Events and Regattas

Wednesday Night Racing

Members race regularly on Wednesday evenings, and we usually get together for some snacks and stories afterwards. Most of the members' fleet is in the 25 - 36' range.

MacAskill Cup Regatta

This will be the 30th 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). August 2 & 3, 2019. Afterwards, join us for awards, legendary chowder and fun & games ashore. More info.

Yacht Club boats filled the canal as sailors transit the lock to the start line for last year's Green Island 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.
