ICOYC World Forum 2023 – Return to Vancouver!

Monday, September 18 to Saturday, September 23, 2023
Royal Vancouver Yacht Club

In 2005 Royal Vancouver Yacht Club arranged and hosted the first “Commodores’ Planning Forum” with the theme of “Sharing Problems and Building Solutions”. As a founding member of the ICOYC in 2006, the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club is pleased to announce that the club will be welcoming back ICOYC delegates, their partners, and families to the 14th ICOYC World  Forum which will be held on Monday, September 18 to Saturday, September 23, 2023.

In 2023, the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club will be celebrating its 120th anniversary. Over the past century, RVYC has established itself as one of the world’s premier Yacht Clubs with highly regarded cruising and racing programs.

The venues for accommodation, delegates agenda, and partner/family’s itinerary will be finalized in the coming months. All ICOYC member Clubs will be informed of the various programs as soon as the details are available.

The RVYC’s Jericho Clubhouse is well-situated in the northwest of Vancouver. The Clubhouse has an enviable location, centrally located with a scenic view of English Bay and the North Shore mountains. The Club’s two home ports located in Jericho Marina and Coal Harbour boast safe, clean, and environmentally friendly facilities that are home to over 700 vessels. Aside from the home ports, RVYC’s large asset base also includes seven offshore stations situated throughout the British Columbia coastline for the exclusive enjoyment of our members year-round. All nine marinas are Clean Marine certified, and two of them have achieved the highest rating (5 out of 5 anchors).

RVYC’s mission is to promote yachting, seamanship, and fellowship among current members and those who share our values of tradition, sportsmanship, and community service, among many others. The Club is pleased to host the fourteenth ICOYC World Forum to continue to promote collaboration and camaraderie within the international yachting community.

From members to staff, everyone at the Club is looking forward to hosting this fantastic event next year and welcoming you back to Vancouver, where it all began.
