Outstation and Cruising Stations

The ROYAL CITY YACHT CLUB's Outstation
The RCYC Outstation is located in the heart of the Gulf Islands at Salt Spring Marina in Ganges Harbour.  There are some limits to length of stay and Outstation rules are here.
The Outstation is on a First Come First Serve Basis. Outstation rules are in effect from May 15 to September 15 each year. 
Salt Spring Island is a destination retreat for people of all descriptions and means. 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. 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.

General Guidelines

These cover general procedures for the RCYC Outstation marina.
 
  1. There is no requirement to phone ahead or make reservations. At the Outstation as you can tie up any time as long as there is space.
  2. If you have arrived at the Salt Spring Marina Outstation, there is no need to register with the marina. To record your stay, go to our website (member only area) and "sign in" so other members know you are on the dock.
  3. Don't forget to sign out (on our website in the member-only area) when you leave the Outstation/Cruising Station. This is important for tracking purposes and to let other members know that you are no longer at the Outstation.
  4. Follow all the normal rules of the marina.
