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.

selected a summer weekend which will work best.
