QCYC’S Cruising Program

The Club promotes and encourages its members to cruise independently or as part of a Club Organized Cruise. The Club’s cruising efforts are coordinated by the Cruising Committee under the Sailing Program managed by the Rear Commodore. Traditionally, the Cruising Committee holds an educational evening early in the season.

Cruising Educational Evening

Details forthcoming for 2024.

Independent Cruising - Visiting/Reciprocal Yachts Program

QCYC will be accepting visiting yachts from reciprocal yacht clubs unless circumstances prevent this and that QCYC has space for the specific visiting yacht. For details on Queen City Yacht Club's the policies and practices for visiting/reciprocal yachts and for other yacht clubs on Lake Ontario, see the Lake Ontario Club Cruising Association (LOCCA) CLICK HERE.

Information for independent cruisers visiting QCYC CLICK HERE.

Club Organized Cruises

QCYC organizes reciprocal cruises with other Lake Ontario clubs. To ensure space at both clubs, the numbers involved from each club are balanced.  This means restriction of the number of yachts involved and that registration is required to reserve a place. Waiting lists are maintained in case the numbers increase or registered boats drop out.

Information for cruisers visiting QCYC as part of of an organized cruise will by provided by the cruise coordinators from the incoming club.
