Bedford Basin Yacht Club


If you've been looking for a great place on the Bedford waterfront...join the club!

The 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. You might want to learn how to sail, or if you have experience you can inquire about becoming a crew member on race nights.

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 want boating privileges at BBYC, you must join as a senior member and pay the one time joining fee. We still have space available on our new, secure marina and room in our mooring field. Call or drop into the club so we can discuss your boating needs.

There are different levels of membership available for all ages and interests.  We encourage you to select the one that best suits you.

  • Senior Membership

This Senior membership is for those 35 years of age or older who are either a boat owner, or those who do not own a boat but would like to maintain a vote at membership meetings.  This senior membership allows full access to BBYC facilities and voting privileges. When becoming a senior member you are eligible to include your spouse - this will ensure that he/she receives the same member privileges as you do. You can do this when you update your profile online - simply click "Add member to bundle" and provide the contact information.

  • Social Membership

This is for members who do not require boat services and do not want to have a vote at membership meetings. The Social membership is divided in to the following categories: Single, Family, Junior, and Student.  The Junior membership is for any person who is eight years of age and under nineteen years and has been approved by the Committee of Management or is the child of a senior member.  Students in the Learn to Sail program that are not children of senior members will have their Junior membership fee included in their first Learn to Sail session.

  • Outport Membership

The Outport membership is for any person whole normal residence lies outside a radius of 50 kilometres from BBYC and who has been approved by the Committee of Management.
