Knotmeter - October 14, 2016

Our sunsets at the Club are "Real and yes their spectacular" What a great excuse to come down for a beverage or a bite and enjoy the view!


Please remember Haulout will take place this year during the weekend of October 29th and 30th. The Cradles will be arriving on October 20th and will be unloaded on October 24th.

We are asking for all members who have their boats on the Hard (either in the inner harbour area or on the outer breakwall) to please remove them at your earliest convenience.

We are hoping to have both areas clear by the 24th. If you are not able to have your dingy, kayak, canoe etc taken away by this time please contact the main office at 613-548-3052 or as so we can make alternate arrangements.

  • Junior Sail Instructors sail the Sharks to give students a keel boat experience and to participate in Club races.
  • Queens Sailing Team practices keel boat skills each fall to prepare for regattas.
  • Members may skipper a Community Club Shark for personal pleasure as a benefit of KYC Single or Family membership.
