BQYC Cruising Events 

Our volunteer organized cruises take place on various weekends throughout the sailing season (May until mid October) and vary from fun day-trips within the Bay of Quinte, to extended multi-day journeys throughout the Trent-Severn Waterway, Great Lakes, St Lawrence Seaway and beyond! Cruising events are organized by BQYC members and our cruising committee.
