The 2022 racing calendar and duty schedule is now up under the Racing Tab on our website(here). Mike's done an amazing job getting volunteers signed up for the weekly races all the way out to mid-June already but there are still opportunities to volunteer as the Race or Safety Officers after that. Just click the "Click to email to sign up" beside the race you are interested in on the Duty Schedule
The club requires all masts to be raised no later than June 1st. By raising your mast you help remove additional obstacles as members move their boats around the compound and head to the water. Appreciate your help with this.
Reports are that this cruise was organized via the clubs WhatsApp group (reach out to our Facilities Officer Dave Haight who manages it) and while all participants were promised "a three hour tour" no one minded a slightly longer voyage given the fun had by all on one of the Toronto Island beaches.
A couple people have mentioned the article on the Performance Sailor / Canadian Yachting linked below to me as something that might be of interest to our members. Not being much of a racer myself I can't say for sure but with the cold winter days keeping us inside right now I thought I'd share it incase some of our avid racing sailors would enjoy it.
Hopefully this is of interest and i you are interested the rule book should be available at Fogh Marine or your favourite marine shop.

Since COVID19 has caused many programs available to children and youth this summer to be cancelled, including our offering of Ontario Sailing’s BOOM program the Kingston Yacht Club Academy (https://academy.kingstonyachtclub.com) has created a new innovative way to learn and improve sailing and water knowledge online.
Through interactive Zoom seminars, virtual regattas and videos lessons participants can stay engaged and occupied throughout the summer. The most amazing thing about this generous offer from KYC is it’s all offered at no cost.
