Saturday, May 18, 2024 - 12:00 to 23:00


The Annual Sailpast and Review of the Fleet by the Commodore marks the official opening of the Club. As events at QCYC go, this is quite traditional and formal. It is also a day when all members celebrate the new sailing season... This is an all-day event to which all members are invited and encouraged, if not expected, to attend. There are four components to the day: Review of the Fleet in the afternoon, sail past of the squadron, post-Sailpast social, and the dinner/dance in the Great Hall in the evening.
