Guelph Community Boating Club thriving in troubled times

Since its establishment over 40 years ago, the Guelph Community Boating Club has hosted regattas and other events for sailors of all ages and abilities in a quiet, tucked away corner of Guelph Lake.
This year is no different, as the pandemic has prompted many sailors to hone their skills on the water, including those in the Learn to Sail program for youth.
“It’s great that we’ve been able to stay open and welcome our members and kids back to the club. Utilization of our facilities has just been way up,” said Adam Wright, the commodore of the GCBC.
