C&C Yachts Reunion and Conference: “Design, Production, Performance and Legacy”

Where: Royal Hamilton Yacht Club, Hamilton, Ontario

When: Saturday, April 14th & Sunday, April 15th

The Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston is organizing a C&C Yachts Reunion and Conference at the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club. The two day event is not only a chance to celebrate the history of a successful Canadian yachting story, but is also a fundraiser to help support the preservation of C&C Yachts Collection at the Marine Museum and an opportunity to gather critical information from principle participants to further enrich the Collection. All past C&C employees are encouraged to bring old photographs and memorabilia of the company for scanning, photographing or donation to add to the C&C Collection at the Museum. The names of all past C&C employees will be also added to the Museum archives.

The Reunion on Saturday evening will be open to only past C&C employees and those dealers, sail makers, and industry people most closely associated with the company from its original founding in 1969 to its loss of public status in 1981.

The C&C Conference on Sunday will feature panel discussions by members of the C&C Design Group, C&C Production, Sales and Marketing, and a group of yachting industry professionals discussing the Legacy of C&C Yachts. Attendance to the Conference is open to everyone interested in the history and legacy of C&C Yachts. The Conference will be moderated by Maurice Smith, Curator Emeritus of the Marine Museum. Questions will be welcome from the audience. Attendance is limited to 225 people.

The C&C Collection consists of George Cuthbertson’s personal and corporate papers and the design drawings of Cuthbertson and Cassian and C&C Yachts to 1973, as well as all the drawings and a large number of files of C&C Yachts from 1973 to well into the ‘90s, when the assets of the company were acquired by Fairport Marine, builders of Tartan Yachts. Tim Jackett, formally of Fairport and Novis Marine, donated the later drawings.
The fee for the Conference includes a continental breakfast, coffee breaks and lunch, plus a one year membership to the Marine Museum. Attendees will be encouraged to make additional donations to go towards preserving and making available this vast collection of over 25 years of Canadian yachting history and legacy. This is a "one time only" event!

For more information, please contact Doug Cowie, manager of the Marine Museum (manager@marmuseum.ca), or C&C Alumnus Rob Mazza (robertlmazza@gmail.com), who is helping to organize the event. To register to attend either the Reunion, Conference, or both, go to the Marine Museum website (www.marmuseum.ca) or RHYC website (www.rhyc.on.ca). For information about the C&C Collection, and perhaps donating to it, please contact Maurice Smith (barque2@cogeco.ca).

The organizers of the conference have asked for advance questions from those who have signed up for the event, organized by the four main themes of "Design, Production, Performance and Legacy”. These will be answered, or at least discussed, by people representing all the main functions, plus people like sailmakers and journalists who were closely involved with the company.

Do you have a question about C&C Yachts that you would like to ask, but are unable to go? Post it here, and I will pass it on.

Please be advised that as the owner of a 27 turning 40 this season (the boat, not me, I'll be 53) and as a former working marine journo hack type, I have been lassoed into serving on the legacy panel. Any 27ers that attend, please do say hello.

Re: C&C 27 Mark V:
how many of this model were built without an inboard engine installed? I sail an "empty" with outboard power and wonder how many of us are on the water?
Thankscopasetic

I don't have an answer to your question, but the original brochure says that an inboard engine was optional. However, the drawing shows a boat with a prop and shaft for that option. The same is true of wheel steering. In the brochure, which mixes pictures of SMOKE and CANNERY ROW, one has tiller steering and the other wheel steering.  
Someone at the Reunion and Conference might have the answer to your question.
