welcome to the Sudbury Yacht Club

Our Story

The Sudbury Yacht Club is located on beautiful lake Ramsey in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. Lake Ramsey is the only lake in Canada that is completely surrounded by a city. Not that you could tell from the scenery.

Founded in 1959 the SYC has  hosted international regattas and innumerable local competitions. We have seen our members distinguish themselves as racers and cruisers throughout the world as well as experts in the art of relaxation at our beautiful facility on Blueberry Island. Whether your ambitions are to tackle the national championships or occupy a lawn chair, our club has plenty to offer.

We are both a racing and a cruising club. Races are held Tuesday and Thursday evenings as well as Sunday afternoons. Lasers and Y-flyers are the two main competitive fleets, but all boats are welcome. Lake Ramsey also offers excellent cruising opportunities with varying winds and weather and many pleasant anchorages. Racers and cruisers alike enjoy our many social activities, especially our famous pot-luck dinners, which occur regularly throughout the season. We are a family-oriented facility and welcome members of all ages and all levels of expertise


The SYC organizes races three times a week and hosts a number of regattas and the pursuit events.
If you really want to hone your sailing skills there is nothing like a little competition.
