This race, starting near CBYC, is one in the Kingston Keelboat Championship series. Please refer to KYC Sailors Handbook for KKC details and CBYC web site for race details.



Come down to the club and see our local (champion) Radio Controlled racers compete in this International One Meter regatta. There will be great viewing off the outer dock.Racing starts at 9:30 on both Saturday and Sunday morning.



This event consists of up to 3 short races for each of our 3 keelboat fleets. The skippers meeting is at 9:30, with 1st start at 10:30. Please refer to the online/printed Sailors Handbook for further details.



This race starts with boats giving up their handicap time at the start and (in theory) all finishing at the same time. It's a fun way to end the racing season. For race details, refer to the (online/printed) Sailors Handbook. Individual boat start times are listed there. Details on fund raising aspects of this event are to follow later.

Peter Kraszewski, Regatta Chair and is our lead KYC organizer recently held a planning meeting. The meeting was well attended (15+ people) and a lot of ground was covered in preparation for next year's regatta. Responsibilities in various areas were assigned (race management, social, volunteers, digital media presence, marketing, trophies, harbour master, etc) and the financials started. There were even some historical memorabilia items on hand, including a set of flags for the EYC regattas going back to the 1960's and results from past EYC regattas held at KYC. The next planning/organising meeting is scheduled for November 1. If you are interested in helping out with this regatta please contact Peter K.
