Our first rendezvous of 2020 has been confirmed for the July 4th/5th weekend. It will be hosted by the Port Credit Yacht Club. Keep an eye on our calendar. All members of the GLAA as well as friends and family are welcome. Whether you come by sail or by land, plan to come by and visit the gang. More information on this and other events will be posted as it becomes available.
In the meantime, drop by the PCYC website to find out more about the location and facilities they offer.
THE GORDON PROCTOR CRUISING TROPHY
The Gordon Proctor trophy is presented to the Alberg vessel that has completed a challenging cruise of interest and for which the owner of the vessel has displayed competent and meritorious seamanship and who presents a log of that cruise to the Great Lakes Alberg Association Board of Directors for consideration.

Alberg designs make wonderful boats, not only for family cruising but for the single handed cruising sailor as well. Many have logged circumnavigations, transatlantic crossings and southern ocean voyages with their Carl Alberg designed boats. The GLAA hosts an annual Summer Rendezvous at a location on Lake Ontario, and members are encouraged throughout the Summer or organize their own informal cruises with other members (and Albergers who might be interested in becoming members) and their families.
For a new member or potential Alberg owner to readily find out what the GLAA is all about, participating in these gatherings provides a great way to do just that …getting together with fellow Alberg sailors, having a lot of fun sharing stories about their beautiful boats and the Association they are members of….. who knows what useful information one may come across!
Keep an eye on our calendar and all of these web pages. Change is in the wind and spring is upon us. Can launch day be too far off?
