CANADIAN CLUB RACE

Canadian Club isn’t just a great whisky, it’s a renowned international sailing race hosted by the Windsor Yacht Club.

The Canadian Club Invitational Yacht race, now in it’s 47th year, is an annual tradition deeply rooted in the community and among sailors. With more than 70+ vessels participating annually, spectators and passersby will be treated to an awe-inspiring sight as participants set sail on Lake St. Clair in a 34.2-nautical-mile overnight race.

The 47th Canadian Club Invitational Yacht Race will be held on Friday June 14, 2019.

The start is always a crowd pleaser.
