Boats in the water

After the long winter, the boats are in the water! We’ll soon welcome Summer 2014 and its time to start planning. We have an amazing summer line-up for all members of the NYC.

We have our great club midweek and weekend racing; our annual excellent regattas including the Redpath TAHR, The National Event and the AHMEN series. We are hosting 2 world championships (Sharks and 2.4m) and we will begin to host Match Racing events. Finally, we are bringing back our annual regatta for all members of the club, racers and cruisers alike. This is a traditional fun and family regatta called Drain the Basin (July 19)!

We already have a great cruising schedule including Sailpast (May 31), Sips on Slips (June 7), Cruise to the Oakville Yacht Club (Aug 2-4), Commodore’s Cruise to Ashbridge’s Bay Yacht Club (Aug 23-24) and the Labour Day Cruise to Royal Hamilton Yacht Club (Aug 30 – Sep 1). Also, the (Drain the Basin – July 19) annual regatta is for cruisers too, both sail and power!

We are also bringing back for the second year in a row the National Yacht Club POKER RUN on August 9.

Please check out the new ON LINE CREW BANK system that was developed especially for the club. It is an amazing tool that makes organizing crew easy as a one, two click! You can find it in the member’s only section after you log in.

We have a lot going on at the club and we need lots of help from the members. Please take a look at the volunteering lists (also in the member’s only section) to sign-up so that we can make the summer fun, successful and continue making the National Yacht Club the best boating club on the lake!

See you on the water!
