Bash Logo If you miss the good ol’ days of fun and frivolity in sailboat racing, if you’ve never raced your sailboat, if you’re a powerboater or even if you don’t have a boat but love to crew or party by the water, then you must set Saturday June 23rd on your calendar!

We are thrilled to announce that the Port Credit Yacht Club will be hosting the Toronto Area Hospice Regatta (TAHR) again in 2018. The TAHR is a charity sailing event with net proceeds going to support a local hospice. The beneficiary of the 2017 TAHR was the Ian Anderson House, located on the Mississauga/Oakville border. The $57,000 we the event to the IAH was the largest amount ever raised by a third party fundraiser in their 20 year history!

BASH Perseverance WinningThe TAHR will feature both a one-design sport boat circle alongside a fun, pursuit start “Hospice Handicap” point-to-point race on Saturday June 23rd. The Hospice Handicap will have something for everyone from the avid racing enthusiast to the family cruiser, rookies to pros inclusive. We’re even calling on all power boats to both play a role in this unconventional sailboat race and/or compete themselves in the challenge. The regatta will attract 40-60 boats resulting in over 400 competitors, friends, family and yacht club members participating in both on and off water activities.

Once again, Cruisers Yachts is leading the market for day boats with their new 42 GLS model that premiered at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show at the end of October.

So You Want to be a Better BoaterBy Amy Hogue

The COVID-19 pandemic has created unexpected changes in our lives, impacting everything from boating to vacations and these trends look to continue into the future.

In summer 2020, those trends were seen in the unprecedented numbers of boaters flocking to marinas and boat launches seeking a COVID-friendly vacation on the water.
