The Convoy Cup recognizes the historical contribution of the port of Halifax to the convoy lifeline to Europe during World War II, and perpetuates the memory of the courageous men and women of the merchant marine, navy and air force.
We continue to honour the sacrifices made by veterans of past and present conflicts, who contributed so much to the peace and security we enjoy today.

Every two years, the Convoy Cup Foundation organizes a weekend of yacht races and commemorative ceremonies for the veterans of naval and military conflicts.
Based at the Dartmouth Yacht Club, this weekend consists of a reception, two yacht races, and a commemorative sail-past attended by veterans and dignitaries. All proceeds go towards the foundation, whose ongoing mission is to provide support and recognition to veterans, and to educate about Canada’s rich contribution to naval history.Help our fundraising efforts.
