Picton Jazz Festival Cruise

An annual favourite! The annual KYC Jazz Cruise brings boaters and non-boaters alike to the Picton harbour for a weekend that includes a catered dinner (BYO), a Picton Jazz Festival concert and usually one other evening activity. 2018 will be the 11th year that KYC Cruisers have held this event and there has always been a decent fleet of participants. If weather permits, there is an overnight rendezvous along the way for boaters that can get on the water ahead of the weekend.  For jazz enthusiasts, the Picton Jazz Festival draws high caliber musicians who perform at different  venues around town. For others, it is enough just to browse through the bookstore, check out the new shops on Main Street or drop into the many cafes and restaurants. Participants will be asked to order their own tickets for the selected weekend show (more details to follow) and information about the dinner and other activities will be advertised to club members to “opt in”. Details will be shared in the Knotmeter as more details for this year’s Jazz Festival become available.

Thanksgiving at Jemmett’s: All Comers Event

For most of us, a last good sail and weekend away to enjoy our Club property. Potluck Thanksgiving supper early on Sunday afternoon. Will the famous “Road Kill Turkey” make a reappearance? A great way to close out another season on the water.
