Scheduled Events


In response to concerns expressed by the Chief Medical officer and the Minister of Health, RNYC regrets to announce the cancellation of scheduled RNYC-sponsored and private Christmas Events at the Clubhouse including the 2020 RNYC Christmas Gala and the RNYC 2020 Kids’ Christmas Party.

Social Membership

RNYC Social Members, their family share in the activities scheduled throughout the sailing season and into the Holidays. They have access to the swimming pool and play area, and enjoy fine dining in our diningroom as they watch the sailing races and sunsets on Conception Bay.

Social Membership Benefits also include credit and guest privileges, full use of the Dining Room and Bar, and access to Charles R. Bell Room for private functions.

No boat required!

For Social Members wanting to “learn the ropes” our CanSail certified Sailing School offers sailing lessons for children, youth and adults in dingy, and keelboat classes. Qualified sail instructors provide guidance and training from the first experience to training for local and national competitions.

Join the Crew

Members with boating experience looking for on-the-water experience, can add their name to our sail racing ‘crew wanted’ list. Skippers looking for additional crews check this regularly for Wednesday and Saturday races.

Become a Boating Member

Social Members may apply to upgrade to full membership at any time on payment of the balance of the annual fee for the new membership. See our Membership Page for more details on RNYC membership.

“ Becoming a social member turned out to be a great idea. We met several fun and interesting people, including visiting sailors from other countries. The diningroom serves excellent food at a reasonable price and the bar has a nice quiet pub atmosphere. The staff and other members make us feel welcome. ”
