In Memory of the Honourable Lincoln MacCauley Alexander

The Queen City Yacht Club fondly remembers the Lieutenant Governor, the Honourable Lincoln Alexander, attending our centennial celebrations and Sail Past in 1989. He was a great man and he will be missed.

Queen City at the LO300

The Lake Ontario 300, which was sailed this past weekend starting from Port Credit Yacht Club, labels itself the “Greatest Yacht Race on the Lakes”, and it is hard to argue its “greatness”: racers complete either a full 300 nm circumnavigation of Lake Ontario, or a shorter 300 km course which still feels like most of the lake.  Queen City is always well-represented at the race, and this year four of our boats competed: Blue Streak (Rob Eckersley), Skeena, (Rick Veenhuizen), Eventide (John Ball) and Iliad (Roger Petersen).
