Outstations and Cruising Station

he ROYAL CITY YACHT CLUB's outstation is located in the heart of the Gulf Islands at Ganges Marina in the Ganges Harbour on Salt Spring Island.  A sign-in book is maintained for club members to sign-in year round. There are some limits to length of stay and outstation rules can be found in your membership package.

Salt Spring Island is a destination retreat for people of all descriptions and means. It is not unusual to find oneself shopping alongside some of Hollywood's biggest stars at the renowned Ganges Saturday Market. Nor would it be unlikely to be seated beside a free spirited youth existing from her knapsack! The Island is home to a myriad of artisans of all disciplines, organic food growers, retirees and those who came for a visit and just never left. Several small airlines operate scheduled and chartered flights from various harbours and airstrips. BC Ferries offer several sailings a day to the mainland and inter-island destinations and there are a number of water taxis available for service.

GANGES is a perfect place to re-provision and no shopper will be disappointed with the variety and selection of goods to purchase or browse. Restaurants suitable to any taste and pocketbook are within walking distance from the harbour and live entertainment is featured during the summer months in an alfresco dining area that anyone moored on the village foreshore will be able to listen to.
