The Canoe Bay Sailing Club was formed in 1969 with the idea that yacht racing could be inexpensive, uncomplicated and available to everyone.
We believe in the K.I.S.S Principal - Lots of racing - $30/yr.
In Memory of Gordie Inglis
Gordie, one of the founders of the Canoe Bay Sailing Club, was a gruff old sailor with a heart of gold. Every racer I know has, at one time or another, watched the stern of Gordy's boat as he crossed the finish line.

A big thanks to Darryl and My Tai and the SNSYC for dropping some pretty skookum marks at Kerr Is., the Spit and James Is. Their positions are listed below and are approximate.
NOTE: More thanks to Daryl , he replaced the James Island mark (#4) - this one is a red scottsman, not to be confused with the the chief engineer of the Enterpirse. Lat/Long has been updated.
