Vancouver Island Chapter Information
Share |

Vancouver Island Chapter is a friendly and fun group of boaters, with activities centred in Victoria and Nanaimo. The Chapter promotes offshore and coastal cruising and encourages boaters to realize their dream to cruise in faraway places. It’s a group of like-minded boaters, who are keen to meet other boaters and learn about getting ready to live their dream.   

Club Nights enable members to meet, mingle and learn. They occur monthly and feature speakers who inform and entertain the audience with a variety of cruising topics: offshore and coastal cruising experiences, single-handed adventures, environmental awareness, etc.  The general public is welcome to attend.
