Dartmouth Yacht Club

On the Water

A hub of nautical activity

Dartmouth Yacht Club’s goal is to promote safe, fun and responsible on-the-water activities including sailboat racing, and cruising, powerboat events, sail and safety training, and human powered boating.

With nearly 200 berths, including for boats up to 50ft, DYC is an excellent home base for exploring Bedford Basin, Halifax Harbour and beyond.


Compete in DYC’s Performance Racing Program. Our program includes regattas, club racing, and family fun pursuit events. We also host an annual Junior Regatta, Bamse Cup.

Explore Racing


DYC organizes both sail and power cruises and meet-ups on the water. Safe, enjoyable and fun – join us for day trips, weekend excursions and more.
