Viking Sailing Club
The Viking Sailing Club is a volunteer-run cooperative that offers sailing lessons in Vancouver at Jericho Sailing Centre. For members new to sailing we offer thorough sailing lessons on the best-maintained fleet of vessels at Jericho. We provide sailing lessons, training, racing, and casual sailing activities from our clubhouse at scenic Jericho beach in Vancouver.
The Viking Sailing Club prides it’s self on offering an impressive array of well-maintained sailboats to our members to sail at Jericho beach. Our core boat in the fleet is the Tasar. The single-handed Laser is another of our favorite boats in the fleet. The Laser was designed by Canadian Bruce Kirby and is one of the most successful single-handed sailboats in the world.
All members new to cat sailing receive their initial training on our Hobie 16. Once you are competent sailing the Hobie 16 you can advance to the more powerful Nacra 570. The Nacra F18 is the flagship of our cat fleet and requires sailing skills to match this demanding boat. We are the only club at Jericho that owns a cruise boat. Our flagship Bavaria 34, Freya, is moored in False Creek close to Granville Island. Freya provides sleeping accommodation for up to six. As a member of the club, you have booking privileges for this vessel.
