Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club hosting the MIDS August 6th-7th

The Point continues to be an active place, even after last weekend’s busy Regatta weekend .The SLSC is hosting the 2011 Mid Ontario Regatta this weekend. This is a competitive event that attracts many young sailors from all over the Province, year after year. As a result you’ll probably notice some additional activity this weekend, both on and off the water.

The SLSC has a great reputation for putting on the regattas, and the hospitality that Sturgeon Point shows every year plays an important role. Thanks to all of you who are billeting, feeding, or otherwise helping all of the sailors and visitors to our Village this weekend.

Let’s hope for sun and wind!

If you’d like to know more about this event or the club, please visit the SLSC’s web site.
