Dinghy docks buzzing with I14s Robyn Ross
Over three years in the making and we are nearly at kick-off for the I14 Worlds. The first few teams from Australia, the UK, and Germany have arrived to test out the Lake Ontario conditions. Three-time world champion, Archie Massey is out training in full force. We’ve had a great front move through just in time, nice and breezy all week long.

The Royal Canadian Yacht Club is buzzing with preparations for the over 300 competitors, spectators and media expected on the island over the next two weeks. The renovated dinghy shed is finally finished, complete with a modern media center to host debriefs and on-land training sessions.



We encourage all boaters in the GTA to come out and watch the racing. Team racing will take place in the harbour off the RCYC dinghy docks, Sept. 9/10. Fleet racing is located just outside the Eastern gap, September 14th to Sept. 21st. One race a day with first gun scheduled for 1:00 pm.

We are grateful to have worked with so many devoted sponsors for this regatta. For a full list of all the sailing friendly companies out there, please check out our website
