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!
