Head Instructor Report – Week of July 19

Get ready for another great week of sailing! The start of the summer has been a huge success. With 2 weeks already under our belts, the instructors are gearing up for six more awesome weeks on the water. This summer SLSC is clearly the place to be!

This past week Ian took 8 sailors from the junior race team to race at Port Credit Yacht Club competing at the Steerers Regatta.  The kids had a great time and did some awesome sailing. Congrats guys on some great racing, and for being great ambassadors for the club.

Wednesday’s Treasure Hunt/Harry Potter Day was absolutely magical, and the Tuesday movies were top-notch (although possibly a little scary for Chris); but the summer has just begun! We have a jam-packed week ahead of us to look forward to, on top of one of the biggest weekends of the summer.

Here’s what’s up!

Masters Regatta

This weekend SLSC is hosting  the Canadian Laser Masters Championships.  With top notch laser sailors coming from all over the country, this is one of those weekends you don’t want to miss. We are expecting around 60 sailors, with most arriving Thursday night.  The Regatta won’t have a big effect on the normal day program as Masters racing doesn’t start until the afternoon, although Friday will likely be a very busy day at Club as the regular hustle and bustle of a big regatta begins.

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. The theme this week will be determined by the Silvers. Starts at 7 – bring a dollar for admission and another couple bucks for pop/freezies.
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. 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 our third FUN DAY! This week it will be BALLOON DAY – an SLSC Classic. And there is a theme: CLOWNS! So dress up like your favourite funny man/woman and get ready to catch some balloons! It’s time to clown around.

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 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!  And don’t forget sunscreen – summer is surely coming this week!
