Since 1958, the annual Regatta has been the highlight of the summer. This event is held on Saturday and Sunday of the August long weekend. If weather doesn’t co-operate, each day’s events get moved to the following day with holiday Monday as the back-up.
The Regatta’s success is due to the many volunteers who bring their enthusiasm and energy every year to the residents and visitors of the lake.
Saturday’s popular events include: the best-dressed canoe parade, water races, such as canoeing and swimming; various “landlubber events” such as horseshoes, nail driving, egg toss, candy run, three-legged race and leap frog, which take place at Half-Moon Bay. There is also an art show held at the Community Hall/Library
This year the Sunday events (except sailing) will be held at Half Moon Bay in MacDonald Bay. The canoe/kayak marathon, volleyball competition and waterski competition will all be held on or near the public beach in MacDonald Bay. The events run from noon to 5 pm. A portable ski course will be set up that morning and removed after the competition is finished. This change of venue from previous years will provide a new viewpoint for these exciting events.
Please note that the permanent ski course will remain in Connor Bay on the north side of Long Island.
To participate as a contestant in the sailing events, or to volunteer , email Michael Worswick michael.worswick
Volunteers are needed as always to help run the events both days….the programs will be ready by early July. We are still hoping to find more pictures from 1958 – 1970.
Thank you in advance for your co-operation and we hope you enjoy the Regatta!
