Our History

HYC was founded on March 7, 1978, by a small group of  sailing and boating enthusiasts from various communities in the Upper Fraser Valley. The HYC initially operated from the Old Yellow Dock at the Harrison Marina. In 1984, the HYC moved to its present location at the old Ranger Station where it has sub-leased water lot Block ā€œDā€ and the old Ranger Station garage and maintenance facility from the Village of Harrison Hot Springs. Since then all improvements and additions to the docks and the old Ranger Station garage (now the HYC Clubhouse) have become the property of the Village of Harrison Hot Springs.

On the August 14, 2007 the HYC, in partnership with the Village of Harrison Hot Springs, was able to secure a five year sub-lease for the water lot Block D. This agreement has allowed to HYC to better plan its future while providing a fair sub-lease return to the Village of Harrison Hot Springs.
