*** Members, an email with log-in instructions will be coming soon ***
Welcome to the website of the Victoria Cruising Club. We are a group of people that enjoy the active boating lifestyle in a club with low dues and high social interaction. We include all kinds of sail and power boats and like to welcome a few new members each year. If your boat is resident in the southern part of Vancouver Island (south of North Cowichan) and you would like to get involved in our club, please contact us via one of the links below.
The Victoria Cruising Club originally started as the Victoria Outboard Club in 1956. Members’ vessels were not very large but they managed to go cruising none the less (complete with small family members and the usual pet).
Around 1970 the Club’s name was changed to the “Victoria Cruising Club”. The Victoria Cruising Club maintains a maximum of 75 members plus 8 Associate members and 7 Honorary members. With 75 vessels on the roster we can pretty well take up most of the moorage that many marinas have to offer. Many of our members are graduates of the Canadian Power Squadron and many belong to various local Yacht Clubs as well.
