I am pleased to be the Commodore for the 2014-15 season marking the 30th anniversary of the Sylvan Lake Sailing Club. I am excited to help lead the club towards a new phase of prosperity
and growth, while remaining committed to our mandate of provide a rewarding sailing and racing experience for all Central Alberta wind-powered enthusiasts!
We have a great mix of experienced and new members serving on the executive group this year and we are all hard at work working on planning for the upcoming season. The Executive group's
focus for the coming winter will be directed towards long-term, strategic initiatives including securing marina space, enhancing membership programs, scheduling, race management and social
activities. Most importantly the club will be working towards developing a higher profile in the community of sailors and non-sailors alike to keep the club strong and
The first "Winter Wednesday" meeting was held on November 5th with a total of 13 keen sailors participating in shaping the club policies going forward. I would
like to thank everyone who participated in discussing ways to grow the membership and improve participation from our existing club members. The Winter Wednesday
meetings are a great way for you to provide some new, fresh and innovative ideas on how to conduct the club activities for the future. No idea will be rejected and creativity is encouraged and
Sylvan Lake isn't frozen yet, so that means that sailing should still be on the minds of everyone looking forward to next season!
