PCYC is one of Lake Ontario’s premier yacht racing clubs. Monday night races are for those relatively new to the sport, Wednesday is for the more seasoned, and Thursday night for the hardcore J24 racers. It’s one of the few clubs on the lake that races 3 times per week. This does not include the many other race events held at PCYC on the weekends.
PCYC boasts many famous sailors such as Derek Hatfield of Spirit of Canada who is currently racing around the world single handed in the Vendee Globe. Rossi Milev of Clean Air, North American J24 Champion for 2008, Olympic Silver Medalist Mike Wolfs and Paul & Sheryl Shard of Distant Shores.
Black Diamond regularly participates in the Port Credit Yacht Club’s Monday night yacht races. This year Black Diamond was entered in the Monday night racer/cruiser series, division A & B. We were fortunate enough to take home first place in both A & B series. We also received 3rd place for the early spring ICE Breaker Regatta. I would like to thank our regular crew Cezary Makowski, Andrew McAllister, Kate Thomas and Stephen Bye.
Below are a few more photos of Black Diamond racing on Monday night.
