| January 24: Women in Wind Cruisers Evening

"Cruisers evening" start time 5:30
The premise is that everyone who has travelled any distance on a boat will have secret recipes to success, and we thought it would be nice to invite everyone to share their 1-3 absolute must haves on a boat. This would open up the floor to everyone, the newbies and the salty dogs, the gung ho cruisers and the less so. We open it up to anything and everything that makes a good cruise; engine must-haves, favourite recipes or life-saving foods, best games to have, essential books, must have gear, awesome on board wines and the list goes on!

| January 25: Robbie Burns Scotch Tasting

Please be advised the Robbie Burns Scotch Tasting is now SOLD OUT.

Present
The first of a five-part Speaker Series
Kingston's Regional Maritime History
Pre-Columbian (1500) to Loyalist Settlements (1784)
A presentation by David More
at the
Kingston Yacht Club
1 Maitland St.
Wednesday, February 7, at 7:00 pm

 

The early days in Kingston's Maritime History will be vividly portrayed in a slideshow that takes participants on a voyage beginning with Indigenous canoes and continues through the first sailing vessels on the Great Lakes. It explores the characters of the near-century-long French regime at Fort Frontenac, from Sieur de La Salle to René-Hippolyte La Force, Canada's first native-born naval flotilla commander. After the Seven Years' War the story shifts to the important British Revolutionary War fort and shipyard at Carleton Island (just south of Wolfe Island), and the tragic loss of the Provincial Marine warship Ontario, then finally returns to what became British Kingston, when Loyalist refugees settled here.
