CLUB PROFILE Britannia Yacht Club By Katherine Stone Photos Courtesy of Britannia Yacht Club Black Jack - youth training ship. n interest to be on the water, do things on the water, and enjoy it with friends that like to do the same is the driving force behind just about any boating club in the world. Add to that a driving desire to continue to improve upon what you have so that your club becomes a destination to meet friends outside the sailing season, and you have a truly wonderful experience that has helped to form this club that would change its name five times before finally settling on the Britannia Yacht Club. The early voyageurs travelled the Ottawa River on their way to the Northwest and Georgian Bay. Because of the treacherous Deschenes Rapids, the Britannia shore (across the river from present day Aylmer, Quebec) became a busy portage launching place. A settlement was formed around 1823 when Captain John LeBreton received a land grant and established a lumber operation. Another sawmill soon followed and summer residents started to enjoy boating activities, which led to the loose establishment of an organization known as A 18 Canadi an Yachti ng Upper deck. Britannia-on-the-Bay Yachting Association. As documented in "Britannia Yacht Club - A History of Water, Place and People 1887-2012", things became a bit more formal by 1887 when it became officially known as The Britannia Aquatic Club, meeting in an old saw mill. By 1891, the first organized sailing, canoe, and rowing regatta was held. APRIL 2015
