Our Fleet

The Viking Sailing Club prides itself on offering an impressive array of well-maintained sailboats for our members to sail at Jericho beach and in British Columbia. Our boat numbers are carefully balanced against the number of club members to ensure both optimal boat availability and excellent membership rates. All of our boats have Viking names.
