KYC – upcoming events

   Lights in August! 

KYC is hosting a boat decorating contest on August 1st. First place prize is three premium 15 feet dock lines with chafe guards, second place is a first aid kit, and third is a rescue throw bag.  Let’s make it feel like Christmas and have a friendly competition  this coming long weekend. Judging will take place Sunday August 1st at  9:30 pm with the winners announced Monday.

      Nautical Photo Contest    

Photo opportunities abound as we sail or motor through the marina, down the channel, and across the beautiful expanse of Lake Huron.  In this contest we encourage  you to take photos celebrating sailing in Kincardine, particularly photos of boats in action.  There are two divisons: vintage and current photos.  Top prize in each division is a plaque of your photo and the honour of having your photo displayed in the Kincardine Lighthouse next season!  The photos will be celebrated on the KYC website and AGM. The contest ends September 26th.   Please  send your photos  to and include the word ‘photo’ in the subject line.
