Canadian Club Race

Canadian Club isn't just a great whisky, it's a renowned international sailing race hosted by 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 particpating annually, spectators and passerby were treated to an awe-inspiring sight as participants set sail on Lake St. Clair in a 34.2-nautical-mile overnight race.

WYC has elected to postpone our annual overnight race (a.ka. "Canadian Club Race") to Friday, August 13, 2021.  We hope that decision may enable additional time to reopen the border to enable participation of our US sailors and the easement of public health restrictions, especially as vaccination participation increases.
