Head Instructor Report – Week of August 3rd

Another amazing Civic weekend has come and gone.  For the new instructors it was quite an experience.  Both Chris and Ian competed at the running events.  Chris made it valiantly to the finish line, while Ian collapsed right at go and had to retire early.  In the mystery race, the three young teams triumphed, by carrying more marbles with their feet….and mouth: Liz.

Here are this week’s happenings and updates!

Civic Holiday Regatta

On Saturday, 12 420s, 4 Bytes, 4 Lasers, 4 Mosquitoes, 2 Opti’s and 5 Handicapped boats gathered for the annual Civic Holiday Regatta – quite an impressive fleet. The weather was less than cooperative with no wind.  So we tried again on Sunday.  Unfortanely,  Sunday had the same result.  However, Ian and Chris competed to see who could tow the most boats in behind their coach boat, while Kate and Amy set a new record by holding 4 inflated orange marks in Big Tin.

Sunday night was wrapped up with a delicious dinner and Prize giving at the Compound.

Congratulations to all our winners and thanks to all those who participated and/or volunteered!

Other Regattas

Our Silver team heads off for their annual out of town regatta this week. They’re going to the Cottage Club regatta at Lake Muskoka on Wednesday. Make sure to wish them luck before they head off (not that they’ll need it!!).

Movie Night/Dance

Tuesday is movie night. Two movies will be shown in the Clubhouse: the first suitable for all ages and the second open to 13 year olds and up. The first movie begins at 6:30 and each movie costs a dollar. Please bring a reusable cup for juice.

And of course, Friday is DANCE TIME. Starts at 7 – bring a dollar for admission and another couple bucks for pop/freezies. We’re not sure yet what the theme will be – the Silvers will let you know early this week.

The Silvers organize both of these events – so they will provide all the details!!

(Remember, if you have any questions about this you can call the club @ 887-5110)

Wednesday Night Races

Wednesday Night Races continue this week. They have been absolutely gorgeous evening sails so far and have definitely become a highlight of the week. So take a break after club, eat some dinner and then head back at 6 p.m. for some early evening sailing. Experienced and non-experienced racers will be paired up.

Fun Day on Wednesday and Pizza Lunch

This Wednesday is FUN DAY! This week will be the TRIP TO VERLUM! So get ready to hit the beach in style.

And to top it off: Wednesday is PIZZA LUNCH!!! Make sure your parents pay our wonderful Pizza Lady, Leslie, and enjoy a delicious lunch after sailing on Wednesday.

Water bottles and bring things.

Just a reminder: bring a water bottle to Sailing Club because we have a water cooler that you can refill with if needed. Help us help you stay hydrated!

Also, on top of a lifejacket and proper footwear, please bring warm clothing and rain gear if possible – because unless it’s reeeaally bad weather, we’re going sailing! Oh and bring your sunscreen, because summer is in full swing!
