Please note that all rendezvous events tentatively scheduled for the 2017 season have been cancelled due to unpredictable conditions at many of the yacht clubs in Lake Ontario.
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 two large rendezvous and smaller, informal cruising events each year.
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?
