The Toronto 505 fleet (Fleet 14) continues to be active with some half a dozen boats at the Outer Harbour Centreboard Club (www.sailohcc.ca) and interest from new members and other dinghy sailors wishing to try the best centreboard boat.
Races are held twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, in a fleet composed mostly of older 505s but that doesn’t make the racing any less keen. As the fleet grows, so does the competition! Tuesday night’s race is followed by a dinner (with wine) and shooting the breeze with the other racing classes. We also compete in mixed club events both in the Outer Harbour and on the lake.
The club hosts an annual 505 open regatta – for 2006 it is the Eastern Canadian Championship on July 15th/16th – with spectacular views of the Toronto waterfront from out on Lake Ontario. We can also guarantee trapezing conditions! Look us up – there are still a few membership spots open at the club.
