Providing Outstanding Facilities & Watersports Programs For 50 Years!

Located oceanside on Goose Spit, the Club has grown into a full-service operation including a fleet of kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, 420 Sail Dinghies, keelboats from 27'-35', a licensed clubhouse with full kitchen, and a boatshed for all the portable watercraft.    Run by a dedicated cadre of volunteers, the Club delivers outstanding value and service to the 19-Wing Comox community!

We are particularly proud of our keelboat fleet and the training that qualifies members to sail them.  All of the Club's keelboats are well-maintained and well-equipped with full galleys, interior heads, and sleeping quarters for qualified members looking for overnight trips.  The Club is registered with Sail Canada.  Each year (COVID notwithstanding), we offer up-to 24 spots on a Sail Canada Basic Cruising Course;  an accredited program that leads to an internationally-recognized qualification.

For those who enjoy the camaraderie of current and former sailors, the Club stages weekly TGIF socials and other events at the Clubhouse.  A great way to stay connected with previous mates with whom you may have served!

The Club is wide-open for membership to current and previous-serving CAF members and their families, while offering limited access to the wider Comox-Courtenay community.  Please visit our membership page for all the details!
