The Outer Harbour Centreboard Club
For as long as Contenders have been sailed in North America, they have been a presence at the Outer Harbour Centreboard Club in Toronto, and OHCC has closely supported the Contender sailors. In 1981, OHCC hosted the Contender Worlds, and we're thrilled to announce that once again OHCC has decided to support the fleet by donating to the 2008 Worlds!
Ideally situated in a sheltered bay with easy access to the lake, OHCC is a self-help club, meaning annual and storage fees are low. As well has being the home to over a dozen active Contender sailors, OHCC also has albacores, CLs, 505s, lasers, and 470s. Every Tuesday and Thursday night from May to September, the club has mixed fleet racing, and on Tuesday there is a dinner hosted by volunteers who change from week to week (meaning there is always interesting food being served).
If anyone in the Toronto area is looking to get into the dinghy racing scene and looking for a friendly and diverse bunch of boats and sailors, pop down to OHCC for a tour!
