We had a party here for my in-laws 40th anniversary. It is a beautiful place in a great location, with that grandness you would expect from a yacht club. They set us up in a separate room and there was a set menu. The meal started with some butternut squash soup. This was very nice. It was followed up with a Caesars salad that was just OK. The main course was salmon with veggies and rice. The salmon was overcooked, but this happens often in groups. My favorite part was the dessert, pecan pie with ice cream. Worth visiting.

*This is a review of the yacht club as a wedding locale only* What better place to feel like a princess for a day than someplace with "Royal" in the title. Oh wait, have some random kid come up to you before you walk down the aisle and tell you that you look like a princess might help too. Hubby and I were lucky enough to get married here going on a few years ago, but I've always wanted to yelp about how special this place was and made for an absolutely perfect day. I know, cliche right? But believe it or not, I'm not one of those people who dreamt about a wedding day and I didn't want to get overly involved with the details. I was the anti-Bridezilla. The person in charge of events at RVYC took care of a lot of the details since I was planning my wedding from California. I've heard about some wedding locations that have a lot of rules (no personal flowers or decorations, etc.) but the people at RVYC were very accommodating. We ended up getting married on the lawn behind the club which is perfect for a small to medium size wedding. We had to rent the chairs ourselves but that was relatively pain free. My bridesmaids and family also decorated the dining room themselves. They have several preset menus to choose from. We ended up doing a midday wedding and had a great assortment of hot and cold dishes. For a yacht club the prices were not ridiculous and at the time we actually thought it was pretty reasonable. The food was all five star. The desserts were absolutely incredible. They are also able to accommodate canapes and beverage service. No matter what the weather wants to do, the huge windows in the dining area provide a gorgeous view of the water, which is perfect for a place where it can potentially rain just about every day of the year. I come from a sailing family so I was lucky enough to be able to have a wedding here. At the time (I don't know what the rules are now) you had to be a member or closely associated to one. If you can snag it, I say by all means look at having your wedding at this yacht club.

Is a beautiful day watching this 6-meter world's from the upper deck at the rvyc The sashimi was very good tuna and salmon served very nicely and they had a really nice bison burger with melted cheese that was really nicely done as a special today Wonderful location It is not open to the public. A private club

We attended a 50th birthday party at the RVYC this past weekend. We were impressed with the view, the service and the food. It was a fantastic venue and everyone one that attended had an amazing time! We also had a family dinner here a couple years ago with our children (7 & 2) and the lower level restaurant was also lovely, tasty food and very family friendly.

Came here for our work Christmas dinner party. Beautiful venue with view of the water. Nicely decorated in and out, not over done. The buffet dinner was fabulous! Good selection of seafood and the carvery had prime rib and turkey with all the fixings. The dessert table was just as long as the dinner buffet. Every dessert imaginable was available. Servers were attentive. Wonderful atmosphere.

Out of all the yacht clubs I've been to, this is definitely top 3. The clubhouse is beautiful, the location unbeatable, great service, good food, and a vibrant sailing community to mingle with. To dine here or use the club facilities, one must have a membership to the club or at a reciprocating club, so many simply can't go, but there is a way - start sailing! The Club maintains the most visited directory of sailors looking to crew for racing. Learn to sail a bit, sign up on the crew bank. Someone from the club will likely contact you asking you to crew on the recreational Wednesday night races, after which there is always a social gathering at the bar/restaurant for the sailors. If you sail on a member's boat, you'll likely be invited into the club for a drink or dinner. So, start sailing! Of course, if you like, you can always apply for membership, and knowing how to sail and having a sponsor for the club racing community won't hurt ;)

Great food, great people, great view! A club worth joining if you are a boater of any type.

I've been attending the Christmas buffet with my family, and coming here for special occasions since I was a baby. The food has always been great and the Club itself is gigantic and beautiful. I love the giant wooden spiral staircase. On sunny days you get an amazing view of all the boats, the ocean, and the mountains in the distance. The staff have always been warm, friendly, and attentive. The buffet this year was as great as expected. Although I felt slightly limited because I am a vegetarian and none of the hot dishes had labels, so I avoided anything that wasn't obviously a potato or something. The dessert buffet was to DIE for. I'm so glad I left room.. I piled my dessert plate high and headed back to the table. The chocolate cream pie was amazing, the cheesecake was creamy and wonderful.. one of the best I've ever had, and the eggnog creme brulee was incredible. I've been talking about it for days to anyone who will listen. The Christmas dinner buffet does have a dress code of "informal festive". Basically no jeans or athletic shoes. I was disappointed to see a few attendees ignore this. You are also not permitted to use your cellphone inside.

