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.
- August 29 Clear and Stoney Lake Run
It has been a while since we cruised the waters of Clear and Stoney Lake as a group but it is always a scenic and enjoyable day. This year’s run is on Saturday August 29, 2015 For those arriving by land, please plan to launch at Young’s Point Marine at about 9:30 a.m. to be ready to start our voyage at 10 a.m. There will be a small fee to use the launch facility and park on site.
We will proceed north on Clear Lake, tour Stoney and return to Clear Lake stopping at the residence of Prior and Allana Smith for a picnic lunch. There will be dock space available at the Smith’s and their neighbor. Please bring your picnic lunch, beverages and lawn chairs.
We ask that you confirm attendance by and let us know if you will be arriving by water or land. We also need to know how many will be joining us for lunch to arrange dockage.
I hope you are having a great boating season and look forward to seeing you on Clear/Stoney.
- September 26 Chemong Lake Run and Pot Luck at Chemong Yacht Haven
- November 28 AGM and Christmas Dinner

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.
