2017 REGATTA – WILL BE HELD ON AUGUST 5TH

 

Thank you everyone for another great regatta that was held on July 30th, 2016.  We noticed growing participation in some of our races this year.  We are interested in your feedback about the regatta as we are always looking for ways to both celebrate the more than 90 year history of our regatta while also keeping it fresh.  Please email us to share your thoughts at info@glca.ca

A regatta is a series of boat races. The term typically describes racing events of rowed or sailed water craft, although we have included the land races so that all members and ages can participate.  A regatta often includes social and promotional activities which surround the days events.

Although regattas are typically amateur competitions, they are usually formally structured events, with comprehensive rules describing the schedule and procedures of the event. Regattas may be organized as championships for a particular trophy, but are often held just for the joy of competition, camaraderie, and general promotion of the sport.
