Hello everybody. We recently purchased our MacGregor and moved to Powell River, British Columbia. Retired and at the gateway to Desolation Sound – we can’t wait to explore next summer! If helpful, we have a couple of bedrooms going spare and and space to park two or three MacGregors in the driveway.
We will be spending most of next summer at our cabin on Powell Lake and sailing on the lake. If you would like to join us on the lake we have space there too for three or four boats.
We are new to MacGregors so look forward to connecting with, and learning from, other owners! If interested, contact us directly! Best, Kerry and Richard Smith
We are dying to do Desolation but we are also new to the boat and to sailing it so we may not be able to be ready by next season. But eventually for certain! I have been the a number of years ago on a larger boat and the trip was fabulous.
Sounds like a very pleasant idea Richard, keep me posted anytime you have settled on a date and if can are able to join in i’m sure we will. So far have lined up an 8hp honda aux and a marine shop that will do a bracket install as well as bottom paint and chk over of both motors. That will leave us able to start as a trawler then add mast back in early spring and start the REAL learning curve 🙂
We’re working on getting Blue Yonder in good shape too. It’s all a learning curve. Looking forward to sailing and powering her next summer. Cheers.

Welcome to MYCBC
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.
