Located on the Northumberland Strait, BHYC offers some of the best cruising destinations to be found anywhere!
The Strait provides some of the most beautiful sailing north of the Caribbean, as the waters are clean,
generally calm and warm. The prevailing winds here are WSW at 10-15 knots
and the Strait is virtually free of fog.
There are numerous beaches along the shore that are simply beautiful,
and good anchorage almost everywhere for a swim, a barbeque or even for a few days if your schedule permits.
Overnight anchorages are quite appealing as there is not much commercial traffic
that can rock you all night. And the sunsets? Well, you'll have to see them to believe them!
