A great number of destinations are available to motorboat cruisers, whether they travel alone or in a flotilla. It is also feasible for sailboats to join a convoy, depending on the destination selected and the boat’s air draught.
Cruising in a flotilla can take you to different destinations along the the St. Lawrence or the Ottawa River. Here are some of the cruises that have taken place: Valleyfield,Melocheville, Pointe aux Cascades, Hudson, Montebello, Papineauville and Ottawa. For longer excursions, the Chambly Canal, Quebec City, the Lower St. Lawrence River or, going upriver, the Thousand Islands, the Rideau Canal and other waterways. The convoy is usually split into smaller groups respecting the vessels’ normal cruising speeds.
Our members are encouraged to fly the Club burgee when aboard their boats. This makes them easily identifiable to other members of the RSTLYC and is a great catalyst to introductions between members, particularly when away from the Club.
