BYC Events Schedule! Please note - Wednesday night races start (the horn goes) at 630pm as noted on the schedule. All other regatta events the time noted is the time of the skippers meeting.
The Barrie Yacht Club has a long established racing program, recognized by many as the best yacht racing club on the lake. We have a full schedule of windward-leeward style racing every Wednesday evening and medium to long distance races on weekends, typically combined with the inter-club Lake Simcoe Interclub Series (LSIS). The racing program runs from mid-May to mid-October. Boats usually leave the docks on Wednesday nights between 5:45 and 6:00 PM. Some weekend races start as early as 10 AM.
Please take a moment to read this brief article regarding the hazards of swimming near a boat that could have stray electrical current.
Please refrain from swimming in the BYC harbour and ensure kids swim at the beach.
