This year we decided to name our annual Boat Show the “2017 Boat & Watersports Show” because many of our vendors carry an incredible selection of watersports gear as well as boats and the Boat Show will have it all!
New at the Vernon Yacht Club this year is the new 22’x34’ deck expansion added onto our existing 14’x70’ deck. It’s like having an extra room at the club and with most of our events and dinner at capacity most nights, it’s a very welcome addition! Boat Show visitors are invited to enjoy all areas of the club and marina and we’ll be serving up barbequed burgers, sausages and veggie options for the Boat & Watersports Show as well as hosting a Okanagan Spring Brewery Beer on our deck.
The restaurant is family friendly, the view is out of this world and now more people can enjoy it! The Vernon Yacht Club has also renovated and expanded the VYC kitchen, completed just over one year ago, to allow for a raft of new kitchen equipment so we can offer menu service to our members and guests.
The VYC Marina and Breakwater are also going through an upgrade this year! You’ll notice the docks moved out from the shoreline to accomodate the construction. All water slips will still be available for our Boat & Watersports Show vendors and he public to come down and enjoy!
