Hear from our Members!

We know that when you choose a yacht club, you choose a second home, a place to spend your summers, have fun with kids and grandkids…and delight in cruising life.

At Trident, we really take that to heart, and have built a community of boaters that work and play as a family. We have members who have been at Trident for 30 years and have seen immense change, some who have grown up at Trident and are now raising kids in the boating lifestyle, and some that have visited our Club often and have finally made the leap to join.

Figures, and dollars and amenities tell you what you will get with a membership, but here are some of our members to tell you what it feels like to be a member! 

“I grew up at TYC, and my kids have grown up here as well.
Everywhere we go here there is ‘family’ we know and love. Trident is our second home and truly one of my favourite places in the whole world!”

Member and Social Director
Kermac IV, Island Packet 35

“We enjoy spending time with all our Trident friends. Our membership is quite varied with people coming from Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. It's not uncommon to hear conversations where people naturally switch between English and French. It reflects Kingston's bilingual culture."

"Trident is our little place in paradise! Socializing with our dock neighbours (human and furry!) is a favourite...sailors and power boaters all together having a wonderful time! The club has a great social activities too, with lots of get-togethers and everyone working together to create lots of fun!
We also love the access to the fabulous 1,000 islands, up the Rideau Canal or into Kingston, Belleville or Brockville – all close by!"

"We love TYC! For 10 years, it has been our second home from May through September.
We joined TYC because of the sailing opportunities offered by it’s perfect location. Today TYC still fulfills that promise of great sailing, but is now also the centre of our social world, and not just in the summer, but all year round.
From the quiet at our dock on a weekday evening to the bustle of a community BBQ on a Friday night, or the thrill of racing with and against our friends in a club race, to the many social events and impromptu gatherings...we love it all."
