SNSYC was founded in 1981 by a group of individuals interested in boating. From the outset it was designed to be friendly and unpretentious, providing an affordable and accessible club serving both the powerboat and sailboat communities. Currently the club has about 400 memberships and a very active Junior Program. The Clubhouse is a distinctive and well-appointed heritage home converted for Club use. It is located on the west shore of Tsehum Harbour at North Saanich Marina. The club operates a reciprocal dock and a full service bar and dining room available to members, their guests, and to members of reciprocal yacht clubs.
