About SYC

Whether you are looking for recreation, competition, fitness, or just plain fun and relaxation, a membership at Shearwater Yacht Club (SYC) will allow you to find it while exploring the best sailing  or power boating waters in the area. McNab’s Island, Lawlor’s Island, and the outer reaches of Halifax Harbour are all within easy reach.

Shearwater’s sailors range in age from toddlers to “old salts” in their 80s, all keen to enjoy the thrill and magic of sails and the sea.  You do not need to own a boat to become a member of Shearwater Yacht Club. You can enjoy all the amenities the club has to offer, including sailing, cruising, and social functions, by being a social member or crewing on someone else’s boat. This is a great way to make new friends, and find out if the life of a sailor is for you, or your family.
