Bluewater Cruising – October Presentation


In 2013 Vincent sailed his Nonsuch 30 “Hinterhoeller” north to Alaska and returned. Despite years of planning, he was nervous as he departed; over 1000 miles to go each way, enormously complex coastline, myriad islands, reefs, rocky shoals, currents, wind, fog, rain, very few towns, lots of decisions to make on route. Three and half months later when he sailed back home he was much more confident.
Sailing mostly solo, Vincent went up the Inside Passage all the way to Glacier Bay, then down along the outer Alaska islands, over to Haida Gwaai and down the west coast of Vancouver Island. His pictures exhibit his passage route, anchorages, welcoming harbours, wildlife, art, and the friendly people met along the way. Come along for a ride through some of the best sailing in the world.

The Silva Bay Yacht Club (SBYC) is a social club with the goals of promoting safe boating and good fellowship among our members and the greater boating community of British Columbia and provides a venue for marine related activities.

It all started around 1977 when a group of boat owners on Gabriola Island got together for a “Once Around the Flat Tops” race. It was so much fun they decided to form a yacht club. From the 50 initial charter members the club has grown to its present-day membership of 110 +/-.

There are many events throughout the year, ashore and afloat, with emphasis on safety and fun. Expand your horizons and learn from others while out on the water. The Club has a large number of very experienced and qualified mariners who are willing to share their knowledge.

The SBYC objectives are:

  • to stimulate a greater interest in boating;
  • to develop a fraternal spirit among other boating enthusiasts;
  • to provide a medium for the exchange of boating information and to do all other things which will further interest in boating generally.

This website is a portal for existing and potential members to view our activities and planned cruises; our past events; our reciprocal moorages with other yacht clubs and many links to help plan the perfect cruise.
