The Royal Newfoundland Yacht Club is founded on a love of boats and boating and the fun and comradery that goes with it. That same spirit of adventure and fun infuses the many social traditions at the Club. The RNYC offers you a special place to unwind with old friends and meet new ones as you share in the infectious fun of “messing about in boats”.
Benefits & Services
Learn to Sail
Open to RNYC members and nonmembers the RNYC Learn to Sail Program starts from ages 5 to 8 years to adult. Certified instruction is offered in both dingy and keelboat instruction. Students are guided from their first introduction to boating and boating safety to becoming competent sailors performing advanced boat handling manoeuvers in a variety of conditions.
RNYC is the port of call for adventurers and cruisers from around the globe. In 2018-2019 Captain Olivier Huin overwintered on his way to his second attempt at crossing the Northwest Passage in his wooden sailboat Breskell.
Solo sailor Randall Reeves stopped at RNYC on his way to completing his famous Figure 8 Voyage.
