Who We Are

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 docking, moorings, and yard storage for boaters as well as Learn To Sail programs,  kayaking, paddle boarding, Lightning races and various community social events and activities. The clubhouse is available for  hourly / daily rentals as well as special event rentals such as weddings, celebrations, 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. The clubhouse has allowed us to expand our social programs, events and services to the wider community and the income from the clubhouse supports the marina facilities, helping to keep boating member costs as low as possible.
