Nestled in the charming and picturesque Pointe-Claire Village lies the Pointe-Claire Yacht Club, which has transformed over the years from a humble assembly of boating aficionados in 1879, to a distinguished yachting establishment.

The Pointe-Claire Yacht Club takes pride in its exceptional youth programs, a strong racing tradition, and a vibrant social atmosphere in an informal setting open to all.

Our mission

Our mission is to inspire you to cultivate a lifelong enthusiasm for all that boating encompasses.

Our values

  • Emphasizing youth development and training
  • Encouraging family engagement in Club activities
  • Pursuit of excellence in racing
  • Fostering friendly competition
  • Prioritizing safety in all activities
  • Championing environmental conservation efforts
  • Offering a social hub for our members


The Pointe-Claire Yacht Club offers a range of memberships, superb facilities and a variety of club activities for the whole family. Members of this Club come from all walks of life, united by a passion for being afloat and enjoying friendships that, in many cases, endure for a lifetime. So, whether you are a boat owner or not, as a member, you will enjoy everything our Club has to offer.

All boating experience levels are welcome. This is reflected in the mix of fun-sails and regattas in our sailing program.  At the end of most outings, our members gather over a friendly drink and share their boating experience of the day.


Perfectly located on Lac St.Louis, PCYC is nestled in the Pointe Claire Village steps away from quaint shops and restaurants. 


We encourage, guide, and develop the sport of racing sailboats. Sailors of all levels come to PCYC to enjoy racing on Lac St. Louis, from beginners in Optimists, juniors in 420’s, to our elite sailors competing with distinction in class championships at International and Olympic events. Weeknight racing, Friday clinics and weekend regattas will surely satisfy your thirst for learning and enjoyment.

Sailing School

We are proud of our Sailing School which is instrumental in introducing the next generation of sailors to our sport. Multiple programs are available for all ages, led by our highly trained instructors.

Clubhouse and Patio

Our clubhouse and patio offer spectacular views and are a welcoming setting for casual gatherings, or a fun night out for members and their families. They offer the ideal setting for our active social calendar or an easy place to relax when you’re not keen on getting on the water. Delicious meals accompanied by a selection of fine wines and beer can be enjoyed in our clubhouse or on the patio.