The view alone is worth five stars!!! We had the sushi and sashimi the toro was amazing!!! The tuna tartar also amazing. If you know a member get them to take you. If the wind is down you may even get to paddle board!

I must say, in the interest of full disclosure that I am not generally a fan of clubs unless they are professional ones. I have been to yacht clubs like this one where guests treated the staff as if they worked exclusively to satisfy their needs (demands?). From my experience here as a guest I have been impressed with the down-to-earth, caring staff and members who didn't seem to be there merely in order to be seen. The food at lunch is tasty. The club sandwich was so big that half each was more than enough. I really liked the random, home made look of the turkey instead of that bleached-white chicken or turkey in razor thin slices that is often used. The lobster bisque was tasty with juicy, not mushy pieces of seafood. The dessert choices could be more creative but that's a minor quibble. If you are lucky enough to be here on a clear day, the view is fantastic and it's a great place to dream. And maybe drink Moet et Chandon as the people sitting next to us were.

Vancouver’s Top Yacht Clubs

yacht club in vancouver

The yacht clubs of days past were snooty, exclusive affairs, where the greatest benefit of membership was the feeling of being accepted by a bunch of other rich folks. Thankfully, times have changed (mostly), and Vancouver’s home to a handful of yacht clubs that offer precisely what you’d hope for: ample cocktails, tanned nautical babes and, when there’s time, a little bit of sailing.

Drunk Sailors There’s no dress code or clubhouse at Tiddly Cove Yacht Club ; casual social events are held at the Maritime Museum or various False Creek pubs. What else would you expect from a club whose name was inspired by a Vancouver Sun comic strip? ( Tiddly , apparently, is British slang for drunk.) 1905 Ogden Ave. From $70/year, plus initiation, from $70.

Serious Sailors West Vancouver Yacht Club has a friendly, community vibe, and it allows non-members to take classes. The club, on Howe Sound, has some of the best sailing equipment in town and a roster of world-class instructors. 5854 Marine Dr., 604-921-7575. From $869/year, plus initiation, from $2,445. Nubile Sailors When they’re not playing beach volleyball, those fit Kits girls are at the Kitsilano Yacht Club . Non-members can pay $18 to join racing and dinner nights on Thursdays, when the patio gets rowdy. 2401 Point Grey Rd., 604-730-1646. From $325/year.

Moneyed Sailors Remember our comment about yacht clubs changing with the times? Not the 106-year-old Royal Vancouver Yacht Club , the Jericho Beach home to Vancouver’s millionaires and their tanned, taut trust-fund daughters. RVYC won’t divulge their membership fees, because presumably, if you have to ask, you can’t afford it. 3811 Point Grey Rd., 604-224-1344.

Royal Vancouver Yacht Club

Royal Vancouver Yacht Club Coal Harbour Station Royal Vancouver Yacht Club 201807.jpg

The Royal Vancouver Yacht Club ( RVYC ) is a yacht club located in Vancouver , British Columbia. Royal Vancouver Yacht Club currently operates two marinas, the one at Jericho Beach in English Bay and another in Coal Harbour . The Jericho site includes a clubhouse, two restaurants, and berths enough for 350 as well as a dinghy dock. In 2017 the award-winning Dock Building was completed, designed by Michael Green Architecture , providing offices for the Harbour Master, instruction and amenity space and workshops to maintain boats, sails, and gear. [1] The Coal Harbour site has approximately 350 berths, some with covered moorage, and is the location of the floating restaurant called The Mermaid Inn. [2] The club also has seven offshore stations in BC waters.

Notable members, external links.

The club was founded as the Vancouver Yacht Club in 1903. [3] The club officially became the 'Royal Vancouver Yacht Club' in 1906. J. Kennerly Bryan and his partner Mr. Waterson designed the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club club house in Stanley park (1910). [4] The permanent yacht club located at Jericho Beach was opened 21 years later in 1927. [3] Fred Laughton Townley & Mr. Matheson designed the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club club house on Point Grey Road at Highbury Street in 1926 [5]

In 1940–41, the Royal Canadian Navy Reserves scheme for training yacht club members developed the first central registry system. [6]

In 1970, George A Cran edited 'Annals of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, 1903–1970' which was condensed and rewritten from records of G.B. Warren, first historian of the club, and the personal recollections of the members of the History Committee, R.V.Y.C., by Norman Hacking.' The Club Annals provides a history of the RVYC's "founding, granting of the Royal Charter, prominent early yachtsmen, racing contests and trophies, officers of the Club, and a general review of sail and power boat activity for sixty-two years in the waters of Burrard Inlet and English Bay, Vancouver, B.C., and Gulf of Georgia, British Columbia, Canada." [7]

