Bedford Basin Yacht Club
If you've been looking for a great place on the Bedford waterfront...join the club!
BBYC has been a part of the Bedford community and a landmark on the Bedford Waterfront for over sixty years. You don't need to own a boat or be an experienced sailor to become a member.
The club offers year round activities in a friendly, family-focused environment. Our home page is updated regularly with sailing and social events to which all members are invited! From regattas and races to the Commodore's Ball, an annual Christmas party, and other events throughout the year, the BBYC has a range of fun and interesting activities.
If you are a boat owner and need boating services at BBYC, you must join as a Senior member and pay the one time joining fee. There is typically a short waiting list for marina berths but we have lots of room in our mooring field. Call or drop into the club so we can discuss your boating needs.
You might want to learn how to sail, or if you already have experience, you may want to become crew on race nights. Please feel free to drop by and check out the club, however we do ask that if you've participated in any of our events for more than 3 times, its time to join and become a member.
Here are the different levels of membership available for all ages and interests. We encourage you to select the one that best suits you.
This Senior membership is for those 35 years of age or older who own a boat and want to use BBYC's boating facilities. The senior membership includes 2 votes at any club meeting and allows full access to BBYC services. When becoming a senior member you are eligible to include all members of your household family - this will ensure that everyone receives the same member privileges as you do.
