To a young man contemplating a voyage I'd say go.
People have used the waters of the Kennebecasis River and its Bay for centuries both for commerce and pleasure. For the last century the latter use has grown in particular. Rothesay Yacht Club, which was founded in 1908 to help fulfill the needs and desires of people to feel the wind in their hair and the sounds of the water rippling past their boats sits nestled in a small bay on the banks of this river in the Town of Rothesay, New Brunswick.
This club is situated close east of a breakwater with floating docks, a launching ramp and numerous boat moorings. The club is a relatively small volunteer-run club with an atmosphere that is very friendly and helpful. The emphasis is on having fun in a safe boating environment whether it be sailing, power boating, racing or sail training.
The club offers a variety of facilities with space for storing and repairing boats and masts. There are berths and docks, moorings, parking facilities and a club house all in a well protected harbour within easy reach of shopping in the town of Rothesay. There are free pump out facilities and fresh water is available for any visiting boater.
The clubhouse is not only for the use of members but may be rented for business meetings, social functions and weddings.
Visiting boaters are welcome and a mooring will be made available on request. Please see the Visiting Yachts page for details.
