Club Information

Welcome to beautiful St. Margaret's Bay!

Our club is located on the pristine waters of St. Margaret's Bay with its superb conditions for sailors and boaters of all ages and interests.


Come sail with us on the pristine waters of St. Margaret's Bay, which offers superb conditions for sailors and boaters of all ages and interests. From our docks you can race, cruise, sail, motor or kayak around the bay and we are only 30 minutes from Halifax.

Our club started in 1956 with no home and existed for over 40 years with no permanent facilities. Jump ahead to today: from hard work and the generosity of many volunteers, we have a clubhouse and marine facilities that our members are proud to share with everyone that comes to visit or join our club.

We offer professional sailing programs with dedicated instructors teaching everything from beginner to advanced levels.

Our members enjoy access to all club facilities, including clubhouse, boat launch, tender storage space, marina, and mooring field, plus access to all club social functions and guest privileges. Members also receive discounts from club facility rates and our junior learn to sail program.


Please note the club is not regularly staffed during the off season. It is only open during events and TGIFs.
