Charlottetown Race Week :
Celebrating 30 years of Keel Boat Racing
Come for the Sailing, Join the Tradition
In 1984, Commodore Doug Hambly and the CYC Executive began to discuss hosting a major sailing event to be held the following summer and in July of 1985, the first annual Charlottetown Regatta and Race Week was presented. The event successfully attracted visiting boats from various clubs across the Maritime Provinces who were treated to a week of excellent racing and entertaining social and family events.
This year, the longstanding tradition of great competition and good fun will continue as the CYC celebrates the 30th year of the event from July 16 -18. To help us celebrate we invite you and your crew to bring your families and help us make 2015 the best event yet.
If hard core spinnaker racing is not for you, come and be a part of our White Sail fleet which provides a wonderful opportunity to enjoy time on the water with family and friends in the beautiful Charlottetown Harbour while secretly exercising your competitive streak! See the Charlottetown Race Week web page for more information and details on the competitive, social and family events being offered. http://www.cyc.pe.ca/charlottetown-race-week.html
Stayed tuned for future CYC announcements and watch the calendar below.
