OK, I hate organizing stuff but can’t help myself. I’m tentatively possibly maybe potentially giving the slightest of minimal slight thoughts to making an event appear on the horizon in 2023 on beautiful Lake Okanagan up here in the Okanagan Valley.
Itinerary, ha, nope
Dates, na ah, not yet.
Put much thought into it, erm, what you see 🤔
What’s here, well, there’s water which is a good starting point but starting at the Vernon end (probably) of the lake anchoring off of Kin beach (sand) plus an area to beach to boats. Then off to Fintry historical site anchoring off to climb 500 steps up to the water falls. Lots of regional parks along the lake and suitable anchorages. Kelowna under the bridge (masts can stay up) public docks but? Peachland for the greatest fish and chips (small public dock but can anchor off. Penticton plus historic Stern wheeler. There’s also a floating pub with food on the lake “somewhere” if it’s back up and running. Lots of wineries with at least one with a dock or wine tour bus could be done. Usually enough katabatic winds for morning and afternoon sailing on most days.(Trailer & vehicle parking can be arranged locally ish at my place 30 minutes away for free but no overnight trailer parking at Vernon end though paid storage facilities are very close like 5 minutes). There ya go folks, what do ya all think 🤔.
Sign me up. 2022 threw me for a loop and our Okanagan Lake trip didn’t work out. If I/we start planning 2023 soon then I won’t have any excuse.

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.
