The Armdale Yacht Club is a yacht club located on Melville Island, at the head of Halifax Harbour's Northwest Arm in Nova Scotia, Canada. Although only 67 years old itself, the club's property has a history dating to 1732.

Melville Island[edit]

Since the arrival of European settlers in the area, Melville Island has been a family estate, hospital, quarantine station, military prison, prisoner of war camp, recruit training station for the British Foreign Legion, ammunition depot and most recently a yacht club.


The AYC has reciprocal agreements with other yacht clubs, e.g. Britannia Yacht Club
