The West Island Squadron (WIS) is a unit of Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons. We’re in the St-Lawrence District, which has over 700 members among its three squadrons including Lake St-Louis and Montreal.
We are based at the Beaconsfield Yacht Club (BYC), in Beaconsfield, Quebec. Our courses are held primarily here, and a couple of kilometers up the shore road at the Lord Reading Yacht Club. Both clubs are in the city of Beaconsfield, (Montreal) Quebec.
The West Island Squadron may be smaller than other squadrons, but as far as course participation and enthusiasm, we can compete with the best of them. In fact, we have more Celestial Navigation graduates than any other squadron in Canada!
