Lake Yacht Racing Association (LYRA) announces its appointment of National One Design Sailing Academy as the host and organizing authority for the LYRA 2017 Stolze Cup Match Racing Championship, September 9-10, 2017.
The event will be based at National One Design Sailing Academy’s marine center in Bronte Harbour at 14 Bronte Road, Oakville, Ontario. Sailed aboard the Academy’s fleet of Flying Tiger 7.5m sportboats, the two-day regatta is planned to include a round robin, knock-out series, and finals. Each team of competitors will comprise 4 or 5 sailors.

The Stolze Cup is awarded annually to the regatta’s winning skipper from a LYRA member club. The winning skipper also receives an automatic invitation to compete in the Richardson Cup Match Racing Championship of the Yacht Racing Union of the Great Lakes for 2018 (the following year).

The North U Advanced Match Racing Seminar will be held on Friday, September 8. Spectators aboard their own boats are welcome to watch the action on Lake Ontario just southeast of Bronte Harbour on Saturday and Sunday. The Organizing Authority also invites Race Committee volunteers and qualified umpires, as well as others with a general interest in match racing to send Dave an email (email below).

Shrink Wrap2020 is a year of change – self-isolation, social distancing, quarantine, and working remotely have become the norm. For many, this has been a bitter pill to swallow. Another bitter pill for boaters is the delay of the season. Provincial laws differ – so terms like ‘essential’ aren’t translating widely across the marine world.

In BC, marinas remain open and fuel is available, sometimes with conditions. In Ontario, marinas, boat launches, yacht clubs and the professionals that service the marine industry aren’t considered essential, unless the service and location allows a person to access their permanent residence only accessible by boat.

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.
