Welcome to
Kingston Yacht Club

For over a century, Kingston Yacht Club has been a port-of-call for the finest traditions of Great Lake Sailing-and so much more. From sail- to power- to paddle-powered craft, owners and non-owners alike, veterans of the lake to those wishing nothing more than a rigorous swim at sunrise or a refreshing dip at sunset, KYC has it all. And whether it's a summer lunch on the patio with colleagues, a beach-side supper with family, or evening dining with friends as the winds of winter cut a path between last season and next, KYC is home one of Kingston's finest year-round waterfront bistros.

"Go west to sail," it is said, "Go east to explore." And when both sound a tad energetic, grab a book, a cooling beverage and beachside lounger, and settle in to all Your Cottage in the City has to offer. At the confluence of the open fetch of Eastern Lake Ontario and the always inviting 1000 Islands region of the St. Lawrence, KYC hosts biweekly evening races and weekend regattas, as well as a full year-round schedule of cruising fleet outings and rendezvous. Membership has its privileges, including exclusive access to the Club's satellite dock and facilities, two hours downriver, in the very heart of the Islands. Always thought about sailing? KYC offers superb Learn to Sail programs for all ages, opportunities to crew, and member-access to a Club-owned fleet. All of this, wrapped-up in flexible membership categories and attractive rates.
