Welcome to the LOCCA Website

We are pleased to present to you a website that continues to evolve to support the needs of Fleet Captains, Yacht Clubs, Commodores and the boaters / sailors of Lake Ontario.  One of the innovations that we introduced in 2016 was the electronic reciprocal page that captures the reciprocal privileges of LOCCA member Yacht Clubs.  This innovation eliminated the need for clubs to send and receive reciprocal letters by mail, compile these and ensure that they are available to club members for consultation.  The reciprocal page also allows Yacht Clubs to convert the page to a PDF for use by bosons when greeting visiting boaters. This spring, the reciprocal privileges page will be available to all Yacht Clubs (YCs) on Lake Ontario and Western St-Lawrence Seaway as long as they are members in good standing of LOCCA and Ontario Sailing or a US Regional Sailing Association.

2017 was a terrible year for boaters due to extremely high water levels; because of these water levels, many clubs were closed to visitors. In order to support Yacht Clubs, Boaters / Sailors and Fleet Captains, LOCCA created a dedicated web page that allowed Yacht Clubs to post whether they were open or closed to visiting boats.  This helped boaters and fleet captains in planning their navigation on the lake and also planning club cruises.

On Sunday, February 25. 2018, Ashbridge’s Bay Yacht Club (ABYC) hosted a meeting of the Fleet Captains that helped us prioritize the next chapter of the website enhancements.   One of the new developments is providing each Yacht Club with a page that describes club amenities, phone numbers, where to call to get a slip as a visitor, and more.  This information can be accessed from either the Map tab or the Reciprocal tab.

Enjoy the site and give us feedback to improve the look and feel of the site.
