BQYC COVID-19  Policy Documents   (July 08, 2020) 

Note: BQYC Visitor Dock remains closed. 

Update for 2020 Learn to Sail Programs    (June 9, 2020)

Dear customers: Due to COVID-19 BQYC has made the difficult decision to extend the cancellation of our Youth Sailing Camps to ALL Summer Sail Training programs (Youth Sailing Camps, Adult Dinghy Program, private and semi-private lessons). Although this was a disappointing decision, we know it was the right decision to protect the health and safety of our stakeholders, and the right financial decision for BQYC  We will process the remaining refunds to registrants of the Adult Dingy Program.

We plan to be back next spring with Adult Yacht Lessons and next summer with our full compliment of Youth and Adult summer programs.  Let's hope that things return to normal by then!  In the meantime, we hope that you and your family remain healthy.

Welcome to the BQYC

BQYC is located in the City of Belleville on the beautiful Bay of Quinte and we are a short walk from the newly revitalized downtown core.

Our club caters to the interests of both sailing and power boaters through our various programs in cruising, racing in keelboats or dinghies, sail training or simply socializing at the Long Reach Bar. We also have an active social calendar as well.

Note that BQYC is a self help club and our expectation is that members will contribute to such activities as the organizing of events, house and grounds maintenance, sailing school, etc.

New Introductory Membership Rate !
