Three white sail races are held on Lake Ontario and one spinnaker race is held on Chesapeake Bay near Annapolis, Maryland.
The first race, in June, is the Syronelle Cup between teams from the GLAA and a team of racers from the Chesapeake Alberg Association using loaner boats. This is a two day event with three races. This year, the 2017 Syronelle Cup race will be held on the weekend of June 23rd – 25th at The National Yacht Club in Toronto.
The second race, the Triangle Cup, is usually held in conjunction with a GLAA rendezvous on Lake Ontario. Watch our events calendar for upcoming information on this race.
The third race, The Great Lakes Championship, is held in late August. The 2017 Great Lakes Championship will be held on August 26th. Location information to follow.
The Rankin Regatta race, held on Chesapeake Bay, is a two day event with three races between a team from the GLAA, with loaner boats, and and some really competitive racers from the Chesapeake Alberg 30 One Design Association.
The 2016 Rankin Regatta dates will be announced sometime in February. Watch our calendar for details to follow.
The winner of each race gets a really big trophy (for a year), a smaller trophy (that you get to keep forever and ever!) and flags are awarded as well.
While the emphasis is on racing, each race is a great social event as well. Some folks come along just for the party. If you want to experience the thrill of racing then come join one of our crews. No experience required. See our Events Calendar and Contact us today!
