Nonsuch Electric Propulsion at the Toronto INA International Rendezvous.  Jorgen Moller has volunteered his electric-powered boat, Pondus, as a gathering spot for those interested in comparing notes or learning about experiences with converting to electric propulsion.  Co-hosted by Jorgen and Bob Neches, Pondus will be open for visitors from 10:00 am to noon on Sunday, July 28th at its Royal Canadian Yacht Club slip located at dock E-5 between the haul-out and the Rainbow Bridge. 

Sailing events start on Friday July 26th. Your choices are cruising with a lunch at the beautiful Cathedral Bluffs Yacht Club or triangle course racing. We will congregate at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club on Toronto Island for a reception afterwards. On Saturday, there will be coastal race via waypoints to Mimico Cruising Club or alternative cruise ending at Mimico.   All will stay on for the dinner and dance under a tent on the club lawn.

On Sunday, July 28th, all boats will return to the RCYC either in a coastal race where visitors without boats will have a chance to be skipper or by an inventive cruise.  You have options to choose all the races, all the cruises, or the hybrid option: a mixture of the cruising and sailing events. While it is intended that all boats overnight at both clubs, we would like you to choose one or the other as your home port. Some local boats whose owners and crew are not members of either host club may choose to remain at their own clubs and may choose that option.

For racers, a Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions will follow later, as will a survey to help the organizers to create the best possible event.

Boats from the east may wish to overnight on Wednesday July 24th at Whitby Yacht Club: contact Bruce Clark bwc4884@gmail.com, and  download Bruce Clark's Cruising Guide . You may also want to download our quick summary of Rules about Taking Boats Between USA and Canada.

The organizers are using the Clubspot system.  To register using Clubspot:

  • You will need to create a Clubspot logon if you don't already have one (a simple, not uncommon procedure).
  • You'll be asked to enter information for the primary attendee first, then add name(s) for any additional crew/guests.
  • Charges are in Canadian dollars. Non-Canadians may want to check their credit cards for the lowest transaction fees.
  • You will also be charged HST which is a universal sales tax charged in Ontario.
  • After registering, you will receive a confirmation email, and will probably want to close the web page for security if you are not on a private device.
  • Please be sure to review the privacy policy so you will know what actions are needed if you have concerns about those issues. 

NOTE: early registration prices now on the Clubspot registration site are still available but will be going up soon.

Questions: nicholashirst@me.com or sailing@rcyc.ca


For those not staying on boats at either club, registrants will receive information about directions and transportation, including how to access launches from near the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel to the RCYC clubhouse on Toronto Island.
