English Bay Safety Seminar – Next one June 5

The English Bay Safety Seminar was developed for users of the Jericho Sailing Centre to help keep them safe at play on the waters of English Bay. The seminar covers basic water safety fundamentals along with user specific information drawn from the logs of the Jericho Rescue Team who have intervened in thousands of potential “sea disasters” over the past 43 years.

Why make your own mistakes when you can learn from the mistakes of others? Don’t challenge Darwin’s theory, make sure your water safety knowledge is the fittest it can be. Your survival may well depend upon it. Find the missing links and fill in the gaps in your water safety knowledge by attending a FREE English Bay Safety Seminar June 5 & 19, July 17 or August 14. All times at 1900H RSVP JSCA office 604-224-4177.

The annual Jericho Sailing Centre OPEN HOUSE is on Saturday, May 13 from Noon-1600H.

Jericho Sailing Centre – SOS – Season Opening Sailpast Saturday May 13 1300H

A centuries old sailing tradition, the “Sail Past” originated when ships amassed prior to naval conflict and sailed past the Admiral’s vessel to salute him/her, pledging their allegiance and hoping to pass inspection. Despite a happy lack of recent naval conflict, the world wide boating tradition continues to this day, supported by the superstitious, mariner notion that good luck and good weather accompanies all vessels and crew who participate.

The Jericho Sailing Centre Season Opening Sailpast (SOS) is important to you, good member, to ensure that all of your ocean excursions this 2017 season are blessed with favourable weather.

At Jericho, we consider the word “Sailing” to be the verb, meaning “travel over water” which is inclusive of all small naturally powered craft native to this shore. All Jericho Members and guests are invited to sail, paddle, windsurf, row, SUP, whatever you like to do here, past our flagship, the Albatross, to salute our Commodore and crew on Saturday, May 13 between 1300H and 1400H.

The SOS is also an important part of the Jericho Boat Show OPEN HOUSE as it gives our visiting landlubber friends an opportunity to see the Jericho Sailing Centre in action – rain or shine please come out and share your Jericho spirit.
