beautiful islands, many with beautiful beaches. LYC operates a variety of family-oriented and water-based facilities for everyone from yacht racers to land-based gourmets.
LYC has a strong keelboat racing program, and our racers perform extremely well when traveling to other clubs for competition. We also have had many very successful dinghy sailors at the club, including Olympian Lisa Ross and World Youth Sailors Daniel Baker and Adam Taylor to name a few. LYC has also hosted many successful national and international regattas, including the World Youth Sailing Championship, Optimist Canadian Championships, Sonar North American championships and the 2017 Sonar World Championships.
LYC’s Learn-to-Sail program has some of the best facilities in Nova Scotia, and even more space following our recent acquisition of a next-door property. The program offers sailing lessons for ages 6 and up throughout the summer.
In 2014 LYC started a Rowing program. All equipment is provided and instruction covers both youth and adults.
Instructional programs, racing, cruising, fuel, social events, restaurant and bar services are all available.
