Trent Severn Antique & Classic Boat Association
2015 Schedule of Events
Hi everyone, and welcome to the 2015 boating year. For returning members, you will find that we are offering an interesting calendar of events. We have some new events coming up this year so be sure to watch this page for full information prior to each event taking place.
For new members joining us this year, we would like to welcome you to TSACBA and encourage you to take part in the activities listed below. For those of you who don't have a boat, we always encourage you to contact the organizers to “hitch a ride” with other club members when boating is involved.
If there is an event you want to attend we encourage you to register by contacting as soon as possible to ensure yourself a spot. More information and details will be coming soon, as each of the events get closer and don’t forget participation in our events not only strengthens the club, but it also opens doors to many recreational and social activities. There is no better way to see old friends and meet new people than to take part in the TSACBA events. You may even find another boat to buy!
Following is the list of planned events for 2015. As each event approaches more information will be provided.
- July 1 Canada Day Parade Peterborough and
- July 11 Gravenhurst Antique & Classic Boat Show
It is hard to believe we are quickly approaching event #8 of 16 on our 2015 fridge magnet.
On Canada Day, July 1st, the TSACBA is entering the Peterborough Canada Day Parade on George Street and will be having a BBQ celebration to follow. The parade starts at noon with staging at 11:00 AM near Water and McDonnell Streets. If you are interested in joining us with your boat or would like to walk the route distributing candies or simply join us afterwards for the pot luck, please email .
I also point out that our friends at ACBS Toronto are having their 35th annual Summer Vintage Boat Show on July 11th at the Muskoka Wharf, Gravenhurst. It is the year of the Dispro - celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Dispro Device. The show will have everything from Dippies to Ditchburns. A show well worth experiencing. Please check the ACBS Toronto website for details.
I hope to see you soon. Stay safe on the water.

Pan Am Games 2015 Torch Relay
Past President Jim Watt had the honour of being the TSACBA representative carrying the Toronto 2015 Pan AM Games Torch - by boat - Thursday June 4, 2015 as part of the Pan Am Torch Relay Community Celebration in Peterborough. This portion of the torch relay was unique as a portion of the relay travelled along the Trent Severn Waterway via the Peterborough Rowing Club, TSACBA using locally build antique watercraft, the Survivors Abreast Dragon Boat Team, and the Canadian Canoe Museum voyageur canoes. In the photos taken by Daphne Robertson, Jim Watt passes the torch to Survivors Abreast Dragon Boat Team captain Karen Stillman.
