Jacques Adam River Challenge (JARC): it’s a go for 2021! As usual, you can make as many attempts as you like up until October 31, 2021. See the details and the Sailing Instruction here.
Boats from Manitoba, Quebec, Michigan and all over Ontario are already registered for the Nepean One Design Regatta. We welcome J/22, J/24, J/80, Martin 16, 2.4mR, Shark, Tanzer 22, Viper 640, Albacore, Fireball, 420, 505. Youth racers will also be there in Laser and Optimist/Pram. Join us August 14 + 15 for our highlight sailing event of the year. more…
Dear Sailors, we have an unofficial adventure sail planned for August 7th from NSC, up river to LDSC. There we are invited to beach / moor and enjoy the lawn and grounds at LDSC with their members. This is not a race, although I am sure some spirited sailing may result. Fancy dress is not mandatory, but pirate theme is encouraged :-)
Bring a picnic and beverage of your choice. Great opportunity to meet members from another club off the water, while getting there by boat.
Full instructions here.
Do not follow other vehicles through the sliding gate into the boatyard. The detector loop is not functioning. This means that your vehicle and the gate could sustain significant damage if it starts to close when you are part way through. more…
Members assigned a wet mooring are reminded to ensure their boats are moored such that there is no overhang over the main dock span (ie. bows, anchors, pulpits). As well, there is only one type of authorized dock bumper that can be installed as other designs will cause our newly decked docks to rot prematurely. Please check with Gene Bruce or James Pole for the specifications of the bumpers.
All wet-moored boat owners are requested to check bilges under the engine and in the keel sump for contaminant leakage. If there is any sign of contamination, owners must turn their bilge pump OFF until the source of the leak is repaired and the bilge cleaned of contaminants.
With Ontario moving to Step 3 in COVID measures on 16 July, we will be able to enjoy our boats and the club for the remainder of the season. Members who have not yet launched their boats are asked to get them in the water as soon as possible so the yard space can be maximized. The 21 day grace period after commercial launch expired on 26 June.
