Cruise Coordinators: Troy Surrett (Spirit Warrior)

We are Going The Distance! -

Ready to actually GO SOMEWHERE? Kinda scared to do it on your own? Want to eat lobster at a different yacht club??? Are you thinking about one day heading East "down the lake" to explore Prince Edward County? This is what you've been waiting for! The 2024 QCYC Cruise to Frenchman's Bay!

Frenchman's Bay is a beautifully protected harbour located next to the super new to Pickering Nuclear Generating Station. The club has a great kitchen and awesome barbecues to enjoy into the evening with your QCYC friends. The next morning, we will lead you to a magical spot for lobster rolls which I can personally attest, do taste better on the beach!

Frenchman's is also the usual stopping point for a multi-day trip into Prince Edward County and onwards to the Thousand Islands. If that trip is on your bucket-list, then this cruise is a great building block towards achieving your sailing goals, or it can be the perfect way to start off on your epic journey! If you're new to cruising and need help, I will sit down with you in the lead-up to the cruise to help you with planning and weather analysis.

And remember: if you ask you can go the night before, or stay an extra day. And if you can't come on your own boat, we can help find you a boat or you can always drive up and enjoy the party!
