For its 20th anniversary, Around PEC will be the support event for both North American & Canadian Raid Championships, presented by the Ontario Racing Catamaran Association and the Canadian F18 class.


Starting in Adulphustown, Ontario at the UEL campground which is east of Bath, Ontario. The course will be between Picton, Napanee, Kingston and Main Duck Island.


Around PEC is a 4 day long distance adventure race which is called a RAID. Each day the fleet will start in one location and sail to another. Each teams equipment will be moved by truck that we organise. It is designed so that a good club sailor can complete each leg.

Prince Edward County is an island in Lake Ontario. The area around Prince Edward county has a rich maritime history and some of the best freshwater sailing conditions in the world. This was in the area of the sailing events for the 1976 Olympics. French and English explorers plied the waters as early as the 1600s. The French established a mission in 1668. The United Empire Loyalists arrived in the area after the American Revolution and the land was surveyed and given out in parcels by King Edward III. Prince Edward was the son of King Edward.

Teams are welcome to come early to setup and no camping reservations are required. There are many things to do for non-sailing shore crew. Prince Edward County is a large tourist area with great beaches, restaurants and wineries. If you are coming early please let us know.
