Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club Awarded Regatta of the YEAR!

On January 28, 2011, the Canadian Yachting Association announced that Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club was the winner of the 2010 CYA Regatta of the Year. The CYA City of Kingston Regatta of the Year Award will be presented by CYA to SLSC for its hosting of the 2010 Canadian Laser Masters Championships that took place over 3 days of great sailing in July 2010.

The Masters Regatta involved a huge effort from an army of Sturgeon volunteers – it was in every way a community wide effort.  Many people provided beds to the sailors; many prepared the community breakfasts and dinners; many were on the water helping out; the harbour team got boats launched and back to shore; the scorers were timely; the prizes were wonderful…The masters sailors – aged 35 to 77- raved about the accommodations, about the meals, about the racing, about the surroundings and above all about how organized and helpful and friendly the volunteers were.  The Sailing Club extends a giant thank you to everyone who pitched in to make this regatta what it was – the best in Canada for 2010!

New Look and Feel for the SPA Web Site

You may have noticed a slightly new look to our web site. As promised, we’ve started on our task of updating the site’s features and functions. We’re working on a number of things over the winter so that the site can be more useful to our community. Part of that upgrade includes a new calendar page. Other features will be pointed out in posts like this as we roll them out.  

I invite anyone who has any suggestions or comments about what they’d like to see on the web site to submit them via email to [email protected]. I promise that we’ll read them all.
