2021 Canadian Intercollegiate Sailing – Cancelled

UPDATE: Unfortunately, other university teams did not receive permission to travel at this point, so the university regatta had to be cancelled.

This weekend our club reignited our long-standing relationship with the Laurier Sailing Team. A group of 12 Laurier sailors came to our club to train for the Laurier invitational regatta at our club on September 18-19. The team is also training for other regattas throughout Ontario and Quebec over the course of the Fall. They have also been invited to join our club race nights on Wednesdays. Go Hawks!


2021 Club Championships

The club championships took place August 28 & 29. This year we had two wonderful days of club racing with 13 boats on Saturday and 9 boats on Sunday,  and fun was had by all. Saturday’s 3  races featured moderate winds which varied  a fair bit across the lake.  Sunday featured heavier shifty winds and course feature broad reaches and close reaches.

Special thanks for Tom Sullivan, Thomas Jennewein and Ulrike Gross for running the races for us!

2021 All Arms Race

The All Arms Race will be held on Sunday July 18th.  This is a friendly club pursuit race, where all the boats start at a time based on their speed, and with the finish line at the 2 hour mark.  The marks are set up in each of the three ‘arms’ of the lake, and we sail around the lake in a prescribed direction.  In an ideal world, all the boats should converge on the finish line at the same time.  It’s a lot of fun and everyone, whether you are a novice or an experienced sailor, is welcome. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for candidates for our Broken Rudder award!

The Wayfarer class will start at approximately 2:00pm.  Skippers meeting time at 1:00pm.  No need to register, just show up and join in. See also our Racing page. Current Start Times list can be downloaded here.

After the race we will gather to socialize, at a distance. Bring your own food & drink.
