DANGER- NO Swimming OR Wading in Front of the Jericho Sailing Centre

There is no swimming permitted between the Jericho Pier and the rock groyne to the east. This area has been designated as a boat launching area by the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation and is well signed.
2016-06-29-03The danger of watercraft colliding with swimmers, or a beginner windsurfer dropping their mast on one is obvious to most users of the Jericho Sailing Centre. However, the most serious incident we know of involved someone standing knee deep along the shore whose leg was broken by a Hobie Cat approaching the beach. The shoreline in front of the Jericho Sailing Centre is a dangerous place to wade or allow small children to play. If you see someone breaking the No Swimming rule, or allowing children to play along the shoreline, please bring the danger to their attention or inform the Jericho Office or a member of the Jericho Rescue Team.

SAFETY NOTICE: Sail Racing on English Bay

Operators of vessels on English Bay should be aware that sail racing takes place regularly throughout the summer south of the anchored ships on English Bay. Notwithstanding collision regulations which must be adhered to at all times, we draw your attention to:

Rule 5  Look-out

Every vessel shall at all times maintain a proper look-out by sight and hearing as well asby all available means appropriate in the prevailing circumstances and conditions so as to make a full appraisal of the situation and of the risk of collision.

An organized race, with fleets of sailboats, racing around a course marked by inflatable buoys is a “circumstance” that vessel operators should be on the lookout for. Jericho Sailing Centre Association conducts racing programs in this area everyTuesday evening from 1815H – just before sunset. In addition, events are conducted by us everySunday at various times and quite frequently on Saturdays. Telltale signs, in addition to fleets of sailboats, include the Albatross anchored away from her regular mooring just off Jericho Beach and bright yellow and orange race marks which indicate course parameters. While vessels may transit race courses it is advisable not to loiter in the area and keep a sharp lookout to avoid vessels that are racing.

Our neighbours at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club run weekly racing on Wednesdayevenings between 1800-2030H and are also frequently out on weekends.  Other local sailing organizations also conduct racing events on English Bay.

Extreme Marine Hazard Warning – Fireworks

One of the most dangerous situations for operators of small water craft in Vancouver occurs at the conclusion of each Celebration of Light fireworks show. Hundreds of powerboats are hastily heading for home in all different directions and the sea surface is filled with crossing boat chop on waves. Lights from boats and downtown reflect everywhere and a kayak, canoe, rowboat or other small vessel is almost impossible to see, even if the power vessel Skipper hasn’t been drinking, and in some cases, he has.
.
The Jericho Sailing Centre Association advises our members and other small, naturally powered craft to not put themselves in this vulnerable position. If you choose to be out there, please remember that the Coast Guard and other safety boats will have their hands full and may not even be able to locate your craft within the boating frenzy if you need them. Also remember, that you the Skipper, as always, are solely responsible for your safety and that of your crew

Celebration of Light July 23, 27 & 30

The annual Celebration of Light fireworks display starts this Saturday2016-07-20-01

over English Bay. If fireworks turn you on, “Celebration” is a perfect accent to three Vancouver
mid-summer night eves right in the sweet spot of summer. The fireworks are best viewed from
English Bay Beach. Kits Beach offers a next best view with Jericho accommodating the
cheap seats – distant view but easier parking and disembarking when the show ends.
Seating at the Jericho Patio and Grill is tough to find after 2030H. The rooftop deck
will be open to members & their accompanying guests (60 maximum) with security
in place to enforce no alcohol or smoking. The three show dates are July 23, 27 and 30;
Start time 2200H.
