OPENING UPDATE 

May 23, 2020

The club is now open!

The province has allowed boat clubs to reopen for recreational boating, and GRCA has opened Guelph Lake for limited day use including boating as of Saturday, May 23.

Please remember that access and use of the club is at your own risk, and we are obliged to comply with all provincial regulations.

Physical distancing measures are still in place. Please observe the following while at the club:

  1. Maintain a distance of 2 metres from anyone not a member of your household;
  2. Park at least 2 metres away from other vehicles;
  3. Bring sanitizer, wipes, masks, and gloves as needed;
  4. Sanitize the gate lock and any communal items touched both before and after use;
  5. Pack out any garbage; and,
  6. Please sanitize hands and wipe all contact surfaces both before and after using the port-a-potties.

As at this time, we are unable to use the club house or the co-op shed. Benches and picnic tables may be used, so long as the 2 metre distance limit is respected with non-members of your household. The group gathering limit is 5 people.

The above restrictions are by no means a complete list, merely the highlights. Please refer to the Government of Ontario website for a complete list. At all times there is an expectation that common sense will be used, and respect for each other's health and safety will be given.

Please assume that the person before you has not sanitized the gate lock nor any other surface at the club.

All active members should have received the 2020 gate codes with their membership confirmation email.

Please ensure your membership is up-to-date in order to receive updates and have access.  Renew memberships here

Early bird membership has been extended until June 1 - please use discount codes 2020EARLYBIRD or 2020EARLYBIRDSTUDENT when renewing.

Those experiencing financial difficulty renewing memberships are asked to contact the membership director by private email: membershipgcbc@gmail.com.

Though it may be from a distance, we look forward to seeing you out on the water this year.


LEARN TO SAIL 

We offer 5 separate week of sailing instruction for children ages 8-15. A range of levels will be taught based on ability. 


THE CO-OP 

The Co-op program allows you to use club boats if you don't own your own. It is also a great way to meet other members and enjoy the beautiful grounds.


RACING AT GCBC

Racing is the fastest way to hone your sailing skills and get to know the other members. Everyone is welcome regardless of skill level or experience.


CANOES & KAYAKS

The Guelph community Boating Club also offers Windsurfing, Canoeing, Kayaking and Rowing. Store your own craft with us or become a member and use one of ours!
