Windsurfing Derigging Party
Come out to the derigging party Oct. 26 and work off those hours or just come for a fun windsurfing themed day! We'll be meeting at 10:00 by the l1/L2 sails. We'll derig and do some general clean up of the windsurfing gear.
Then at 1:00 we'll have a bbq, bring your own meat and something to share! It will be a great chance for all the windsurfing members to mingle, talk windsurfing and plan fun events for next year!
At 2:00 there is the windsurfing swap so you can stick around to meet the windsurfing community outside Jericho and check out the swap for any good deals!
Please RSVP at
if you can come to the derigging. If it's stormy or really windy we'll postpone. So it's important you RSVP so I know you're planning on coming :)
Also we have some positions open on the exec. Let me know of you're interested in getting involved in windsurfing or the club in general ---especially if you're a student! We need more students in the exec team!

Winter is coming!
And that means the days are getting shorter and the evenings are getting darker. We should remember that Transport Canada regulations require all vessels (and that includes dinghies, kayaks, and SUP boards) to carry appropriate navigation lights if operated after sunset (which is around 8pm this week, and getting earlier). The good news is that, for the size of craft our club has, 'appropriate navigation lights' means a waterproof flashlight, carried so you can get at it and turn it on in time to warn other craft of your presence. While sailing after dark is problematic also because the wind tends to shut off well before sundown, for anyone wanting to enjoy sunset paddles, you'll need to make sure you have a flashlight; MEC has some nice ones for around $15.
