For ones needing to leave from crescent beach marina and boat ramp,I have found an alternative boat ramp.Stewart Farms and next to Wards marina. It’s free and you can park your vehicle and trailer there too for free but parking is limited. Seems to be funded by the city of Surrey and not advertised. It’s down the Nickelmekle river about one N. mile.You drive there on the Crescent road and look for a smaller sign says , Stewart Farms.Only problem is the river is shallow and should only use when tide is at least 60-70% of its high tide,or if worried go when only high tide. I’ve been ok so far as I have a MacD with a 2’ draft. But use your depth sounder and take the first river corner wide as left side a sand bar. Hope this helps. Also the drawbridge operator phone is 604-538-3233 Rich Harder
Welcome to the home of the Macgregor Yacht Club of British Columbia. We are a group of present and past Macgregor Yacht and Tattoo Yacht owners. Most of our members are in British Columbia, Canada, although we do have members from other places in Canada and the USA.
We organize on and off the water activities for owners of Macgregor and Tattoo boats; regattas, cruises, flotillas and our annual all member get together ‘MacRendezvous’. Members share tips, ideas, and hard-come-by knowledge about how to maximize the joy of owning these wonderfully affordable boats.
The basic, free sections of this website is open for all to enjoy.
You can register for free to have additional access to public forum where you can communicate with the club and can be included in emails that the club sends to members and registered users related to upcoming activities.
MYCBC membership provides you with full access to all areas of the website and the ability to participate in all activities. The modest, annual membership fee is $65 for the first year (which includes a club burgie and welcome package) and $35 per year thereafter. Membership in the club is recognized at marine stores and marinas for discounts on supplies and moorage. We also have negotiated discount insurance coverage for members. The saving you can expect will pay back your membership fee manyfold.
