These funds will certainly have an impact on the women and help to support them in their sailing endeavors. It seems very appropriate and worthwhile that as a sailing club we are helping to encourage and support other sailors in their competitive pursuits. Canadian National Sailing Team member Martha Henderson was on hand to help present flags and hopes to race with us next year. The Friday evening before the race, Amanda Karahanas gave a racing seminar for all skippers and crew. Amanda is a good teacher and is able to impart her knowledge in an interesting, informative and easily understood way. All those who attended, from the experienced to the novice racer, learned something. Saturday, August 6th was a warm and sunny day with fair winds, which made for a good race. There were 21 boats in all with two visiting from National Yacht Club. We always welcome fellow women skippers from the clubs around the lake. It was a great learning experience for all skippers and crew. We had three novice skippers compete this year and again saw Spirit Warrior with an all female crew. We're delighted to have had our youngest skipper, Petre Thomas, race this year on Candy Cane. Skipper Karina Rugelis and crew Jaymee Ingall took out one of the Junior Club's 420s representing the younger members of the club. Both girls had a great race and hope to compete again next year. Amanda Karahanas sailing Special K was first in the Star fleet as well as 1st overall. Maybe one of these years Karina or Jaymee will start sailing Stars and there will be more competition in the fleet!

Congratulations to Vice Commodore Tony Pitts who won this year's Appleton's Rum putting contest. We're a little sad to report that the men won this year's tug of war, the women skippers must have been feeling a little fatigued after the race. Despite not having a "real working kitchen" Silke, Rob and their All Set Catering crew provided us with a wonderful BBQ buffet with all the trimmings including salads, fresh fruit and pie for dessert. It was decided that dancing under the stars to the music performed by Michael Keyes and his drummer was a lovely way to end the evening. I would like to thank the committee members for their ideas, support and hard work that goes into making this event come together. Joan Allison Sari Bercovitch Pam Mazza Mary Pearce Lynn Kaak Jill Stewart Glenys Squires Elaine Patterson Anita Boudreau Sandi Chung In addition, our volunteers on race day included Dawn Brennan, Fran Ford, Michele Forbes, Belinda James, Rick Hardy and many more who pitched in. We would also like to thank the QCYC staff who help us with administration, set up and clean up, and handle our numerous questions and demands! Special thanks goes to Sandi Chung for her logo and text design and to Glen Newbury for design assistance and production of our printed materials. We'd also like to recognize the skipper and crew of our crash/safety boat, John Moorehouse, John Carrol and Bobbie Dilallo photographer extraordinaire and the 420 crash boat crewed by Jacqui Cook & Eriks Rugelis. And of course, appreciation goes to our infamous race committee Graham Dougall and Elspeth Fanjoy who were joined by Laurence Concannon and Moira Burgess. It is with the very generous sponsorship of Jill Stewart and Royal LePage that we were able to provide complimentary shirts to all our women skippers and to raise some funds. For all the details of our sponsors please visit http://www.qcyc.ca/sailing/WSR/donors.html . A great day like this happens because many people offer their skills, time and energy. Thank you to everyone who helped.

The club has a long-standing reputation around Lake Ontario's sailing community for throwing great parties, in The Great Hall of our clubhouse and on the surrounding grounds which overlook Toronto harbour. Many of the parties have live bands; for others a DJ suffices to get everyone up and dancing. The season opener in April is Chili Challenge, a potluck dinner after Launch. Sailpast follows on the Saturday of the long weekend in May. Always a sold-out affair, Sailpast is one of the few formal events at Queen City - some of the men actually wear ties! The first Friday in June is reserved for New Members Night, where we celebrate the arrival of new additions to our club. Among the other events that members look forward to are Fun Day (an event for kids), LobsterFest, the Commodore's Ball, the Women Skippers Race and Pig Roast, a huge event at which over 400 delicious meals are served. Awards Night, in September, is another semi-formal occasion at which Racing flags and silverware are presented. And finally, to close the season, there is Pot Luck, which follows one of the Haulout days. With all of these great events happening on home ground, some members find it hard to find time to cruise. But Club Cruises are also eagerly anticipated social events! Once or twice a year, members band together to sail to another yacht club for the weekend. As Queen City plays host to many visitors during the summer, so are Queen City members always welcomed around the lake. Minimum Billing System Unlike other clubs at which members must spend a certain amount of money at the bar or restaurant each month, Queen City members are billed an annual amount that is used to buy tickets to many of the club events mentioned above. The amount for a Senior membership unit (whether one or two adults) is currently $150 per year and the amount for each adult in an Associate or Dinghy membership is $75 per year.

