Deep Cove Yacht Club

Officially, the Deep Cove Yacht Club began its existence on July 31, l936 as the Deep Cove Sport Association and later became the Deep Cove Yacht & Sports Club, known fondly to most as the Deep Cove Yacht Club. Unofficially, the club’s formation was in reality the natural outcome of many of the Cove’s residents love for the water, water sports and boating. The municipality of North Vancouver had kindly allowed the club to rent a piece of land on the foreshore of Panorama Park.

Club Members cleared the land and erected a modest building and for the next forty nine years maintained and improved, all by volunteer labour, the clubhouse, grounds and floating wharves. During World War II, the clubhouse was requisitioned as an elementary school and it also served as a meeting place for the local Red Cross and Air Raid Precaution organizations.

During its early years, the clubhouse was the focal point for most of the Cove’s social and recreational activities and present Cultural Centre. By the early 1980’s, the original clubhouse was suffering from extreme old age and was replaced by the present building, with financing undertake solely by club members. In the past 20 years, the club has upgraded the wharves by installing 3 new concrete floats, electricity, water, extra lighting, security and new fingers. The club also acquired the Outstation at Iron bay in Indian Arm. DCYC members continue to pitch in and donate whatever talents they have to help keep the club functioning smoothly.
