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.

Tour of the SS Keewatin and Miss Midland Cruise, May 24, 2014
The SS Keewatin, built in 1907 and after a stay in Michigan, returned to Georgian Bay in 2012. The passenger liner once sailed between Port Arthur / Fort William (now Thunder Bay) on Lake Superior and Port McNicoll on Georgian Bay (Lake Huron) in Ontario, Canada.
