Sailing at BYC
Britannia Yacht Club offers a range of programmes that caters to the full range of sailing interests, abilities and age groups.
Most boat owners prefer pleasure sailing and cruising along the 45 km of Ottawa River directly accesssible from the Club.
For those who like the challenges and camaraderie of racing keel boats, dinghies or sailboards, the Club holds week-night and weekend racing throughout the sailing season.
For those who want to learn to sail, the Club offers not only its nationally acclaimed Junior Club learn to sail program for children and teenagers, but also in partnership with Advantage Boating ( formerly Ottawa Sailing School ), learn to sail programs on both keel boats and dinghies for adults.
For those who want to sail but do not own a boat, there are opportunities through our Crew Bank or Advantage Boating's Sail Share program.
