Club Facilities


The Clubhouse

The clubhouse is perched on the water's edge, with a shaded deck overlooking the lake. Inside we have a kitchen and dining area, as well as full washroom and shower facilities. Club memorabilia decorates the interior and illustrates the long history of the club. 



Indoor Storage & Workshop
A former float plane hanger now serves duty as sail, mast & equipment storage, as well as member lockers, small craft storage (canoes, kayaks, paddleboards) and a workshop for carrying out minor repairs. 



Dock slips 

16 dock slips are accessed from the main floating dock.  Average water depth at the dock is 2 - 3 ft.  There is no shore power or hookup facilities here.  There is currently a waiting list in place for dock slip space. 



Wet Moorings

20 Wet Moorings are provided in the bay beyond the end of the docks, in a depth of water up to 4.5 ft.  Onshore storage space is available to keep tenders, securely within the club property. 



Beach Area for Dinghies & Catamarans

Space along the beach is allocated for members sailing dinghies & catamarans, with a shallow sandy entry that allows easy launching and retrieval back to shore. 



Launching Ramp & Dinghy Dock

A paved launching ramp runs into the water alongside the dingy dock.  Club dollies are available for launching dinghies, as well as a fixed winch at the top of the ramp for single handed launch & retrieval of larger dinghies.