In 1986, M. Watson MacCrostie edited 'Annals of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, 1971–1985': an updating of the history of Club's members, boats, events and trophies as they appear (or have been amended) in the Year Books, Seabreezes and Annual Reports of the years 1971–1985. The information was taken and rewritten from the records and pictures in the Archives of the Club [8]

In 2003, as part of the Club's centennial celebrations, James P Delgado wrote 'Racers and rovers: 100 years of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club.' [9]

The Royal Vancouver Yacht Club has a collection of model yachts. 'My Calliope', for example, designed by naval architect Jack Hargrave was donated to the club on 31 May 2012. [10]

This Simple Yacht Club Building in Vancouver Just Won the Highest Architectural Award in Canada

  • Story: Katie Nanton

Since opening a clubhouse on Jericho Beach in 1927, the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club has resided upon a stunning stretch of coveted coastline. Ninety years later, a fresh and functional dock building, designed by Michael Green Architecture, was added to its footprint.

With a nautical design partly inspired by boat sails, the simple structure sits on the shoreline where “the beach is kissed by the sea.” It was that song lyric (from the Who’s “Love, Reign O’er Me”) that floated through architect Michael Green’s mind as he designed the building with his team, but its architectural intention is not to crane boaters’ necks with undue flashiness, nor steal the spotlight from its natural surroundings. Instead, it performs a utilitarian function: as a working building, serving a large marina.

And now it has been rewarded, among 11 other projects, with a Royal Architectural Institute of Canada’s Governor General’s Medal in Architecture—the highest distinction given to an architectural project in Canada.

Dock Building

The inclusion of a somewhat humble dock building—housing workshops, showers, instruction spaces, washrooms, and storage areas for sailing gear—may at first seem remiss in the award-winning company of glitzy museums, grand performance halls, or graceful libraries. But its recognition is in fact progressive, flipping the script on what the stereotype of an “award-winning building” may be.

“I think there is a real specialness that the jury chose a building that is so modest,” Green says.

Industrial buildings are “rarely ever thought of as places that can be ‘beautiful architecture,’” he says. “I think we need to change that attitude, and recognize that all buildings have an opportunity to make their community a more beautiful place, or a more functional place. All buildings deserve some care and thought.”

The Royal Architectural Institute’s jury members singled out the dock building’s “simple form and efficient organization,” calling it both poetic and sensible, and praising its “careful thinking” around composition and materials. “To coin a phrase,” the jury wrote, “sometimes less is more than enough.”

Dock interior

The design process itself was an unusual one because of the sandy building site. “It needed to have a foundation that sits above the beach, and be sensitive to the ecological issues along the water’s edge,” Green explains. A large chunk of the $3.5-million budget went into that base foundation—highly unusual for a new building—and the final product was constructed out of metal, timber, concrete, and polycarbonate translucent sheets.

Albeit a fairly simple overall design, there are some special subtleties in the structure that bring the architect joy. For instance, the roof forms a sharp knife’s-edge on the ocean side, alluding to the prow of a racing sailboat. And when the lights are on inside, a lantern effect is created as light flows hazily through the polycarbonate panels. In fact, those cost-efficient sheets were an important piece of its architectural puzzle, allowing daylight to flow inside while also providing a durable carapace that could withstand the accidental hit of a ship’s mast.

Green referenced the area’s heritage in the design, as well, recalling the big timber fisheries and canneries that once lined Vancouver’s waterfront. They, too, were housed within simple, functional forms such as wedge- or gabled-shaped buildings.

Dock building

“They were not designed to be ‘architecture’—they were designed to satisfy a need and a purpose. And I think the spirit of this building is the same: a simple gesture of architecture to satisfy a need,” says Green. “I love that this project was honoured with a Governor General’s because it really speaks to the fact that good architecture doesn’t have to be expensive. It just has to be thoughtful, careful, simple—and it needs to belong to its place.”

The yacht club’s dock building not only belongs to its place but also has a stealthy ability to blend into it. “You can walk by it a million times and not notice it, and that actually brings me joy,” Green says. “It’s got this really lovely modest quality that I think is really important. The site is the beauty; the utilitarian purpose is the beauty. And it is just a simple, quiet building on the beach.”

