ATHLETICS Yachting

Yachting

With its idyllic location to Lake Ontario and riverside setting, The Oakville Club prides itself on the numerous sailing activities. The Yachting membership is busy year-round and in the summer months creates an exciting atmosphere at the Club with regatta’s, cruises and races. Finish your evenings enjoying the sunset on our Dockside Patio.

DOCK SAFETY
Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and wear a life jacket at all times on the Dock and in the Dock Area. Running, playing or “horse play” on the Dock and Dock area shall not be tolerated and will result in being asked to leave the area immediately.

SAIL PAST
Sailpast marks the official opening of Sailing Season and summer at The Oakville Club. Sailpast is the traditional sailing ceremony of the “Review of the Fleet” by the Commodore. Fleets rendezvous outside the Harbour and sail in a specific order past the Commodore’s yacht to salute the Commodore. Sailpast is a traditional event for the Club. It is an opportunity to see the strength and energy of our Club, both afloat and ashore.

CRUISING
While many Members will cruise on their own at various times throughout the summer, there are a number of “group” cruises. These events – organized by the Yachting Committee – involve a coordinated multi-boat visit to another Club. Often such an event will involve a reciprocal visit with boats coming to Oakville while we are at their facility.

VISITORS
An important dimension to yachting activity is the welcome we receive when we visit other yacht clubs. Similarly, we provide excellent hospitality at the Club to the crews of visiting yachts.

PUMP OUT AND FUEL
There is a pump out facility on the east side of Sixteen Mile Creek just north of the Club property. It operates with part-time hours. The closest on-the-water fuel pumps are at Bronte Harbour. Dinghy outboards can be refilled at the Oakville Power Boat Club.
