The Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston is organizing a C&C Yachts Reunion and Conference at the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club. The two day event is not only a chance to celebrate the history of a successful Canadian yachting story, but is also a fundraiser to help support the preservation of C&C Yachts Collection at the Marine Museum and an opportunity to gather critical information from principle participants to further enrich the Collection. All past C&C employees are encouraged to bring old photographs and memorabilia of the company for scanning, photographing or donation to add to the C&C Collection at the Museum. The names of all past C&C employees will be also added to the Museum archives.

The Reunion on Saturday evening will be open to only past C&C employees and those dealers, sail makers, and industry people most closely associated with the company from its original founding in 1969. Spouses and partners are also welcome!

The C&C Conference on Sunday will feature panel discussions by members of the C&C Design Group, C&C Production, Sales and Marketing, and a group of yachting industry professionals discussing the Legacy of C&C Yachts. Attendance to the Conference is open to everyone interested in the history and legacy of C&C Yachts. The Conference will be moderated by Maurice Smith, Curator Emeritus of the Marine Museum. Questions will be welcome from the audience. Attendance is limited to 225 people.
The C&C Collection consists of George Cuthbertson’s personal and corporate papers and the design drawings of Cuthbertson and Cassian and C&C Yachts to 1973, as well as all the drawings and a large number of files of C&C Yachts from 1973 to well into the ‘90s, when the assets of the company were acquired by Fairport Marine, builders of Tartan Yachts. Tim Jackett, formally of Fairport and Novis Marine, donated the later drawings.

The fee for the Conference includes a continental breakfast, coffee breaks and lunch, plus a one year free membership to the Marine Museum. Attendees will be encouraged to make additional donations to go towards preserving and making available this vast collection of over 25 years of Canadian yachting history and legacy.

For more information, please contact Doug Cowie, manager of the Marine Museum, manager@marmuseum.ca, or C&C Alumnus Rob Mazza, robertlmazza@gmail.com, who is helping to organize the event.

To register to attend either the Reunion, Conference, or both, go to the Marine Museum website or RHYC website. For information about the C&C Collection, and perhaps donating to it, please contact Maurice Smith at barque2@cogeco.ca.
