The Ottawa fleet is strong and growing. We have 17 boats in the Nepean Sailing Club yard and at least 2 of those will be new boats on the line this year for Wednesday night club racing. We usually get about 10 boats for local club racing. The majority of the 505’s in Ottawa are at the Nepean Sailing Club (NSC) http://www.nsc.ca/nsc.htm and there are a few at the Lac Deschenes sailing club as well.
The 505’s participate in 2 local regattas put on by the NSC every year. These are the Nepean One Design and the Fanfare Regatta.
Ottawa fleet members often travel to Eastern regattas in Kingston, Toronto and the Eastern Seaboard. Some crossed the continent in 2004 for the North Americans and Worlds in Santa Cruz, USA.
Ottawa is active, growing, and would love to include anyone who is interested in 505 sailing in the Ottawa area.
