C&C Yachts Reunion and Living History Conference a Resounding Success
May 7, 2012
he depth of history of Canadian boat building and sailing gathered at the Royal
amilton Yacht Club on the weekend of April 14 -15 was immense.
n Saturday evening of April 14th, 120 past employees and associates of the
anadian sail boat designer and builder, C&C Yachts, gathered at the RHYC to
hare memories, tell stories, and generally get reacquainted almost 20 years
fter the company closed its doors in Canada for the final time. Held under the
uspicious of the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston, which holds the
&C Collection of drawings and memorabilia, this was the first of two days of
vents, followed on Sunday the 15th by the "C&C Yachts Living History
onference" held in the large room upstairs in the Waterfront Conference Centre.
his event was also attended by about 120 people who listened to four discussion
anels field questions from the audience and the Moderator, Maurice Smith of the
arine Museum, throughout the day on Design, Production, Sales and Marketing,
nd finally the Legacy of C&C Yachts.

anel members included George Cuthbertson, Rob Ball, Steve Killing, Rob Mazza,
uth Smith, George Hazen, Chuck Bentley, Barry Carroll, Paul Anstey, Henri
driaanse, Herman Verstegen, Gert Tiel, Murray White, Don Finkle, Peter
lacklock, Len Ramsey, Michael Spicer, Rob Turner, Murray Burt, Don Green, Doug
unter and Dan Spurr. The Conference spanned the whole spectrum of wooden and
omposite boat design and building over the last sixty years, bur focused
rimarily on the heyday of C&C Yachts from its founding in 1969 to its first
nsolvency in 1986.
he audience heard that C&C Yachts was the largest sailboat manufacturer in
orth America, capable of producing dual purpose racer/cruiser sailboats from 24
o 66 feet in an unparalleled level of efficiency. However, changes in market
onditions and strong economic and sociologic headwinds doomed the company as it
id so many of its less successful competitors in the mid to late 1980s.
owever, the audience also heard that the legacy of C&C Yachts was not only in
he strikingly good looking boats of superior quality and performance that were
roduced in four plants over three decades, and in the fond memory of all those
ho shared an association with the company, but also in the many people who
tarted with C&C and went on to very successful careers of their own in the
oating industry, modeling their future activities on what they had learned at
embers of the Design, Production, Sales & marketing, and Legacy Panels

he Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston is preserving the legacy of C&C
achts. A good part of this legacy this will be displayed as part of an exhibit
t the Museum scheduled for 2014 on the History of Great Lakes Yachting, with
&C Yachts being very much a major part of that story.
ithout question, these two days were significant events in the history of
ailing in Canada. For more information about the C&C Collection at the Marine
useum of the Great Lakes, please go to the Museum web site
