Get out on the Water!

The 2016 Sailing Season is off to another great start with a number of fun events for you to GET OUT ON THE WATER!  Whether you are a sailor, want to learn or just love to watch the excitement of a regatta there are plenty of opportunities for you to enjoy the sport.  All of the Muskoka Sailing Clubs are keen to introduce you to sailing, participate in the races or join as a social member.  It’s a great way to meet people on the lake, make friends for life and spend time outside and on the water.  Check with your local club for a TRY IT day near you!

Events on the calendar this summer include the MLA Muskoka Inter-Club Youth Sailing Regattas held on July 12th and 19th at eight Muskoka sailing schools, culminating in the MLA Muskoka Youth Sailing Championship at South Muskoka Sailing School on July 26th where 48 athletes will compete for the coveted Aphrodite Cup.  The annual MLA Sailing Regatta, open to all fleets, will be held at Muskoka Lakes Golf and Country Club, Lake Rosseau on Sunday July 31st. The MLA Muskoka Laser Open Regatta will be held at the Kettles, Lake Muskoka, on August 20 and 21.

Several of the sailing clubs in Muskoka host their own regattas and sailing schools continue to offer programs for young sailors between the ages of 6 and 16.  Private and Semi-Private lessons can also be arranged.   For a full list of clubs, events and sailing programs, visit our website at www.mla.on.ca under Boating & Sailing – Muskoka Sailing Clubs or contact us at sailing@mla.on.ca

We hope to see you on the water!
