1. How do I become a member?
You can complete the membership application progress by registering online.
2. What types of boats are allowed at the Club?
For sailboats, any boat with a length under 26 feet is allowed. However, the club has recently expanded (by special request) to allow certain dragonboat, canoe, and kayak teams to join. Please contact us if you are unsure if your craft qualifies. Powerboats in any shape and size are NOT permitted at FYC (this does not include the outboard motors used on sailboats).
3. Do FYC members have to pay to enter the Park / Conservation Area?
Yes. The Fanshawe Yacht Club is located within the Fanshawe Conservation Area controlled by the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority (UTRCA). Most FYC members purchase a season Vehicle Pass rather than paying at the gate each visit; a more economic approach. In addition, the UTRCA requires that each boat used on the Lake must have a valid Boat Pass.
4. Does the Club lend, lease, or rent boats out?
Yes. FYC has a leasing program for graduates of the Sailing School (or any qualified club member) to use the School’s boats when they are not in use or already signed out. If you are interested in this program, please contact us.
5. What docking / storage options are available at the club?
