Explore Vancouver Island and the outlying islands by sail. Vancouver Island is ideal for sailing year round, but especially in the spring and fall months. All levels will feel comfortable sailing here with the sheltered inland waterways of the east coast to the rough waters of the open ocean. Explore the partially hidden inlets, wild life (whales/seal/porpoises) and numerous islands.
Sailing is a great way to meet your community, with a handful of fantastic sailing races and a few associations that offer many sailing courses. Also, there are multiple public docks and full service marinas to choose from. Many marinas offer facilities such as showers, laundry, stores and pubs. Check out the Harbour Authority Association of BC for an extensive list.
