What an exciting finale on ‘Top Chef Canada’. The judges surprised the top three finalists with Quickfire elimination challenge that resulted in the final two competing for the title. Chef Jonathan was edged out by fellow competitors Matt Stowe and Danny Smiles, claiming third place. A commendable hard fought battle between three very talented young Chefs’!more
The Royal Canadian Yacht Club would like to take this opportunity congratulate Chef Jonathan Goodyear on this outstanding achievement. Of his competition result, Chef Jonathan said, "I am going to go home and be surrounded by proud people and I will savour that.". Needless to say, he has a very proud RCYC family. Please join us in congratulating Chef Jonathan!

The Club has been informed that the Cherry Street Bridge will now not open before the end of July. General Manager Brian Pope has taken Hiawatha for a test drive to Queens' Quay to see if a city-side pickup might work, but multiple complications make that idea unfeasible.
Member Ned McCaulley and some Sharkies have organized a Thursday pm water taxi. 5 pm at foot of York Street. $10 per person and $30 minimum. No taxi if the wind exceeds 25 knots, though.
Got any out-of-the-box ideas? The Club will investigate! In the meantime, please continue to use the Unwin Avenue detour and remember that limited street parking is available on Cherry Street, north side of the bridge.
We will continue to advise Members as news emerges. In the meantime, please remember to take extra care when travelling to the Launch. Click here
