Events and Regattas

Members have free use of the club's 420 racing dinghy.

Wednesday Night Racing

Members race regularly on Wednesday evenings, and we usually get together for some snacks and stories afterwards. Visitors: you are welcome to join us on our boats, or on your own. While most of the members' fleet is in the 25 - 36' range, the club's 420 dinghy is available to WMYC members for these races. See Wednesday Night Racing for our 2018 schedule and details.

MacAskill Cup Regatta

This will be the 29th year running the MacAskill Cup. As is our usual tradition, warm-up races will be held on the club's buoyed short course, nearby the canal on Friday afternoon. The big race starts on Saturday morning, approximately 25 nautical miles on the lake (course determined based on wind and weather conditions). More details here. August 3 & 4, 2018. Afterwards, join us for awards, legendary chowder and fun & games ashore.

Yacht Club boats filled the canal as sailors transit the lock for last year's Green Island fun race.

MacDonnell Pharmacy Cup Ocean Race


This legacy race has been reinstated after a few dormant years, this time as an ocean race. The start will be in St. Peter's Bay just outside the canal, then we cruise/race around Green Island with a finish at Lennox Passage Yacht Club, followed by a BBQ party ashore. Power-boaters and non-racing sailors are invited to attend, you can cruise along with the racers or just arrive for the festivities. Please RSVP to Adrian Rogers at 902-631-1066 or squander452@hotmail.com.
