Winter Greetings Sylvan Sailors… from the Commodore!
Winter on the prairies…Holiday get togethers, Southern resorts, or just hunkered down, Spring will come and so another great season of sailing is in store for the club, with your participation and
the work of our club executive.

Cheryl Murdoch has our meetings well organized, records, minutes etc. up to date.
Sheldon Nadeau is learning the critical role of harbourmaster, numbers and deadlines expected to be out shortly.

Susan Cossi has already helped the club profile, supporting Doug Stuart’s contribution to the Festival of Trees (thanks Doug!) and connecting with the town of Sylvan, planning a charity sail… more
fun than a garage sale for sure!