How Southampton corrected their course to win promotion to the Premier League

LONDON, ENGLAND - MAY 26: Jack Stephens of Southampton lifts the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final Trophy after his team&#039;s victory, after Southampton secure promotion to the Premier League after defeating Leeds United during the Sky Bet Championship Play Final match between Leeds United and Southampton at Wembley Stadium on May 26, 2024 in London, England.

Editor’s note: This article was updated following Southampton’s victory in the Championship play-off against Leeds United.

Three days on from the final game of the Championship regular season against Leeds United , Southampton ’s hierarchy arranged a boat trip after training.

Spirits were high as players trained at St Mary’s Stadium on May 7. A 2-1 victory at Elland Road had halted a three-match losing streak and the team were heading into the promotion play-offs — the first leg of their semi-final was to be away to West Bromwich Albion — with rediscovered momentum.

Once the session was completed, the squad travelled to the nearby English south coast, where a Sunseeker yacht was waiting for them. Southampton’s ownership group, including Sport Republic co-founder Rasmus Ankersen, lead investor Dragan Solak and other key executives, also made the trip.

Southampton took the yacht across to the Isle of Wight and had lunch at a beachfront restaurant, The Hut. Solak, who one person joked “should have just bought a yacht” instead of the club when relegation from the Premier League was confirmed last season , spoke at the lunch, telling players they would be able to have the party of their lives provided they won promotion via the play-offs.

Southampton have done just that, beating Leeds 1-0 at Wembley thanks to Adam Armstrong ’s first-half strike to secure the type of celebration Solak promised.

According to Deloitte Sports Business Group, Southampton will receive a revenue uplift of at least £140million ($178m) across the next three years as a result of their promotion to the Premier League .

How much is the Championship play-off final worth?

It is the third triumph for Southampton manager Russell Martin over Leeds and opposite number Daniel Farke — whom he played under for Norwich City — this season. One was that final-day fixture three weeks ago, and the other came against the backdrop of four successive losses for Southampton last September, with recently-appointed Martin under growing pressure from supporters. Then came Wembley.

While the then director of football Jason Wilcox and Sport Republic shared profound faith in Martin, believing he was among football’s best young coaches and would prove himself at the highest level, that 3-1 win against Leeds eased growing scrutiny.

Martin’s first year with Southampton has delivered a cultural shift and an overhaul in playing identity; more personable off the field, more possessional on it. It can, however, be bookended by form deserting his side at the start and at the end of the season, which snuffed out hopes of automatic promotion. In between those dips, Southampton went on a run of 25 league games unbeaten, bringing a winning streak and mindset back to St Mary’s.

This season, Southampton have scored 22 goals in the final 15 minutes of games, more than any other Championship side. Internally, it is being attributed to the depth of spirit Martin has fostered as well as improved coordinated training, where players under his ‘Train how we play’ mantra can maintain a better structure for longer within 90 minutes.

Ryan Fraser ’s last-minute winning goals away to Hull City and Millwall and Flynn Downes ’ at home to Watford gave credence to the internal notion that the longer a game goes on, the more the odds fall in Southampton’s favour due to Martin’s possession-based, suffocating passing style. His identity makes the opposing team run, stretching the space between units, with fatigue increasingly becoming a factor.

yacht club in vancouver

Martin has been described as a “what you see is what you get” character by those close to him. He is relatable for young players, having retired five years before. He is only 38 years old now.

Arguably his greatest challenge was to win the trust of the dressing room and its senior figures. Upon his arrival, Martin walked into a fractured club devastated by post-relegation redundancies , with unhappy personnel also leaving and several players who appeared despondent and suffering from a confidence crisis.

Incoming staff, speaking on the condition of anonymity to protect relationships, say they entered an environment that was cold and suffering a lack of communication across each branch of the club. Martin inherited 31 outfield players with three goalkeepers and has since expressed publicly that most of them wanted to leave.

Martin likes to have in-depth conversations with players individually in his office, hoping they feel comfortable opening up. He held several one-on-ones with players who had been in a psychologically difficult place after relegation and wanted to leave for a fresh start.

Some said their chief desire was to simply start enjoying football again. That level of honesty struck a chord with Martin, appreciative they felt able to express those emotions. Gradually, others, who were initially more guarded, followed a similar path.

The day after one defeat, Martin spoke to players and staff. Rather than dissect the game forensically at that stage, he shared his more empathetic side. He presented a list of all his own fears in everyday life and why they cause anxiety and doubt. It served as a part of Martin’s wider picture approach, putting football into perspective.

Given he has a big interest in politics, veganism and Buddhism, Martin is a man with a core set of beliefs that he channels into his day-to-day existence.

The Russell Martin playbook: Touches, touches and more touches

Changing the mood around St Mary’s was another task that would require patience.

