Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club

SLSC offers Sail Canada’s CANSail curriculum programs for children aged 8 to 18. In our morning program, we offer fun and safe learn-to-sail programming, and in the afternoon, we offer Race Team training. In addition to learning and developing basic sailing and racing skills, sailing teaches confidence, perseverance, and teamwork.

SLSC 2019: Chapter 7

Week 7 Holy cow! The instructors can’t believe that it is already Week 7. After a week of bad weather and lots of mafia and darling, the sailors are ready to be back on the water. Even though the summer is winding down, SLSC still has tons of fun activities planned, so stay tuned. Cottage Club This past Thursday and Friday, the Backshed headed off to South Muskoka for Cottage Club in order to prove that we are indeed the most superior cottage club. Despite differences between the clubs like…

SLSC 2019: Chapter 6

Civic Regatta A HUGE thank you is needed to all of our volunteers who made the Civic Holiday Regatta such a success! Maija Rix, Tom Kidd, Jack Foxwell, Harry Doane and Cathy DesBrisay helped out as mark and safety boats; Sophie Day and Jon Kidd made our lunches, and Sara GIlchrsit and Elliott Ollerhead helped out on RC. A big thanks to Will Ollerhead and Koo Chun for distributing the lunches. Henrietta Langran-DesBrisay provided all of the delicious homemade granola bars in the lunches. Thank you to the CanSail 4s…

SLSC 2019: Chapter 5

Week 5  It seems as if just last week, our instructors arrived at club ready to unpack boats and cover our bodies in mosquito repellent. However, the month of July has come to an end and I am officially out of a job (I wasn’t fired, I quit…). It has been a fantastic four weeks and we’re fully expecting the next four weeks to be equally as amazing.  New Instructors and Goodbyes  Well, it’s time. I have been dreading this day ever since I started this job, but it is…

SLSC 2019: Chapter 4

Week 4 The first month is coming to a close and it seems as if everyone has gotten back into the summer groove. Our sailors are checking off skills left and right on their checklick, and our July instructors (that’s me!) are preparing for their final week of this vigorous job. The wind gods finally responded to our prayers and blessed us with some very heavy wind days this past week (maybe a bit too heavy). Tuesday Movie Night  A movie night? On a Tuesday? From 6:00-7:45 ish? You should…

SLSC 2019: Chapter 3

Chapter 3 Sailing club is now in full swing – sailors have shaken off the rust built up over 10 dismal, sailing-free months, the rules to morning games are explained less and less often, and instructors are finally starting to locate all the bits and bobs in the instructor lounge.  And so our third week of sailing club begins. With two great weeks behind us, we’re looking forward to an equally amazing week ahead.  Tuesday Movie Night This Tuesday, the CanSail 4s, 5s and 6s are hosting a movie night….

SLSC 2019: Chapter 2

Week 2  The first week of club is now over and what a week it was! We are ecstatic to report that we have had no broken bones, boats, or spirits. We had light wind conditions this week, which was perfect for de-rusting our sailors after 10 months. Next week, we are praying to the wind gods to give us some heavier wind days, but not too heavy.  Tuesday Movie Night  If you’re looking to get rid of your kids for about an hour and a half (6:00-7:45 ish), then…
