The Lake Yacht Racing Association (LYRA) is an association of yacht clubs on Lake Ontario and eastern Lake Erie. It was founded in 1884 to promote yacht racing among member clubs.
LYRA 2013 will be held July 28 to August 4 at National Yacht Club in Toronto. For news and information on the regatta please go to lyra2013.com.
The Notices of Race for LYRA Week have been posted on lyra2013.com. This year the Centennial Cup Race, the Founders' Cup race, the Freeman Cup Race, and the day racing series each have a separate notice of race. We hope you will find this format simpler and easier to read. Registration is now open here.
