To all Georgian Bay Sailors:
Announcing GBR 2018!
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 and visit ports on the West side of the Bay.
The 2 Regatta Concept will unfold as follows:
Pre-Regatta: July 29 to Aug 1
Lion's Head - Wiarton - White Cloud Island - Meaford
Classic Regatta: Aug 1 to Aug 5
Meaford - White Cloud Island - Thornbury - Hope Island - Midland
This year's 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. Sailors new to racing or cruising are more than welcome 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:
