Snow Cloud Painting

The 2012 AGM November 29 was the time and venue for the unveiling of the beautiful painting of the Kingston Ice Yacht Club iceboat "Snow Cloud".
The existence of this painting only came to light this past summer when the original donor, long-time Club member Mr John Weatherall, asked about its whereabouts. Rescued from storage and properly framed, it now hangs above the fireplace in the Partridge Room at the Club.
The photo shows Mr. Weatherall and Club Archivist David Page doing the honours.

Family Christmas Party a huge success!

Special thanks to the Queen's Sailing Team, and the many volunteers that made the 2012 KYC Family Christmas Party a huge success! Over 25 kids joined in the fun of making puppets, doing crafts, playing games, singing with Jeff Lamothe, opening a piñata, and welcoming Santa Claus to KYC's second floor! Cheers to a fun event to start off the holiday season:).

The Results Are In 
Sail Canada (formerly CYA) has announced the results for the 2012 Sail Canada Awards.
