Cruising

 

Club Cruises for 2021:

If you are new to cruising, a club reciprocal cruise is the best introduction to more ways to have fun on your boat.

Online registration for cruises will be available. Check back for updates and watch the QuickClipper.

Three cruises have been confirmed for 2021 ! 

Friday July 2 - Sunday July 4 - Whitby Yacht Club (WYC)

Cruise Co-ordinators:  Andrew Good, TAPAS and Russell Sergiades, OUTWARD BOUND

Join our cruise to Whitby Yacht Club (https://www.wyc.ca/) on the weekend of July 2th to 4th. With Canada Day falling on a Thursday, this will be our first big cruise of 2021. Whitby is a great location with wonderful walking on the Waterfront Trail. Whitby Harbour Days offer a variety of activities and a great way to get to know the area.

We will meet on Saturday for a BBQ dinner and refreshments. They have a great setup with BBQs readily available.

For more details contact Andrew Good (agood2@live.com

Saturday July 17 - Sunday July 18 - Oakville Yacht Squadron (OYS)

Cruise Co-ordinators:  Peter and Moya Ashby, RESOLUTE

The Oakville Yacht Squadron has always had a friendly relaxed atmosphere, just like QCYC. Oakville is just 17 nautical miles from Toronto which makes for an unhurried sail and a suitable trip for new cruisers and those with kids.  The club is on the left as you move up the river.  There are communal barbeques so we can have a group dinner. Bring some nibbles to share and your favorite food to BBQ.  The club brings the wine. If you forgot something there is a large Fortinos just 4 blocks away. There are, of course, plenty of restaurants just up on the main street if it happens to be a special occasion. On both sides of the river, there are lovely walks beside the lake and through tree-lined streets with historic homes. Take in the little museum’s collection of old sewing machines and typewriters.

Sunday morning, join your friends for breakfast at Mo’s Kitchen (just up east on Lakeshore).  Check Mo’s kid’s menu on their website. Anyone for Eggs Florentine?

There could be a limit of 10 boats. Sign up early!

Saturday July 31 - Monday August 2 (Civic Holiday Weekend) - Royal Hamilton Yacht Club

Cruise Co-ordinator: Paul Lehal, FRITHA

A destination not to be missed! An enjoyable distance sail, with the added twist of a lift bridge followed by the sights and sounds of Hamilton Harbour. Once you arrive, cool off in their pool or poolside with a drink. Popular with QCYC members so sign up early!

Sail to the west end of Lake Ontario to the canal into Hamilton Harbour ... visible from miles away as it is directly under the Burlington Skyway bridge. The lift bridge normally operates on a fixed schedule, every half hour. Should this be different in 2021, this site will be updated with the correct information. The bridge monitors channel 16. You must proceed through the bridge under power.

Once inside the harbour, sail west, 3.2 nautical miles and turn south to sail through the break wall. (GPS coordinates N43 16.496, W79 51.851).

We will meet on Saturday for a BBQ dinner and refreshments. They have a great setup with BBQs readily available.