Players were acutely aware of supporters’ negativity — not just related to last season but across several years, with playing at home becoming a subdued, groaning and, at times, apathetic experience.

With piecemeal progress, Martin and the players have worked hard to transform the atmosphere to the point where that strength of feeling crescendoed in the play-off semi-final second leg, with St Mary’s at its loudest in recent memory. The team received a raucous welcome as their coach arrived pre-match, with flares, flags and songs.

Players were taken aback by the level of support, with some excitedly filming the scenes from inside the coach. West Brom’s preparations were then disturbed as they were held up for 15 minutes, waiting for the roads to clear outside the stadium.

To carry out Martin’s ball-dominant style, the squad need a high level of confidence in risk-taking, playing out of tight situations defensively and performing line-breaking passes.

Goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu , before a season-ending Achilles tendon injury in April, was a case in point.

The Republic of Ireland international, who has regularly come under intense criticism, has struggled with his shot-stopping since joining in 2022, with underlying data showing he has underperformed his expected goals against (xGA) metric by 20 goals this season alone. It has contributed to Southampton conceding the 11th most goals of any Championship side, despite their overall xGA total being the fourth lowest.

Martin, though, has continued to defend Bazunu strongly. He has taken a broader look at his side being caught on transition and therefore presenting a higher number of quality chances to the opposition and this was viewed as more of a pressing issue.

Regardless, Bazunu’s distribution when playing out from the back is his greatest strength and is seen to discernibly improve ball progression. Martin’s side have registered the Championship’s joint-second highest expected goals (xG) per 90 minutes (1.73), compensating for the sporadically porous defending.

Rewiring the attacking structure has been illustrative of Martin’s coaching acumen, remedying the disappointment of losing Nathan Tella to Bayer Leverkusen last summer — coaching staff thought he would score 15-plus goals this season if he had remained at the club — by moving Kyle Walker-Peters into a right-wing role when Southampton had the ball and shifting Adam Armstrong, who has been directly involved in 36 goals, the most of any Championship player, into a quasi right-forward.

Armstrong, who scored the goal — his fourth in three games against Leeds this season — that sent Southampton back to the Premier League, has been an unquestionable success story under Martin, trained to make intelligent and incisive out-to-in runs, where he ends up receiving the ball in dangerous positions.

In January , having pushed for Hull’s Jaden Philogene months earlier , Martin was eventually delivered an archetypal right-winger in David Brooks from Bournemouth, joining on loan and with Southampton inheriting his high Premier League wages.

The delicacy of a Championship play-off final will naturally have consequences on summer plans.

Failure to secure promotion would have meant incurring further losses and financial cuts, owing to the necessity of adhering to profit and sustainability rules (PSR). Key players such as Walker-Peters would have been sold and those on loan who have been impressive and who want to stay — namely Downes and Taylor Harwood-Bellis — would have found it difficult to have permanent deals sanctioned.

yacht club in vancouver

PSR meant Solak could have not injected more cash even if he wanted to, leaving Martin to work with loans and smaller, more economical acquisitions. For example, it was made clear last summer that Southampton could not shop in the same market as fellow relegated side and promotion rivals Leicester City , who were able to sign former England internationals Conor Coady and Harry Winks among others.

There is a sense that Southampton will be in a better position now promotion is assured, whether it is next season or later down the line. Although the squad will be upgraded, Sport Republic has made acute efforts to ensure continuity, regardless of short-term failure. The school of thought insists staff will know Southampton’s aim is to establish themselves as a top-10 Premier League side and offer the best platform for young players.

But Martin has repeatedly had to contend with other challenges.

Losing Wilcox, who left for Manchester United in April, was a significant blow. The pair had a close relationship and the same footballing beliefs, with Wilcox the club’s biggest advocate for Martin’s appointment. It was hoped to be a long-term relationship but Wilcox departed less than a year into a project that aimed to change the club’s deeper culture. Wilcox is regarded as a professional and media-savvy operator who was popular with staff due to his clear ways of working.

Earlier this week, Southampton sold out their 35,000-seat allocation for Wembley, with the excitement around the city greater and more obvious than in over a decade, going back to when they last won promotion to the Premier League in 2012.

Going up was fundamental in Southampton’s immediate success and to Sport Republic’s multi-club model, which has put in over £300million during its two and a half years in ownership and is awaiting some form of return on its investment.

Yet the level of root and branch reform that has taken place — with Martin and his players the leading influences — has brought broader vindication and now, thanks to football’s richest one-off game, a much bigger reward.