The club was more determined than ever to find a new site, and in 1920 the board finally decided to move the city clubhouse to Sunfish Island (now Algonquin Island). To endear itself to its future neighbours across the lagoon on Ward's Island, QCYC made overtures to the Ward's Island Association to participate in club activities. The possibility of QCYC's merging with Alexandra Yacht Club was also raised but discarded. The impetus to move to the Island wasn't entirely from within the club, however. In the spring of 1920, the Toronto Harbour Commission had finally begun its harbour reclamation project. Blake Van Winckle reminisces in club records that the dredging was handled by two of the biggest suction barges in the world at the time. Certainly they seemed overly efficient as far as the Queen City board was concerned. It grew increasingly alarmed over the fact that the sand the barges were slurping up was causing the harbour bottom beneath the clubhouse to shift. At about 2:30 am on July 7, the board's worst fears came true when the pilings beneath the clubhouse gave way and the three-storey clubhouse sagged into the harbour up to about the top of the first storey. Fortunately, the club steward and his family escaped. The $275 Heintzman piano and club trophies were also saved. Naturally, the clubhouse's collapse ended forever any notion of physically moving the building; it would eventually be sold as scrap for $275. But the loss of the city quarters lent a new urgency to re-establishing on the Island&#8230; Sunfish Island, QCYC's new home, was starkly different from the Algonquin Island we know today. In 1906, a plan had been hatched to create more lots on Ward's Island, then a summer tenting community, so the city could collect more rent. To improve Ward's, which was then a long spit exposed to the harbour, dredges sucked sand from along the shoreline and spewed it to the south on Ward's and to the north, creating Sunfish Island. There is a certain irony in the fact that the city clubhouse had met its end due to dredging, yet the new clubhouse was built on land created through dredging. When Queen City arrived, the only other inhabitants of Sunfish were a YMCA boys' camp and an airplane hangar at the far western end. Even as late as 1937, it was disparaged by locals as, "sand, just sand". Not until 1938 (when Sunfish Island became Algonquin Island) were houses added -- floated from Gibraltar Pt., as the current area occupied by the airport was then known. But it wasn't until the end of World War II that returning veterans occupied all the remaining lots. Many of the residents would become a valuable component of QCYC&#8230; by Wayne Lilley 1991 ISBN 1-895161-01-0 Excerpts and photos with permission from Wayne Lilley and Steve Manley QCYC - Our Spirit - History - the first sailing program Your browser does not support script history Our spirit philosophy self help club events family activity visitors history the centennial | the yard | the early years | first sailing program dances | clubhouse moves | haulout | past commodores the dances Excerpt from Centennial book, page 57: "Dances enjoyed new popularity in the post-war years. But for those members whose boats lacked sleeping accommodation and who frequently slept in the lockers beneath the Great Hall of the clubhouse, they were a trial. Marie Callingham, wife of long-time member Gil, recalls that preparing for a day on the water by getting a good night's sleep could be difficult if you had children and had to endure the pounding of jitterbuggers upstairs until the wee hours. Tom Nimmo, whose locker housed the club compass, recalls that the bouncing frequently dislodged the lightbulb in the locker he and Jean often stayed in. (The compass, incidentally, was used to swing those in the rest of the club; its reference point was the spire on St. James Cathedral in the city.) If the mixed dances were exuberant, however, the annual spring stag was toned down. A notice informed would-be celebrants that "stripteasers" would not be part of the entertainment." But in one respect, 1947 was also a sad year for Queen City. Two years before Queen City would celebrate its 60th anniversary, the remarkable Tommy World, then 85, died while serving the club as Honorary Commodore. ... by Wayne Lilley 1991 ISBN 1-895161-01-0 Excerpts and photos with permission from Wayne Lilley and Steve Manley QCYC - Our Spirit - History - the early years Your browser does not support script history Our spirit philosophy self help club events family