Canada Day 2018 Charity RaceThe Sylvan Lake Sailing Club (SLSC) is a volunteer organization for sailors in and around Central Alberta. We sail on Sylvan Lake and operate out of our home base of Marina Bay; where the club has access to 30 slips for members on an annual basis. We gather for races, sailing instruction and to socialize - all while enjoying the comradery of racing and the wonderful sport of sailing.
This website is designed as a resource for anyone interested in what our club has to offer. It is filled with applications, instructions, race results and general information.
At long last we can initiate the 2018 season!
Racing will begin on Wednesday June 13th and carry on as originally scheduled from that date. If there is a determination that we should add any dates a revision will be issued.

Commodore's Comments - 2018
The past year was exciting and full of fun. We had a great Canada Day celebration and we were lucky to have some great prizes donated, which helped raise much needed funds for the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation.
We are trying to increase membership and get more people interested in this fun environmentally friendly sport that allowed the people of the past to travel around the world before gasoline and engines. What else can you do that moves you at 8 knots but feels like 90 and with very little noise except from the flapping sails and the helms man.
The club is alive and filled with experienced women and men who are more than willing to help teach this sport to anyone that is willing to learn. As a nonprofit organization I feel it is our duty to help everyone we can and share the joy that we've been lucky enough to have been shown.
The earth is 71% covered by water so there is room for several more to join us.
I am looking forward to a great season and to seeing your smiling faces on the dock and the water.
