I have a boat but need crew! I want to race but need a boat!
Then visit the online racing roster to:

Annual Races Organized by the GLAA
The GLAA organizes four A30 races each season. The dates for each race will be posted on the Calendar as soon as they are set.
Three white sail races are held on Lake Ontario and one spinnaker race is held on Chesapeake Bay near Annapolis, Maryland.
- The first race, held 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 2018 Syronelle Cup race will be held on the weekend of June 23rd – 24th 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.
- The third race, The Great Lakes Championship, is held in late August. The 2018 Great Lakes Championship will be held on August 25th at The National Yacht Club in Toronto.
- The fourth race, The Rankin Regatta, is a two day event held on Chesapeake Bay. There are three races between a team from the GLAA (using loaner boats) and some really competitive racers from the Chesapeake Alberg 30 One Design Association.
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 Calendar and contact us for more information today!
