Between the Niagara on the Lake Sailing Club (NOLSC) and the Youngstown Yacht Club (YYC), in Youngstown, NY, you should have plenty of sailing opportunities. Call NOLSC and ask for the Vice Commodore of Fleet’s phone
number or email
address and get in touch with him/her. They will be able to connect you with other sailors.
If you can get back and forth to the US fairly easily (Nexus?), then YYC has a sailing evening every Thursday night. Anyone can show up. Just be at the Club by 5:30-5:45 ish and they will put you on a boat. The boats leave the dock
at 6 and go out sailing for a couple of hours; you can then come back to the bar and meet lots of sailing people. This is all free of charge. Once you meet some people, you will be able to connect with racers for Tuesday (white sails
only) and Wednesday (spinnaker - more competitive) which are done in conjunction with NOLSC. You may want to call YYC first and confirm that Thursday night sailing is going on (weather is an issue and how many boats are available to take people out) - their number is 716-745-7230. Hit Ext. 10.
