Honored to Host
In 2003, Past Commodore of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club Heinz Rautenberg dreamt up the ICOYC and announced its inauguration to coincide with the Club’s 100th anniversary. The Royal Van welcomed the finest yacht clubs from around the world to join the Council and — you joined. In 2005, the ICOYC hosted its very first World Forum at the RVYC.Now, 20 years later, the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club celebrates is 120th anniversary and the ICOYC turns 20. Once again, the RVYC invites the ICOYC to return for a World Forum, September 18 – 22, 2023.

The team of professionals and volunteers at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club is planning an exciting week of meetings for ICOYC delegates, wonderful experiences for partners, an optional post-forum cruise to our beautiful outstations, and most importantly, the return of the Commodore’s Cup on Friday the 22nd of September. The Cup will be held in the Royal Van’s fleet of six matching Elliott 6ms where ICOYC’s sailors can show their skills on the waters of English Bay.
