As the song goes – See you in September – It may seem like a long way away but the Beneteau First 36.7 2011 North American Championship in Toronto September 8, 9, 10 and 11 is an event that should be in your calendar.

Beneteau First 36.7s representing Quebec City, Long Island Sound, Chesapeake Bay, Kingston, Chicago, Detroit, Sarnia, Erie, PA, Buffalo, Rochester, Youngstown and other clubs on Lake Ontario and Lake Erie have taken the charge to race in Toronto. This is the very first time the NA’s have been held in Canadian waters. The registration of 32 boats as of Feb.28 is unheard of. Take a peek at the website to check out what’s happening at this very special event. (www.2011beneteau367northamericans.com). With only 5 months to go, the organizing committee is expecting between 40-50 boats. Can you imagine what the start line will look like?


The National Yacht Club in Toronto successfully fended off several bids from well known US clubs and a couple of Canadian clubs to win the bid to host this special Marquis big boat event. Past hosts of this event include the New York Yacht Club, the Annapolis Yacht Club, the Buffalo Yacht Club, Bayview Yacht Club, and the Chicago Yacht Club – the National Yacht Club will join these first class venues.

The Beneteau First 36.7 has been one of the most successful big boat classes to emerge in the last decade with over 850 boats world wide, with 350 in North America. The North American Championship generates wide spread interest wherever it is held. Plans are underway to have spectator boats so that you can experience the excitement up close.


The organizing committee has planned something for everyone from owners and crew to family and friends. In addition to spectator boats, there will be fun filled shore activities. See you in Toronto September 8 – 11!
