The Lake Kashagawigamog Sailing Club began in the early 1960s with a small group of cottagers looking for a way to meet other cottagers who share their love of sailing and camaraderie.
Early members sailed mostly Albacores and Wayfarers as well as Force 5s, CL16s, and even an Olympic keelboat class Star competed regularly until the early 80s.
Lasers have become the most common member boat today, however all class of boat are welcome such as Hobie Cats, Sunfish, Zuma, Byte, etc. Races are competitive and fun and we have racer levels ranging from beginner to advanced.
Juniors are welcome, and the veterans are always open to tips and advice. Races are bi-weekly, and courses are set just North of Puffer Island.
Since 1964 sailors on LK have met on Saturday afternoons following the races. Join us for an afternoon of friendly racing and fun.
Post race ‘Weepers’ held at the end of each race day to announce winners and welcome new members. Weepers begin at 4:30 p.m. Speak to the race day committee boat for locations.
