It's less than 4 months until your boat will be back in the water....stop thinking about the cold and start thinking about the Georgian Bay Regatta
This year's GBR promises some great sailing on Southern Georgian Bay. Your GBR Committee has listened to your input and we have put together a very exciting Regatta for 2018. We have concluded that the 'Short' regatta of 4 days is preferred by many, but a significant number of sailors would like to participate in a longer event adn visit ports on the west side of the Bay.
The 2 Regatta Concept will unforld as follows:
Pre-Regatta: July 29 to August 1
Lions Head ~ Wiarton ~ White Cloud Island ~ Meaford
Classic Regatta: August 1 to August 5
Meaford ~ White Cloud Island ~ Thornbury ~ Hope Island ~ Midland
The new format is very flexible. You can choose between sailing 3 days, 4 days, or 7 days. You can start in Lion's Head or Meaford. And you can finish in Meaford or Midland. We will be visiting the Bruce Peninsula, Georgian Bay's south shore, and the beautiful islands near Midland.
The spirit of fun competitive racing or cruising is the mainstay of the GBR. The boats will sail as a fleet, ensuring safety, while providing a confidence boosting experience in open water. All sailors; new to racing or cruising, or more experienced are encouraged to attend.
The GBR is THE way to race or cruise the beautiful southwest and/or southeast areas of Georgian Bay.
The Georgian Bay Regatta Motto:
Competition ~ Camaraderie ~ Confidence
