Fanshawe Yacht Club, London, Ontario, CANADA
About FYC: Fanshawe Yacht Club was founded in 1953. It is a not-for-profit sailing club on Fanshawe Lake, a man-made reservoir on the historic Thames River in London, Ontario, CANADA
FYC is chiefly run by Volunteers and our Goals are:
- to provide facilities in which Members and the community may receive instruction in sailing skills
- to encourage sailing on Fanshawe Lake and elsewhere
- to promote a high standard of skill and seamanship in the handling of sail-craft
- to secure honourable conduct in all activity and competition
- to foster a friendly and cooperative spirit among its Membership and those who
frequent Fanshawe Yacht Club
- to cultivate fraternal relationships with other yachting organizations
- to perpetuate the tradition and fine spirit of the sport of yachting
- to arrange, develop and maintain proper facilities for the recreation of its Members and those who frequent Fanshawe Yacht Club
Fun Stuff: Each sailing season, we host several regattas, organize fun social events and run a Sailing School for kids and adults. FYC also provides a wonderful atmosphere for families and all those who want to get out and have fun on the water.
Boats in the club range in size from small dinghies to 26 foot trailerable cruising sailboats. The club offers recreational sailing, as well as weekly informal race nights for club members (rookie racers are always welcome!), club regattas and regattas open to non-club members. Our most active racing fleets include Laser, Laser Radial, Wayfarer, CS-22, open cruising classes, etc.
The FYC Sailing School has programs for both youth and adults to learn sailing. Summer camps are available during the day, as well as evening courses for adults.
