Commodore's Comments

Hello Sailors/Racers!!    With summer firmly upon us we have been enjoying some great sailing days lately with strong winds and warm weather.   Participation in racing is picking up as it always does through the summer, with 14-16 boats from our racing fleet typically out participating in our Wednesday event.   Despite the LOUSY weather for the open house, we welcome the 4-5 new club members who have come out to try sailing for the first time...or get back into the sport after a lengthy hiatus!! 
 
Preparations are now underway to organize the season ending End of Summer Hummer ("EOHS") regatta to be held September 18-20th.  In addition to my Commodore duties, I will be chairing the EOHS organizing committee and we would welcome any volunteers who can help us out in putting the event together.  If you want to help out, please send an email to info@sylvansailing.ca to express your interest!  Thanks to Brian and Sue Farguson for their endless willingness to help with club activities and to Val Knebel for agreeing to help out with the Hummer!  Also on the volunteer front, a big thanks to Lisa Rangen, Bob George and Chad Nestransky for the excellent job they are doing with the Race Committee this season.  We have truly enjoyed some excellent courses that have maximized the racing this season.....great work team!!
 
Finally, I invite club members to help out Parasports "Disabled Sailing - Try it Day!!" planned for Sunday August 2, 2015 (Location to be determined).  Parasports will be bringing out four boats (2 - Martin 16's and 2 - Access Dinghy's) to the lake to offer a one hour sailing experience to individuals living with impairments.   If anyone is interested in helping out with this great event, please contact Hayden Slaymaker at (403)550-7338 or via email at redeer@parasports.net for more information.  This is a great opportunity for the club to give back to the community and help out with this wonderful cause to help get people sailing!!

Sailing News

I would ask of the boat owners to remind any crew members whose names do not appear on the list e-mailed out that they can pay their membership at the Wednesday night social after the race to Dave Graham.

 

I would like to thank all the paid up members and those who are going to pay on Wednesday.
