About the RVYC Sailing Program
The Royal Victoria Yacht Club has one of the highest quality sailing programs in the country. Voted Sail Canada's Sailing Program of the Year in 2011 and 2012, we encorporate Sail Canada's CanSail program into our training programs. There are a variety of different courses to choose from. Even sailors as young as 4 can learn to sail.
At the helm of the RVYC Sailing Program is our award winning Coach and Sailing Program Coordinator, Stephen McBride. Stephen is assisted by Sail Canada certified coaches Jenn Grierson (Optimists), Erik Van Der Pol (Lasers) and Kristine Williams (Double Handed) with high standards of safety and skill in teaching sailing and racing.
