About & Contact Us

The Oarlock and Sail Wooden Boat Club is a club for people who enjoy building, repairing, sailing, talking about, thinking about, and simply messing about in small wooden boats.

The club operates out of a floating boat shed at the Vancouver Maritime Museum’s Heritage Harbour at 1905 Ogden Avenue, Vancouver.

Members can be found each Saturday morning restoring the club’s fleet of small wooden boats or working on a new build. Stop by for a visit!

Oarlock and Sail is registered under the Society Act of British Columbia. The Club publishes three newsletters a year and generally meets on the third Thursday of each month.
