We know of no other facility that has safely introduced more people to the sport of SUP than the Jericho Sailing Centre. Our professional school and affiliated clubs have shared the joy of stand-up paddling with thousands of people over the last 8 years since Windsure Windsurfing School became the first organization in Vancouver to offer SUP programs to the public.
Wearing PFD’s and safety leashes are mandatory for use of all school and club SUPs at the Jericho Sailing Centre, and we strongly recommend them for all users.
The last Thursday evening Jericho Wavechaser Paddle Series is this Thursday, August 27 @ 7pm. The Series Finale will be on Saturday, Sept. 5 at 1100H. For more info paddle over to the Wavechaser webpage.

Notice of Race
The Jericho Wavechaser takes place out of the Jericho Sailing Centre off the Spanish Bank beaches of Vancouver’s south shore.
The race series is run by volunteers from Jericho’s paddling community and is only $5 for all paddling classes – no charge for members of the Jericho Sailing Centre Association (annual membership $99). There is a fantastic after race BBQ available to all participants for $5.
More and more paddlers are discovering how fun the waters off Jericho can be and what an amazing venue the centre is. There is also something about the beach atmosphere that makes the location feel like the Hawaii of Canada. We will have a safety boat at each race and we keep the race course a surprise! Actually, we try to optimize each race to take advantage of the best bumps we can get.
Jericho Wavechaser Paddle Series:
Joe Charron is a working class songwriter. From the factories to the farm, from the back alleys of the city to somewhere down a dirt road, Joe writes songs about everyday people. Songs for and from the heart, songs of joy and sorrow, songs of hard work and hard play, songs that last. Call his music country or folk or roots or whatever you choose, but know that it is compelling. You’ll not want to miss this night at Jericho.
Another Session 8:30
Feature Act 9:00
Metro Vancouver has activated Stage 3 of the Water Shortage Response Plan. Boat washing from the city source is PROHIBITED and the JSCA is asking all users of the Jericho Sailing Centre to comply.
Going forward the JSCA is looking at ways to get our boat washing stations “off the grid” by collecting, storing and utilizing rainwater. Our Planning and Operations Committee will be considering ways and means of doing this and we invite all members to join in on the conversation. Next Planning meeting is Sept 29 at 1900H.
