Lac Deschenes Sailing Club

History: Sailing small boats and getting wet for over 45 years.

The Lac Deschenes Sailing Club was formed in 1966 to provide Ottawa dinghy and cat sailors a venue focused specifically on small boat sailing. A low cost volunteer organization, the club has a low-key cottage like atmosphere. Arguably the best site for sailing on this section of the river, the Lac Deschenes Sailing Club features beach launching for dry sailed dinghies and cats. Shirleys Bay provides excellent protection from the typically North West winds that come down the river, so setup and launching is convenient.

The Shirley's Bay Sailing Club merging with LDSC in 1994, enlarged the daysailing contingent with wet moored boats.

With a highly competent racing program with regular regatta schedule, and several national and international level sailors (but beginners are welcome too), plus junior and adult training programs, the club has much to offer all levels of sailors. Adult sailors are often coached one on one by volunteer club members to fast-track new members into sailing and racing. .
