Welcome to the JIB SET sailing club's Meetup Group. The original JIB SET was founded in 1968. The club welcomes members, 19 and over, who share a passion for sailing. Our presence here on Meetup is one way we introduce the general public to our club. You can also learn more about us from this video on YouTube
About the JIB SET
Over the long history of JIB SET, many thousands of lower mainland residents have improved their skills and enjoyed the sailing lifestyle in the company of some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet... sailors from every walk of life. Continuing a long tradition, throughout the summer the club hosts Friday Night Racing and through the winter we have bi-weekly Sunday Sailing events. These events introduce sailors to the exciting world of yachting in a fun and sociable atmosphere.
New sailors who have the basic cruising skills can build their experience by sailing the club’s pocket cruisers in the company of more seasoned sailors. Club members can join flotillas of larger boats for adventure cruises in the waters of our world-renowned Strait of Georgia, Sunshine Coast and Gulf Islands. Accumulating experience on the water and taking intermediate and advanced courses through our sister company - Cooper Boating, Canada’s largest chartering organization - are your stepping stones to bare boat chartering in Canada and abroad.
Jib Setters today are continuing the work of our founders whose vision was to make sailing keel boats accessible to everyone without the commitment and expense of boat ownership. The club is a community that encompasses the values of our predecessors ... mentoring, seamanship and most importantly FUN. These values are encapsulated in our mission statement:
"... to maximize our members’ enjoyment of the sailing lifestyle in an inclusive and safe environment and to promote excellent seamanship through mentoring and experience on the water."
