Five days of world-class J/24 One-Design sailboat races begin Sept. 19th - 23rd on Lake Ontario off the outer shores of Lakefront Promenade Park. The event is hosted by Port Credit Yacht Club. The J/24 is the most popular racing keelboat in the world. About eighty teams, involving more than 400 top racing yachtsmen and yachtswomen will compete in this challenging ten-race series.
Go for a walk, and bring your binoculars (and zoom lens!) to view the sailing from the outer shores at Lakefront Promenade Park, 800 Lakefront Promenade, Mississauga, ON L5E 0A1. Races begin daily at 11 am and can go until 4 or so: time varies (e.g. if it’s super windy, both daily races can be finished by 2:00 pm). View cumulative results here, and the event website here.
Please welcome these international sailors to our community Sept.15-23, and support our generous sponsors making this international sporting event possible.
