On the Water
Many destinations are available to cruisers from the RStLYC. In addition to day trips (see sailing and destinations) and medium-length trips towards the Ottawa River and various waterways on the Rideau or the Trent-Severn Canals, cruising boat owners can go to Trois-Rivières, Québec City, the Saguenay and Lower St. Lawrence, or else, go up-stream to the Thousand Islands, Kingston and Lake Ontario.
For those looking for a more challenging adventure ( see cruising and destinations), it is possible to go to the Chambly Canal and reach Lake Champlain, the Hudson and New York! Some of our members have gone as far as Florida and the Caribbean on their sail or motorboat.
And if you have lots of time, you can take the Rideau and the Trent Severn as far as Georgian Bay on Lake Huron. You can even do the Small Loop (Lake Champlain, Canal Erie and Oswego and Lake Ontario) or the Big Loop, counter-clockwise on St. Lawrence Seaway, Lake Michigan, Illinois Waterways, Mississippi, go around Florida and back along the Atlantic coastal waters on a sailboat or motorboat.
The experience of a lifetime!
