Wednesday Night Race Series

The passion of sailing is front and centre during Windsor Yacht Club's famous Wednesday nigh sailboat races.  Some 50 crews race around marks in Lake St. Clair weekly, delighting onlookers as they finish directly in front of WYC.  After the races, the crews belly up to the bar at WYC and enjoy the camaraderie of their fellow sailors and hatch tall tales about their racing prowess over a pint and burgers.


This year races are scheduled to be held between May 26th, 2021 and September 29th, 2021.

Due to the closure of the Canadian / US border and restrictions associated with Ontario's Stay-at-Home Order, we have adjusted our Spring Series, including # of races and courses. Once the border reopens, we will immediately return to our standard race program.  However, for now, participation in the Spring Series is temporarily restricted to Canadian vessels only. For more information, refer to the updated NOR (amendment 1) and Sailing Instructions.
