Membership - Join the Fun!

Petpeswick Yacht Club welcomes boating and social members and it depends on their volunteer support to maintain the club's marina facilities, and to support its Learn to Sail programs, kayaking, paddle boarding, Lightning races, and community and social events.  Member support also allows us to ensure the clubhouse is available as a rental space for hourly / daily events and meetings as well as larger events such as weddings, parties and celebrations. We ask our members to contribute a minimum of 10 hours of volunteer work per year; more information can be found by clicking here.

Members enjoy the following benefits in exchange for their support:

  • All members in good standing hold proprietary rights (an equity interest) in the property
  • There are discounts on sailing lessons, social events, hall rentals
  • There is free booking of kayaks and paddle boards via member page (member login below)
  • There is unlimited use of boat slip and beach
  • All members in good standing have voting privileges at the Annual General Meeting (one vote per membership)
  • There are docking, mooring and yard storage opportunities (see Dockage page)

Everyone and every idea for how PYC can contribute to our local communities is welcome!

Membership Classifications  -  Application below

Membership at PYC is an annual fee which helps cover general operating costs associated with running the club. We currently enjoy a large member-volunteer base and welcome you to join and enjoy all our events, on and off the water. You don’t need to be a boating enthusiast to become a member – many of our current members are non-boat owners.

Please be aware that boating members, who desire docking, mooring, or summer / winter storage space, should read the information on the Docking tab and decide if they wish to apply for any of those types of spaces. There will be an additional application form which identifies your craft and what spaces you want. This allows the Rear Commodore to place you on the appropriate waitlists.

Please take a photo or scan and email the completed form(s) to us at Payment instructions are on the form. You can also mail the completed form(s) to PYC, 434 East Petpeswick Road, East Petpeswick (Musquodoboit Harbour), NS, B0J 2L0, along with a cheque covering your payment.
