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?
Thanks to the 30 or so keen sailors who attended the Spring information meeting on
April 30th. I have attached a copy of the slides covering the clubs financial status, racing schedule and the rules refresher course as a review and for those who were unable to attend.
We are working on an updated membership list including gathering of members email addresses in order to improve direct communication of club activities with members. The existing mailing list
includes countless folks who haven't been members for years or moved away! If you haven't already done so, please let Nancy Smith know what your email is and we will be sure you will receive email
notifications of any communication. We will also continue to use the Facebook medium for distribution of news and events as well as the webpage.
Remember to check here for an update on the opening day for the marina. The MarinaBay group is doing some repairs this week to the docks and hope to have the marina open on or about May 7th. First
race is scheduled for May 25th and with the fabulous early spring weather there is no excuse for not enduring intense spring training to make 2016 the most competitive race season
Hello SLSC Boat Slipholders:
Below is the notice provided today by Marina Bay Homeowners Association regarding timelines for opening the marina. MBHA expects to have the dock remediation work completed by May 7th, with the
marina open starting that Saturday (unless unforeseen problems arise). Work to be done includes: replacing 16 fingers, adding new floats, replacing Arm B, installing new hinges, etc. Although
day use of the launch facilities are now open (but closed May 1 to 7) , the slips themselves will remain closed until this dock work is completed.
Please forward to me your proof of insurance that covers the sailing season (thanks to those who have already done so). A number of you have insurance that renews this
Spring - please forward your renewal documents. A reminder that MBHA requires all boats in slips to have $2 million coverage before they are allowed access to the marina.
Once I’ve received slip assignments from MBHA and your proof of insurance has been confirmed, I will forward info on your slip number.
