Raft PartyThe LSYC Raft Party Race is happening on June 29th, 2019! This will be the ultimate resurgence of partying and sailing in the Lake Ontario racing scene. Partnered with Parker Media Management, we wanted to get back to the roots of a great regatta; which emphasizes great racing, an awesome party and growing comradery. Our back to basics approach was inspired by the legendary Levels Regattas; which included tough competition, cheap drinks, rocking music and good times.

With the help of our amazing sponsors we have the opportunity to elevate our event without passing on the costs to our competitors. At only $75 Early Registration Participants will enjoy an afternoon of offshore racing followed by the Official Raft Party! Our Boss Supplements swag bag is packed with over $200 of freebies including a custom Raft Party Race Fast Mask UV Face Shield for the ENTIRE CREW! Sailors can register on YachtScoring – Not a Racer? No Problem! We have a Cruising Division geared up for those who just want to have some laid-back fun! One Design Fleets are welcome as well – reach out if you want to make the party of the season. All classes with 5+ boats will be scored One Design!

Come back and raft up for the evening at LSYC and take advantage of our Canada Day Long Weekend Party on Saturday night! Beaches Beer, Viritus Vodka and our favorite rum will keep us refreshed all night long while busting a move to FiddleStix and DJ On Top from Sound Collective!

Hungry? No problem! We’ve got Chrome on the Range Food truck there all night to keep you fueled, along with our FREE late-night pizza! At the end of the day we just want to keep the party going for racers of all ages, while making sure the younger crowd is represented. Expect good music, laser lights, giveaways, pro bartenders, flip cup, and premium drinks.

The Best Regatta Party you’ve been to in a long time – that you hopefully remember!

Drain LocationSometimes life gets in the way of boating. A summer wedding, family get-together, or (heaven forbid) work forces you to cancel a weekend on the water.

As summer turns to fall, the excuses tend to get easier. Boat priorities tend to fall further and further down the to-do list. Before you know it, it’s the second week of November, and the first frost (or freeze) of the season has come and gone. But, because boating priorities became less important, you forgot to get your boat winterized.

J99By Katherine Stone

All set to pull out the Code 0 before dousing the jib.

It was a very cold and wet beginning to the summer and we never thought it would arrive in Southern Ontario. Doing a 100 miler race on Lake Ontario (billed as the COOLEST race on the lake) with my 8 layers of thermal clothing, woolen ski toque and ski mittens, along with a neck warmer kept me on the edge all night, just out of frostbite reach. I shouldn’t have complained, as we also had wind!

July and August arrived, and it has certainly warmed up, in fact, its too warm, AND we don’t have wind. We are now counting 5 Wednesday nights in a row without wind to race.

KingstonBy Amy Hogue

Cruise into the city of Kingston, Ontario, and it will quickly become clear that this city and surrounding waterways have something special. Built around the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Kingston is the place to go if you love to explore new waterways, fantastic views, and exceptional boating opportunities.

Sitting at the intersection of three world-class Canadian bodies of water, Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal (Cataraqui River from Kingston to Newboro), the water’s influence is deeply woven into Kingston’s culture and history.
