OYS Logo


May 10, 2018

The Oakville Yacht Squadron welcomes all PHRF boats, and one-design keelboats for competitive and fun on-the-water racing and a great on-shore party. Each year we have consistently excellent racing with substantial one-design turnouts – OYS is home to healthy J27 and Etchells fleets – multiple PHRF spinnaker and whitesails divisions and professional quality race management. This year OYS will be hosting the J27 North Americans and Etchells Lake Ontario Championship in addition to our growing PHRF Fleet, open to all racers. The OYS Regatta also features a Cruising division, called the Lighthouse Challenge. The Lighthouse Challenge features some fun point to point cruising and on the water activities. Racing activities are followed by post race live music, food and events hosted in our Clubhouse on Sixteen Mile Creek in the heart of downtown Oakville.
