Antigonish Boat Club

A Volunteer Led, Membership Supported, Community Boat Club

July 5 2022

Kayaking programs are underway and youth sailing lessons are coming up soon!

A reminder to send in your membership dues for the 2021-22 season if you haven't already. Your support is key to keeping our facilities operational.

Mobile Sailing School

Each year (pandemic aside) the Boat Club hosts Sailing lessons for youths provided by Mobile Sailing School instructors. We are very pleased to report that these lessons will return for the 2022 season. Lessons take place July 11-15. We can accomodate 10 students aged 8-12. For details, please see our Sailing page

Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP)

For several years the Club has hosted SUP lessons. We are currently investigating opportunities for the 2022 season and we will announce details as they come available.

Canoe and Kayak

Thanks to the acquisition of kayaking equipment, the club is pleased to be offering Kayak lessons and outings during summer 2022. For details, please see our Paddling page

New(er) Docks

Thanks to a Provincial grant the Club upgraded docks during the 2020 season. A third section has been added and floats were replaced with more stable, more durable, and environmentally friendly floats. A kayak launch platform will be added in 2022

Boat Ramp

Under Construction - literally! But it works pretty well with just gravel so far. Heavy boats aren't recommended at this point.

Small Craft Storage Building

With financial assistance from the NS Dental Association Community Grant, we will soon start construction of a ramp-side storage building for member's canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards.
