Belwood Lake Sailing Club is a small, member-managed sailing club located on Belwood Lake, just four kilometres from Fergus. The BLSC is dedicated to providing a friendly, fun atmosphere to set sail, enjoy a picnic, and take a dip. Come see for yourself!
Our 10 acre grounds provide boat and car parking, a clubhouse with kitchen and washroom facilities, a barbeque, large deck, designated camping area, picnic tables, and kids’ playground.
We also have a good boat ramp for season-round access, and two docks that support simple access and exit into and from the lake. The three club dollies help most members hand-launch their boats easily. And if you need a hand, people are always willing to help!
Our twice-weekly friendly race are a great way to get out and enjoy the summer weather and compete with fellow sailors. Come out on Wednesday nights (6:30pm starts) and Sunday afternoons (2pm starts) to participate in our organized two-race or three-race events, you’ll have fun and improve your sailing skills, too!

BLSC, Guelph Lake SC, Conestoga SC work together to host regattas every summer. Members from each club are invited to compete in the regattas, and all you need to bring is your boat and your gear. The Wellington Cup race is hosted alternately by the Guelph Lake SC, Conestoga SC and the BLSC. This is a club race to determine whose fleet is faster.
The upkeep and maintenance of the club is important to every BLSC member, and every member is responsible for the care of their area. Spring cleanup helps to kick off the new summer season on a high note, and fall cleanup ensures everything is ship-shape for winter. Weekly maintenance responsibilities rotate between members, and are a way for everyone to participate in the upkeep of the club. Find out more about BLSC Membership .
Our members come from all walks of life from all over Southern Ontario – our membership is as diverse as our fleet! From Lasers, CLs and Y-Flyers to Wayfarers and Hobie Cats, these are just some of the boats you’ll see on the water. Members also keep kayaks and canoes at the club – handy for poking around the shallows and backwaters of Belwood lake!
We’re a friendly bunch! Our Social Committee organizes several club barbeques every summer to mark special events like club opening or closing, hosting regattas, or just to get everyone together to celebrate good sailing. And of course, all members are welcome to use the facilities for friend and family events.
