Amite River Cruise @ Fred's Boat ramp
Jun 23 all-day

We’ll launch from the “newly rebuilt” and ‘free’ boat ramp at Fred’s. We’ll cruise caravan style down the Amite and through the Diversion Canal and have lunch at Lagniappe Restaurant on the Diversion. It’s about a 13 mile cruise. After lunch, we’ll cruise wherever the gang wants to go, and then return to Fred’s around 3 or 4 in the afternoon.

Want to come but can’t bring a boat? No problem, we’re arranging to have enough boats making the trip so that everyone can ride and join in on the fun!

Want to join us for lunch, but don’t have enough time for the boat cruise? Just meet us at the Lagniappe Restaurant around 11 AM. Address is 11172 River Highlands Drive, St. Amant, LA.

Antique Yachtsman’s Regatta @ Glenwood Club
Jun 23 @ 1:00 pm

What:  Antique Yachtsman’s Regatta


Where:  The Glenwood Club, Keuka Lake (about four miles up the east side from the Hammondsport launch)


When:  Saturday, June 23rd


Check-in:  1 pm at The Glenwood


Who:  Anyone that has a wooden boat (Member or Non-Member of Wine Country)


Cost:  10 per boat per couple


The idea is to cruise boats at a normal cruising speed (not racing) of each boat across a start line in synchronization with the starters’ flags.  At a time later in the cruise, when the pace boat makes an agreed upon visual signal, all boats should turn to port and proceed back to the start line at the same constant speed.  The winner is the boat which crosses the start/finish line first.  However, all boats should cross the finish line at the same time.  We will all head out from the Glenwood Club, located at 468 East Lake Road, Route 54, Hammondsport (approx. 5 – 8 miles north of Hammondsport and about 5 miles south of The Switz) and we will finish there as well.


Now, the idea here is to get everyone out on the water for a fun afternoon in their wooden boat.  Wine Country will provide hot dogs and hamburgers and everyone should bring a dish to pass and their favorite beverage.  All you will need to do is contact me, Jack Young and I will send you an enrollment form along with the “rules of the event.”  If you are not a member of Wine Country Classic Boats, that’s OK  We welcome your participation with some of the nicest folks you’ll ever meet!


Thanks and we hope to see you on June 23rd!

Toronto Chapter 38th Annual Summer Vintage Boat Show @ Muskoka Wharf
Jul 7 all-day

Title: Toronto Chapter 38th Annual Summer Vintage Boat Show


Message Details
For this year’s show, a unique theme has been selected, “Keeping the Passion Alive – A salute to the Heritage Boat Shops.”  All of us are passionate about our boats, be they mahogany, cedar strip or fibreglass. Restoring and maintaining an antique or classic or building a new reproduction requires knowledge, skills and time that the vast majority of us do not have. It is the boat shops, old and new, that keep our sport alive and our boats on the water.  So, it is fitting that we take this opportunity to honor these individuals and businesses.

Boat builders and restorers are being invited to showcase some of their past projects that demonstrate the quality of their work and commitment to excellence. These will be highlighted as the featured boats in the show.

Once again, the show will have free admission to the public and all displays will be along the waterfront. 2018 will also be a judged show, which always ensures an excellent turnout of some of the finest examples of antique and classic boats.

To broaden the appeal of the show, and classic boats in general, the show committee is working hard to grow the participation of fibreglass classics with a focus on ski boats of all makes.  All of the other attractions that make the show a fun day for the family will be back: the ride-along, the kids’ activities, antique and classic car show, the field of dreams and flea market and a growing number of vendors.

The show will kick off with three days of pre-show events that are a great way to enjoy an extended stay in Muskoka, spending more time on the water with new and old friends. Wednesday, July 4th we will be trailering to tour the chain of lakes in Huntsville, with a lunch stop in town. Thursday, participants will cruise from Gravenhurst to Bala and area on Lake Muskoka. Stops will include a boathouse tour and lunch. Friday the 6th is Poker Run Day, always a fun excursion.

See you in Gravenhurst this July!