activity visitors history the centennial | the yard | the early years | first sailing program dances | clubhouse moves | haulout | past commodores the early years Excerpt from Centennial book, page 13: " History doesn't record the atmosphere upstairs over the dinghy lockers in the boathouse at 99 and 100 Clindinning Rowon July 17, 1889. But in the 100 years since, the history of Queen City Yacht Club suggests that a sense of enthusiasm must have bathed the room. For months, a coterie of friends who'd sailed from assorted boathouses near the foot ofYork St. had bandied about the idea of forming a new sailing club. Now the plan was taking shape. At least a few of the 21 at the inaugural meeting had some connection with the Toronto Yacht Club. The TYC began life in 1850 as the Toronto Boat Club, with blue and gold as its colours. Its name changed to the Toronto Yacht Club in 1852 and then in 1854 to the Canadian Yacht Club, which would ultimately become the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. But the Toronto Yacht Club didn't disappear forever. In 1880, RCYC vacated its Toronto moorings and moved to its present Toronto Island site. Evidently not all members endorsed the move, and the same year the dissidents created the TYC, complete with its blue and gold colours. It apparently survived until 1889 when it again amalgamated with RCYC. But for reasons that remain obscure - perhaps because they still didn't want to move to the Island - some TYC members chose once more not to go along with the merger. As early as 1888 members of that group had been talking of a brand new club of their own. Even the name Queen City had been settled on, inspired by the reference to Toronto at the time as The Queen City of the Lake. By 1889, plans had become formal, with leadership provided by one T.A.E. "Tommy" World, a 27-year-old veteran of the recent Northwest Rebellion. This name would live in Queen City's history for the next 100 years." by Wayne Lilley 1991 ISBN 1-895161-01-0 Excerpts and photos with permission from Wayne Lilley and Steve Manley QCYC Club events Your browser does not support script family activity Our spirit philosophy self help club events family activity visitors history You don't get to be a 120-year-old yacht club without learning a thing or two about families. After all, Queen City has been a summer home for families of sailors for generations. Many QCYC families spend every weekend on their boats, safely moored in our sheltered lagoon. Others spend weeks at a time at the club; while one or both of the adults commute to jobs in the city, the kids enjoy Junior Club. You'll love knowing that your children are in a natural and safe environment! In addition to Junior Club, Queen City has events that are focused on the kids: Fun Day (combined with Lobsterfest) and Rubber Ducky Dinghy Race are two favourites. And there is so much to do on Toronto Island , your kids will love coming to Queen City and you'll enjoy spending time with your kids there. Here are just a few of the activities that your children will love doing: Walk, bicycle or roller-blade through the acres of Toronto Island parkland and trails Go for a swim at Ward's beach Visit Turtle Pond Spend a day at Centre Island; visit the petting zoo; go on the great rides Take a canoe or dinghy up & down the lagoons Anchor out in your boat in one of the protected anchorages in and around Toronto Islands Play on the jungle-gyms on Ward's Island Take up tennis - join the Ward's Island Tennis Club Go for an ice-cream cone at the Ward's Island caf&eacute; Join the Canoe Club or the YMCA camps Go to a youth dance on the island or one of the residents' yard sales Play frisbie golf QCYC - Our Spirit - History - the first sailing program Your browser does not support script history Our spirit philosophy self help club events family activity visitors history the centennial | the yard | the early years | first sailing program dances | clubhouse moves | haulout | past commodores the first sailing program Excerpt from Centennial book, page 22: "In its first year, QCYC had a weekly racing program for two classes, the results of which were reported, in detail, by The World, one of three major newspapers in Toronto at the time.

The first class boats were between 20 and 25 corrected length and raced from the clubhouse at the foot of York St. to the buoy at Gibraltar Point (at that time, just inside the Western Gap), then to the Eastern Gap, then to a spar buoy near Hanlan's and from there to the clubhouse buoy.

