Welcome to the Sylvan Lake Sailing Club
The Sylvan Lake Sailing Club (SLSC) is a volunteer organization for sailors at Sylvan Lake – people who gather for races and sailing instruction, to socialize and around sailing. Operating out of the homebase of Marina Bay, the Club has access to 30 slips for members on an annual basis.
This website is designed as a resource for members, and it's filled with applications, instructions, race results and general information.
Current Club Members: Take a few minutes to peruse through this enhanced website to see all that it has to offer. The
calendar and sailing instructions for Wednesday racing have been updated for the 2015 season.
For sailors new to the Club: be sure to visit the Club Fundamentals and Memberships pages for details on the application process.
The SLSC has been operating in Sylvan Lake since 1985, and it's current focus is to help members enjoy the sport of sailing through racing.
Returning members and new members can complete their Membership Applications and Slip/Racing Applications online.
The SLSC offers a variety of racing opportunities for its members each season. From weekly races to special regattas, there are many opportunities for good sport and fun.

What's happening at SLSC?
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 email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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!!
