PDYC Racing

Welcome to the Port Dover Yacht Club

Racing Division!

PDYC Racing fleet,

It is with great regret that we must announce that the 2020 racing season in Port Dover is cancelled in its entirety.

We recently received 2 very restrictive items of information (Port Dover Harbour Marina regulations & Sailing Ontario directives) that directly impact our ability to proceed with any kind of season. Furthermore, only 4 skippers (out of 22 respondents) indicated they could participate solely with members of their own household.

Therefore, we are left with little choice but to abandon the season. With luck, we will be back to normal operations in 2021. Until then, stay safe, and we'll see you on the water.

Your PDYC Racing Division Executive team.


Located in Port Dover, Ontario, the Port Dover Yacht Club Race Division has a long-standing history of sailboat racing on beautiful Lake Erie. In 2020, we are celebrating 50 years of Sailboat Racing!

Jib & Main fleet and Spinnaker fleet racing takes place every Wednesday evening from June to September, with a Spinnaker only fleet on Monday nights in June and September. Racing starts at approximately 7pm from June through to August and approximately 6:30pm in September. Come aboard and join in on an exciting Port Dover tradition!

  • 50th Anniversary Race Season - Spring 2020! - POSTPONED until further notice.

Have you always wanted to crew on those sailboats you see playing on Lake Erie on Wednesday nights? We have options!
