Chris,
I am sorry to here your leaving Calgary for Vancouver, hope to get out one last time sailing before you leave? I think there are some sailors at a lake in Surrey, can't remember the name, but it is right on the border of Delta near Annacis Hwy? Best of luck!

Chris,
Just found this, search this site for this title"Marblehead Clubs in Vancouver," someone said there is a lake called Boundry Lake this is what one person said "Hi I am aware of a group that sail out of Boundry Park in Surrey it's off Scot road just above Nbr 10 hwy they sail Victoria's primarily but they welcomed me and I sail a Seawind and it is a nice pond try Wed afternoon or Sunday"

There is a large group of IOM sailors here on Vancouver Island.
and also our up and coming fleet of RC Lasers that race out of Nanaimo B.C.nanaimorclaser.com
One thing that's so good about sailing here on the west coast is year round sailing.I spent 7 years in calgary,but i LOVE it here.

I have been looking for someone to sail with for a long time. I know of r/c boat clubs in the area but most of the boats are powerboats.
I live in North Vancouver and sail in salt water (it never freezes) Most of my boats are scrath built. IOM is my favourite.