Now the spectre of haulout, inescapable since the first day of launch, has become as real as a calendar. Yet even as the Algonquin Queen pushes aside mists half hiding the lagoon's mastless fleet, the calendar blurs as past and present blend once more in the yard. As the first passengers of the day head to lockers for coveralls and gloves, Fred Mayerhofer or Pat Walton are already greasing the winch and car, even as Bobby Norton or Harry Smith might have before them. Bruce Robinson assails latecomers as "peckerheads' while near the fire tended by Barry Hardy, the infectious laugh of Ernie Middleton still seems to echo across the yard, assuring all that the "butter" will be ready to be swept onto blackened ways, today by Jim Miller or Gib Speight as cheerfully as Harry Altman would have yesterday. Butterboard. King plank. Cross-haul. Ways and sleepers. Words once mysterious and arcane have become familiar. The sounds of the yard, once a day-long cacaphony, have become discrete elements - the drone of the winch, the rumble of the car and the whine of Peter Broecker's chainsaw, cutting retired cradles into stove-sized bites. " Crowd her north!" "Where's the butter?" "Everyone on the pointy end!" The chant, repeated spring and fall, directs a brutish activity. Yet almost obscured are subtler images - Ian Douglas helping push his father's cradle, a symbol of succession. Or Herb Pitcher, pointing out to a new member what he means by the "tennis court" or the "float". In lulls, Tom Nimmo, Ray Lye and Bert Barraclough recall John Walsh, Al Rae, Tom Tomblin, George Annand and a hundred names woven through unwritten stories to be filed in memories as lore of the future. " Clear the track!" "Follow the car!" The shout, as it has each day of haulout, punctuates the late afternoon air. Bobby Peat, on hand most of his life, readies the hook that guides the last prow into a cradle. As Bill Eckersley flags signals to the winch, the final, dripping boat emerges, clumsily larger in its cradle than in the water. It trundles up the track to be slid awkwardly to winter rest. The cheer goes up and the yard chairman is toasted before groups break into individuals to join spouses already tending to the myriad mundane boat chores to be done before dark. The trip back to the city is quiet. Fatique, perhaps. Or maybe the natural sadness of season's end. But there is satisfaction, too, in having shared in the physical task, impossible alone, and at the same time having glimpsed once more the very soul of Queen City. by Wayne Lilley 1991 ISBN 1-895161-01-0 Excerpts and photos with permission from Wayne Lilley and Steve Manley QCYC - Our Spirit - History - the centennial Your browser does not support script history Our spirit philosophy self help club events family activity visitors history the centennial | the yard | the early years | first sailing program dances | clubhouse moves | haulout | past commodores the centennial In 1989, QC celebrated its centennial year. The club's second century opened in grand style in February with a Centennial Ball at the Palais Royale in Toronto. With period costumes the order of the evening, most members responded with nautical elegance reminiscent of Queen City's heritage. The year was also marked by the striking of a new burgee and the sailing of a Centennial Race. Most enduring of all the tributes was the publication of the 112-page full-colour QCYC Centennial Book, which was entirely researched, written, designed and published by QCYC members. Sections from the book are excerpted here. Anyone interested in purchasing a copy of the book, please contact the QCYC office. by Wayne Lilley 1991 ISBN 1-895161-01-0 Excerpts and photos with permission from Wayne Lilley and Steve Manley QCYC - Our Spirit - History - the haulout Your browser does not support script history Our spirit philosophy self help club events family activity visitors history the centennial | the yard | the early years | first sailing program dances | clubhouse moves | haulout | past commodores the past commodores David Hall 2002-2003 Garry Baker 2001 Norrie Macdonald 1999-2000 Moira Coull 1997-1998 David Hall 1995-1996 Wayne Smith 1993-1994 Jim Finch 1991-1992 Michael Shawyer 1990 Bill Eckersley 1988-1989 Barry Hardy 1986-1987 Klaus Noack 1983-1985 Fred Mayerhofer 1980-1982 Tom Tomblin 1977-1979 Herb Pitcher 1974-1976 Gord Proctor 1972-1973 Len Canham 1969-1971 John Welsh 1968-1969 Charlie Millen 1967 Allan J.

