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 48th year, is an annual tradition deeply rooted in the community and among sailors. With more than 70+ vessels participating annually, spectators and passersby were  treated to an awe-inspiring sight as participants set sail on Lake St. Clair in a 34.2-nautical-mile overnight race.
