Click here! Lac Deschenes Sailing Club (LDSC)

The LDSC clubhouse.
The Lac Deschenes Sailing Club is a well established club that has been around since 1967. It is a low cost volunteer organization which prides itself on maintaining a low key cottage-like atmosphere.

The Lac Deschenes Sailing Club caters primarily to dinghies and small catamarans, although it does have some swing moorings which are used for small trailerable keelboats. Most people at LDSC have their own boats, but for a small annual fee, members can make use of club-owned boats. Facilities include a clubhouse, beach, as well as swimming and picnic areas. Services include complete racing, training, and junior programs.

Looking out from LDSC.
It is worth noting that LDSC absorbed the neighbouring Shirley's Bay Sailing Club in 1994. This club was forced to close when the National Capital Commission imposed a major rent increase. (The empty cottage which served as clubhouse for the Shirley's Bay Sailing Club was later destroyed by fire.)
