About Victoria Beach Yacht Club

The Victoria Beach Yacht Club is a non-profit, member funded organization with the expressed goal of supporting and growing the sport of sailing in the Victoria Beach community and surrounding areas. This is achieved through programming such as sailing schools for youths to adults, weekend racing and regattas and facilities for instruction, equipment and boat storage. Please check out the rest of the site to find out what we are really all about.

History

"It pretty much started in my garage, I was building a sail boat when Dick Quinton dropped by and mentioned that there were a few guys that were thinking of starting a yacht club at the beach. He inquired as to the boat I was building, which was an Enterprise.

The long and short of it was that Kildonan canoe were starting to build Enterprises hence that made the decision easy there were seven including mine. We built the little shed as a start then Arnie Little and I went out to the CNR yards in Transcona, tramped through the snow and picked out a caboose to serve as a club house for a hundred and twenty five dollars. We then contacted Bert McGregor at Sherbrook Motors who hauled it to the beach, hence we were underway."
