Support Your Association
It’s only by the support of its members that the Lake Ontario Catalina Association can continue to thrive.
We need members to volunteer for the executive to contribute to the success of our sailing activities throughout the year. Please consider volunteering some of your time and joining a committee. It’s not a big commitment of time, but it adds to the enjoyment and camaraderie of being a member of LOCA.
We will announce shortly which positions are vacant, but nominations for all executive positions are welcome. We welcome old and new member nominations for these important positions.
2018 LOCA Events
LOCA is planning to hold the usual events in the summer of 2018. Hopefully, the unusual weather conditions of 2017 were a one-off event and we won’t be forced to repeat the unfortunate cancellation of our Rendezvous. Here are the proposed dates of our two main events:
The Sail/Drive-In event will be on Saturday, May 26
The Rendezvous will be the weekend of August 17-19
Stay tuned for more details as they emerge.

Dear LOCA Members,
Due to the high water levels and the unprecedented disruptions at many marinas and yacht clubs around the lake the LOCA executive has decided to cancel our August Rendezvous this year.
Many thanks to Cathedral Bluffs Yacht Club “CBYC” for their consideration in spite of the difficult circumstances at their facility. We wish them all the best as they continue to recover from the impact of the high water levels.
We are planning a fun and exciting post haulout land-based event for the fall! Details with be posted on the LOCA website when plans are finalized so please stay tuned!
Also, please note that our AGM will be held at the Toronto Boat Show on Saturday January 13, 2018. Details will be posted on our website when they become available.
All the best for the remainder of this historical season!
Your LOCA Executive
Well hello all.
This has been a slow year for us on Lake Ontario. Also for the LOCA group. We are still working on the end of season meetup. As of this time it is still in the air.
I really did not have a lot new to post. There is Catalina facebook group. There are association websites. But we really do not have anything for Lake Ontario owners specifically. It would be nice if we could keep it going.
Its a great place to post if you are heading out somewhere.. maybe someone would meet up. If you were interested. But we have to know.
Anyway. That’s all for now. I hope you are at least able to get out and enjoy your boat.
The events poster for the SIDI is up. Take a look.