World 1889 QCYC Template Your browser does not support script Club Character and Philosophy Our spirit philosophy self help club events family activity visitors history Sailing is many things to many people. It is a competitive sport and a casual respite from competitive daily life, both a pastime and a passion. Sailing appeals to families, couples and individuals, to distance and day-sailors. It can be an easy-going social activity and an intense solo challenge. It can be all these things, at once or at different times. That diversity also defines Queen City Yacht Club. For more than 120 years, QCYC has proudly reflected sailing's many facets, embracing all its individual adherents, encompassing them in a unique sailing community. In fact, Queen City has become as much a part of the sailing culture as those who participate in it. Queen City is defined by its Toronto Island location, yet never restricted by it. Situated just a few minutes by club launch from the heart of Canada's biggest city, QCYC has adopted and become part of a splendid natural legacy - a car-free, park environment that offers safe, calm moorings close to a variety of sailing and cruising grounds. At Queen City, we regard air as something that contributes to our enjoyment of sailing, not something we put on. QCYC respects sailing's traditions, but formality is never allowed to stand in the way of conviviality. Our historic Algonquin Island clubhouse, lovingly maintained, has welcomed members and guests since 1921 with a hospitality that is renowned on Lake Ontario. Although smaller in membership than most yacht clubs on Lake Ontario, Queen City's characteristic "can-do" attitude expresses itself as a presence that far exceeds the club's size. Our participation in sailing and social activities, as racers and cruisers within the Lake Ontario sailing community and beyond, is second to none. And an exceptionally high number of members have experience that extends to blue-water cruising beyond the Great Lakes. Queen City is a self-help club, operated by all members who routinely share in its upkeep. More than simply an economical means of maintaining our facility - and members' access to affordable sailing - the philosophy engenders a cooperative spirit that translates into a comfortable atmosphere for members and guests alike. We have reason to believe that the approach, nurtured by a heritage of more than a century, is as valid today as it was in 1889 when the club was founded. Certainly our members are no less committed to or enthusiastic about sailing and their club than were previous generations of members. The Island ambience and sailing life at QCYC continue to attract members to their boats for entire weekends and as liveaboard commuters throughout the summer. And it may not be coincidental that Queen City annually entertains more boats from visiting clubs than any other yacht club on Lake Ontario. QCYC self help Your browser does not support script Self-Help Our spirit philosophy self help club events family activity visitors history Queen City is a self-help yacht club. The culture of QCYC has always been, and continues to be, defined by members sharing in the club's work. More than simply an economical means of maintaining our facility, the philosophy engenders a cooperative spirit that has forged many deep and long-standing friendships. In 1998, Queen City adopted a mandatory work-hours program. According to this plan, each Senior membership unit (whether one or two adults) contributes 12 hours of work to the club, each Senior Associate membership unit (whether one or two adults) contributes 6 hours of work to the club and each Associate, Dry Sail or Intermediate member contributes 6 hours (whether one or two adults) of work to the club. Hours not worked are billed at $30 per hour. The club prides itself on its 'can-do' philosophy and its ability to overcome major obstacles or problems that once in a while come its way. The system encourages everyone, even the New Members, to get involved, make a contribution and meet and mingle. There is a financial incentive for everyone to do their part: if the minimum number of hours is not worked, we will send you a bill! But we would certainly rather everyone got involved. We find that members usually have a great time &#8220;putting in their work hours&#8221;. Work-hours may be 'earned' in many ways: Ongoing maintenance of the club such as yard cleanup, painting, moorings Committee work (newsletter, race committee, membership and others) Sitting on the Board of Directors Major one-time projects such as installing windows, building a new deck Associate, Dry Sail, Senior Associate and Intermediate members may also earn hours by assisting at Launch and Haulout. Senior members are also required to : Participate in Launch and Haulout of their boats Be Officer of the Day (one shift every year or so) QCYC Family activities Your browser does not support script visitors Our spirit philosophy self help club events family activity visitors history Fees | Reservations | Officer of the Day | Arrival | Power | Restaurant | Facilities | Events 2004 Mooring Fees : Queen City is happy to extend the privileges of our club to senior members in good standing of other reciprocal yacht clubs.

