Key People

Steering Committee

Our club is volunteer-run.  As outlined in our club constitution and bylawsthe Steering Committee, as well as other key members below, spend countless hours to fulfill the club's mission of sharing the joy of watersports as a community.

President: Iwan

Vice-President: Karen

Treasurer: Federico

President, Vice-President and Treasurer are UBC students, elected for a one-year term at the club AGM in October.

Rear Commodore & Social Media:

Rear Commodore: Clément

Rear Commodore: Erin

Commodore & Head Instructor:

Rear Commodores are appointed by the President, Vice-President and Treasurer to support them in running the Club. For example in the past years, this has included setting up this new website and membership platform, sourcing merchandise such as wetsuits, or helping through subcommittees, for instance to establish a mentoring program or plan how a fleet renewal can best serve our members for the years to come.

The Commodore is a Steering Committee member responsible for the operation of the Club, for instance coordinating with fleet captain and bosuns to ensure our equipment remains in good shape and up to date, as well as monitoring extraneous club activities such as multi-day out-of-base trips on club equipment.

Our Head Instructor is responsible for organizing and maintaining the training programs offered through our group lessons, as well as recruiting, training, coordinating and monitoring instructors who deliver these lessons. They arrange proficiency exams as requested, and occasionally conduct instruction themselves.


This is how our club functions smoothly: addressing or redirecting emailed requests, helping people with their membership and lesson registration process, informing our members through our newsletter, advertising our club so that more people can share the joy of being on the water.... They do it all!

Head of Communications &
Lessons Coordinator: Erin

Social Events

Community happens through helping our members connect and share good times together. Social events are organized around our activities, but not only. If you have ideas that could help our good vibes, let us know, and we'll do our best to plan it with you!

Fleet Captains and Bosuns

Our fleet captains, with the help of bosuns, are responsible for the good working order of our fleet. They arrange maintenance as needed, offering work hours to members who contribute their time to repair our equipment and maximize its availability for enjoyment on the water. They coordinate with the Commodore and Treasurer to ensure we have the required items, and inform the steering committee about the general condition of our fleet, and about our members' needs and wishes for equipment.
