2017 Georgian Bay Regatta Information

This year’s GBR promises some great sailing on Southern Georgian Bay. Mark your calendars as Registration will take place in Midland on Wednesday August 2 and the final awards dinner will take place in Thornbury on Sunday August 6.

The spirit of fun competitive racing 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 are more than welcome to attend. Some information and coaching for new racers will be provided during the Racing Seminar on Registration Day. Cruising sailors are also encouraged to attend with improved emphasis on competitive racing within the Cruising division. And of course, the Cruising division also welcomes sailors that prefer a completely laid back non-racing perspective.

The Awards Dinner this year will take place at the lovely Maiolo’s Restaurant in picturesque Thornbury harbour.

This year’s GBR will provide some fantastic days and nights “on the hook” in the Christian Island area as well as evenings tied up in Midland, Collingwood, and Thornbury. The sailing itinerary will consist of course races and distance races. The social itinerary will consist of a welcome BBQ, a themed raft party, and a ton of fun throughout the 4 day event.

This event is shaping up to be the sailing highlight of the summer of 2017.
