Long Distance Cruise Canceled

It seems to be a quite an oxymoron, but the high water levels are causing numerous problems around the lake and the planning of the Long Distance Cruise is no exception. Do ski hills have trouble with too much snow?

We will not be having a Long Distance Cruise this year because we have no remaining choices of destination that can accommodate a fleet of visitors within range due to the impact of the high water levels. Dock facilities are in many cases at reduced capacity for various particular reasons. We have been unable to get a confirmed commitment to handle a fleet of boats. There is a reluctance to commit because of the operator’s uncertainty of their status with respect to the high water level impact on their operation and ability to accommodate the fleet.

I understand that from that from an individual boat cruising perspective, there is dockage available around the lake at many locations, but accommodating a fleet in these conditions is too uncertain for confirmations to be made.

This is regrettable but we will look forward to the return of the Trident Long Distance Cruise in 2018.

Masting days at Trident

Masting has begun at Trident.

Here are some photos of the process using the boom truck (required this year due to the high water levels).  Wind was blowing from the East which raised the water level and pushed more water onto the parking lot. Masting at Trident Yacht Club, Spring 2017

Still, several boats were masted on Tuesday afternoon and more will be lining up today (Friday).  Weather looks perfect for this activity.

Just in time for the boating season…

A new section was added to the Member’s Corner > Additional Links page.  This section called Cross Border Travel lists several websites with useful information to boaters who are planning to visit the US.

Be sure to check these out before your next trip to the south shore!

Water levels still rising…

water spilling into East parking lot Spring 2017

The water levels are still rising with part of the East parking lot under water.   The center dock ramp can be seen pointing to the sky as the floating dock rises with the water.

North dock is barely above water, as seen here on picture taken Sunday, May 7, 2017.

Some of the cradles waiting to be moved to the storage area are in the water.

Water pooling behind the seawall

South dock ramp at high water levels

South dock is doing well with the ramp parallel to the dock.  We can see some water creeping up behind the boardwalk.

West dock rising with the water

West dock is ok but the seawall and part of the parking is currently under water.  Chapin dock is almost submerged.

Washroom Renovation Update #10

Washroom renovations were completed in the fall of 2016.  The ceramic wall tiles have been replaced by the contractor and the new washrooms are now ready for the upcoming 2017 sailing season.

We will post new pictures of the completed work in the next week or so.

The new washrooms will be available as soon as the water has been turned back on in the clubhouse.

Thanks again to Pierre de Gagné and his team for all the great work.

Hoping to see you all down at the clubhouse!
