The Martinon Yacht Club (MYC) has been around for over 65 years and it has always been a volunteer club committed to safe & enjoyable use of the our beautiful rivers and waterways. With over 100 active sailing and power boat members, the club is open to all ages and widely regarded as being family oriented.
MYC membership fees are the lowest around - offering great value to anyone wanting to be part of a boating community where “many hands make light work” and boating knowledge is available for the asking.
If you are a sailor and are interested in racing, our racing program is one of the best racing clubs in the area. If you don’t want to race your own boat there are many opportunities to crew with one of our skippers. If you would like to cruise up river we have an annual cruise that includes many events for all ages; the children love it and over the years MYC has taken hundreds of children up river on many cruises.
New members are always welcome. We offer full membership to those wanting to race, cruise or require use of our boating facilities. We also offer an Associate Membership for those you who only want to launch kayaks.
Marine Services: We have one of the best wharfs on the St John River for easy access to the river. The wharf has a water supply and a gin pole with a winch. Our Clubhouse is a quaint and charming space complete with a kitchen and bathroom. It has a great deck to socialize on, watch club races or to just sit back and enjoy the beauty of the river. We offer: winter mast storage for a nominal fee, offer use of a mooring mover for members to maintain their moorings, dinghy storage and a cart for easy launch, storage sheds for outboard motors and oars. We do not offer berths
Learn: For those just starting out, MYC members regard boating safety as a top priority.
New members are provided a sponsor who will help them feel at home, show them them the ropes. What better way to learn to sail then to help crew in one of our races. We can help find you a skipper to crew with.
Junior Membership: It's free Junior Membership for anyone 14-21 years of age. This is a great opportunity to learn to sail. We will get you out on race night crew in with one of our skippers. After the age of 21 you can remain a member for free until the age of 25. Although we waive the membership dues other fees still apply such as fees for marine services. Junior Members require parental approval.
Club House: Whether you are drawn by our shore-side MYC clubhouse, our marine services, our active boating calendar, our regatta standard racing program, or to watch a club race, our members come from all points to enjoy the company of family, friends, and fellow members just like you. Steeped in Maritime history, these waterways have offered generations of local inhabitants both livelihood and untold hours of recreation. Today, the numerous rivers, lakes, inlets and coves which await continue to invite seasoned and new boaters alike to come and experience one of the most beautiful and pristine areas anywhere in Atlantic Canada.
Kayaking: Do you love to kayak
We offer an Associate Membership for anyone with a kayak and you need a place to launch.
