The first sail past launched from Jericho Beach may have taken place almost three thousand years ago when original inhabitants of this area set their canoes into the Salish sea and left their village behind to discover, hunt, trade and/or pillage. The next sail past from Jericho Beach will be on Saturday, May 12, 2018. All JSCA members are invited to join in as we carry on this longstanding tradition. Sail, paddle, windsurf, row, SUP Рwhatever you like to do here, come out and do it on Saturday, May 12 at 1300H.

Jericho Sailing Centre Annual Spring Clean-up

The JSCA encourages all members to participate in the 2018 Jericho Sailing Centre Annual Spring Clean-up by keeping your boat and storage space ship shape and by participating with volunteer work parties in 2018 to help clean up aisle ways and other common space areas. We have recycling bins onsite for the early spring to facilitate compound clean-up; please pitch in. Members can jettison their onsite sorted junk into the recycling bins on the main aisle way anytime or join in on organized volunteer work parties on Sundays:  April 8 & 15 @ 1300H *please let us know if you plan to attend*. (it is exceptionally bad form to deposit junk from elsewhere in our bins, those caught doing so will be sent home with rabbits).
