WHY JOIN CIYC?


You don’t need to be a sailor to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the Cedar Island Yacht Club, but it helps. Cedar Island Yacht Club, established in 1972, is located on the north shore of Lake Erie just west of the Town of Kingsville on Cedar Creek. We boast that we are the most southern yacht club in Canada and the most affordable in Essex County.
 
This small but perfect location welcomes sailors who like to cruise, socialize and race. For those curious about sailing, we offer the only keel boat Learn to Sail Program in the area, Monday Night Sailing with Friends for those who want to experience sailing and a Youth Sailing Program for children ages 8 - 14.
 
Our 85 members, consisting of Full, Social, Associate and Honorary, have been very involved in the community. We have raised money for Hospice and Cystic Fibrosis as well as supporting the Ontario Provincial Police through their OPP COP Camp by offering a sailing experience to the campers.
 
Walk around our treed grounds and Lake Erie will call out and what better way to respond than a quiet sleek sailing vessel. The warm wind and sunny skies set a perfect background for a day on the water.
 
We are committed to our members to have a safe and intimidation free environment to race, cruise and socialize. If you are interested and would like to visit our Club, please email us at: secretaryciyc@gmail.com
