New Race to Kingston Coming to Lake Ontario This Summer

SinC Race to Kingston

Dec 24, 2021

Kingston Yacht Club and Mimico Cruising Club have joined forces to co-host the new destination distance race, Race to Kingston. The new adventure will kick off on August 12, 2022 at Mimico Cruising Club with good drinks and good food. The race will begin the following Saturday morning on August 13th, 2022 with racers ending in scenic Kingston, Ontario.

Chris Bobyk, Fleet Captain at Mimico Cruising Club, shares “At MCC racing is a passion and we are delighted to be part of this destination race in partnership with KYC and North Sails to the premier destination on the lake, the City of Kingston.”

The idea for the destination distance race came from long time sailor and industry supporter Hugh Beaton. “Kingston is the perfect place to finish a distance race – downtown harbours within walking distance to restaurants and plenty of opportunity for competitors to mingle after the race. As we see with the other Great Lakes classics, this is a winning formula.”

“KYC is excited to team up with MCC and North Sails for this long-awaited destination race. Joining Western and Eastern ends of the lake, racers and cruisers, families and friends, Race to Kingston is the perfect way to experience the City of Kingston and 1000 Islands.” adds Glenn Warner, Vice Commodore of Kingston Yacht Club.

Registration will be available shortly on Yachtscoring. More details to follow.
