The Centennial Cup (originating in 1967), is a club team race, including all types of sailboats (keel and centreboard), between the CYC and the Port Hope Yacht Club. The course alternates yearly beginning at the “visitors” club and ending at the hosting club. A reception is held in the clubhouse either in Port Hope or Cobourg and welcomes the members of both clubs. The Trophies are awarded at this reception.
The Curtis Cup was begun by Ralph and Donna Curtis and was originally held on Father’s Day weekend. The club keel boats race across Lake Ontario to Oak Orchard where they socialize with the members of that club and then race back the next day. Recently it has evolved to include racers and cruisers.
Throughout the summer we race, including: a race to Peter’s Rock, a single-handed race, a double-handed race, and the Countess of Dufferin Cup. Some years we hold match racing using two matched centreboard boats. In the fall many CYC members race with Port Hope Yacht Club to Oak Orchard in Port Hope’s annual Cloud 9 Race.