Club event Listings QCYC - Our Spirit - History - the yard Your browser does not support script history Our spirit philosophy self help club events family activity visitors history the centennial | the yard | the early years | first sailing program dances | clubhouse moves | haulout | past commodores the yard Excerpt from Centennial book, page 11: The anticipation is palpable. Preparations that only weeks ago seemed impossible to complete in time have somehow been done. In the yard, tarps have been rolled and stored, the last of the bottom paint applied. As the Queen empties, the throb of the winch's determined diesel, loud in the still chilly morning, will fade into the background, yet keep the rhythm of the launch. "Pushers!" Knots of coveralled workers, scattered under leafless trees, respond into teams at the clarion of the weekend. The crack of butterboards being broken free punctuates the hiss of the car gliding down the track. Hands seek space on the cradle. Pushers lean poised as hawsers are tied on. " One! Two! Three! Heave!" Ropes go taut as the refrain begins&#8230;then slack as the stubborn cradle remains in place. Mock accusations are hurled and the cry goes up again. "One! Two! Three! Heave!" Forty strain. Unable to resist the effort, boat and cradle finally inch forward, now seemingly carried by cries of "Keep her going!" Backs straighten in brief respite as the cradle rests on the car. "Chain her down! Clear the track!" The car with the first boat of the season rolls toward the lagoon and a summer's pleasure. The ritual will be repeated many times over the coming days, as it has thousands of times. Anachronistic, almost deliberately defiant of technology, even as sailing is to power. And yet, comforting and dependable, even elegant in its functional simplicity, a process to benefit each, possible only through the contribution of all, a metaphor that has defined Queen City for 100 years. by Wayne Lilley 1991 ISBN 1-895161-01-0 Excerpts and photos with permission from Wayne Lilley and Steve Manley Index of /spirit/_notes Index of /spirit/_notes Name Last modified Size Description Parent Directory 11-Apr-2006 19:02 -

You would not believe how green everything is. When we left in April, it was the end of the dry season. The wind stirred spirals of red dust and rattled the seed pods on shriveled bushes. The trees had no leaves. There were flowers everywhere. Now it is the end of the rainy season. We are on our way to St David&rsquo;s from the airport under low swirling cloud. Rain batters the banana leaves. School kids in uniform hold exercise books in plastic bags over their heads. Minibuses stamp in every puddle at the road&rsquo;s edge. The shining tarmac dives into a ravine where you get that sour, piggy smell of river. Houses are scattered about like surprises, peeping out from the greenery. There are few flowers. We will soon be there. How has our little boat survived the hurricane season? Was it blown off its stands to lie, punctured, on its side? Did thieves smash in the hatch and rip out the GPS? Are the cushions black with choking mildew, the chart books sodden, wrinkled, their pages stuck hopelessly together? It is absurd that we should be worrying about this only now.

Whether the maxim is true in general, it has been for generations of Queen City racers on Wednesday nights when the club's weekly races take place. Over the summer, the club races consist of three separate series. QCYC's mixed fleet is divided into separate starts, according to ratings following the Lake Ontario PHRF handicapping system. With the emphasis on participation and fun, skippers routinely invite aboard newcomers to racing, many of whom quickly become converts. Queen City's club racing is also open to all members and guests of reciprocal clubs. QCYC members are also eligible to participate in the Lake Ontario Racing Conference and the more avid racing members compete in LORC events throughout the summer. One of the high points of the LORC series, as much for the party afterwards as for the racing, is the Queen City Open event, hosted annually by QCYC. Many QCYC members are also successful participants in single-, double-handed and fully crewed long-distance races held on Lake Ontario. And QCYC is typically well represented at events such as the annual Youngstown Level Regatta. In addition to the formal racing, special events have become a tradition at Queen City. The annual Women Skipper's Race , now in its 30th year, typically attracts more than 30 boats that race over a course that begins in the harbour and includes some tight tacking and rounding of a buoy in the lake before finishing back in front of the club. During the season, competitors can acquire points towards eligibility to compete in the day-long Champion of Champions regatta in September to determine the club champion. The Last Chance Cup, open to all QCYC boats, is held the afternoon of the annual Awards Night in September when flags and trophies for performance over the season are given out.
