Nanaimo Our History

1920 Nanaimo Sailing Club
Nanaimo’s sheltered harbours have always provided ideal conditions for sailing, therefore it is not surprising that in April of 1897 Nanaimo’s first Yacht Club was formed led by Captain Locke. In June of 1931 the Nanaimo Yacht Club was reformed under Jack McGregor, who’s members still enjoy our waters to this day. (From the collection of the Nanaimo Museum)
