INFORMATION
The Britannia Aquatic Club was first organised (as the Britannia Boating and Glee Club) in 1887, became the Britannia Nautical Club in 1890, Britannia Boat-House Club in 1895 and, in 1906, the Britannia Boating Club. The club was a founding member of the CCA in 1900 after noted member Edward R. McNeill tried unsuccessfully in 1899 to form a distinct Canadian canoeing body separate from the American Association. Britannia hosted the championships at Lac Deschênes in 1902, 1908 and 1911, and suffered a major fire in 1918. Britannia withdrew its CCA membership in 1940, but still operates today as the Britannia Yacht Club with a new building and a lot of pride in their past achievements. Members were often referred to as "the Brits."
