About Us

The Petpeswick Yacht Club (PYC) is a small but vibrant club on the northeast shores of the Petpeswick Inlet in East Petpeswick (Musquodoboit Harbour), Nova Scotia. PYC provides wharfage and moorings, Learn To Sail programs, Lightning races, kayaking, paddle boarding, and community events. The clubhouse is also available for special event rentals such as weddings, parties, and meetings.

With family and community in mind, PYC is the ideal location to enjoy the waters and the beauty of the surrounding area.


PYC's history

In 1966, a group of local individuals who enjoyed sailing decided to create a yacht club as an official body to ensure the continuation of recreational sailing on the Petpeswick Inlet. In 1971, the current clubhouse was built on the yacht club premises.
