Calgary Yacht Club members have enjoyed boating on Chestermere Lake since the club was established in 1933. Nestled on two acres of waterfront property on the east shore of Chestermere Lake, the Calgary Yacht Club's facilities support a broad range of boating, educational and social activities throughout the year. Just 10 minutes from Calgary's eastern limits, our facility is within easy reach of most residents of the region. Annual memberships provide unlimited access to the club, providing affordable access to the water.
The club is a not for profit organization, run by members who volunteer their time and efforts toward developing, promoting and enjoying the sport of sailing. While some of our members are highly accomplished sailors, we continue to welcome members of all abilities, ages and interests.
You don't need to own a boat to enjoy the club and its facilities. The club's buildings and grounds provide a relaxed family atmosphere. The club maintains a small fleet of sailboats which, for a nominal fee, members can rent or lease for their own enjoyment.
The club offers a variety of sailing and social activites including:
*Thursday night racing
* youth sailing day camps
* youth racing
* adult sailing lessons
* masters training programs
* disabled sailing
* weekend race regattas
* theme dinners and socials
* special events
There truly is something for everyone at the Calgary Yacht Club!
