Kitsilano Yacht Club was founded in the summer of 1934 to foster amateur yachting on English Bay in Vancouver and encourage competition at the highest level. The club is home to many active one-design sailing fleets, including the Star, 5O5, Martin 242, Melges 24, Lightning and Cal 20 and outrigger canoe and SUP racing teams. 

We run a Thursday night and Sunday afternoon race series and host several regattas. In 2016, we hosted the 5O5 Canadian Championship.  The 2017 Kits Invitational Regatta was also Cal20 Canadian Championships, Lightning PNW District Championships, and 5O5 Western Canadian Championships.  September 2017 saw us host the 6M Oceana Cup Regatta as part of the lead-in to the  6M World Championships held at RVYC.

Outrigger canoeing is a sport in which an outrigger canoe (va'a, wa'a, waka ama in Tahitian, Hawaiian, similarly in Polynesian language) is propelled by means of paddles. Outrigger canoeing has grown from its roots in Polynesia to become a very popular paddling sport, with numerous sporting and social canoe clubs established around the world.
