STORM SEASON: Batten down your hatches!

Every “off season” vicious wind storms rip through the Jericho Sailing Centre compound looking for loose tarps, boat covers and poorly stowed gear. When they find a loose tarp they can turn a docile hibernating boat into a flying projectile which can cause damage to neighbouring craft. Members are responsible for ensuring they have “battened down the hatches” on their equipment stored at the Jericho Sailing Centre. If your boat causes damage to neighbouring craft you can be held liable. We encourage you to check your craft regularly year round (particularly before & after gnarly windstorms), remove any parts or equipment that can be easily removed (most thefts occur between Oct.-April) and make sure water doesn’t collect inside your hull (if it freezes and expands it can cause major damage).

Park Board Unanimously Approves Pier Concept

The Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation unanimously approved the concept design of the Jericho Pier Renewal Project at their November 6 meeting. The new pier design includes a deck which is 2.5M higher than the current one (roughly equal to the elevated section at the top of the gangway) to contend with anticipated sea rise over the 75 year expected lifespan of the structure.

The new pier and upland features are expected to cost $16 million. The Park Board is budgeting $8 million toward it and will be asking the Federal and Provincial governments to contribute. The Disabled Sailing Association will be doing a major fundraising campaign which we will be encouraging users of the Jericho Sailing Centre to contribute to. Please consider this when planning your 2017 year end donations. More info on this in the December “in the wind“.

Help The City of Vancouver Document Sea Level Rise

The City of Vancouver is asking for your help to document king tides and rising sea levels this December & January to test their flood prediction models.

Follow these three easy steps to help:

  1. Visit their sea level rise StoryMap to find out the daily times of high tide and recommended locations to take photos.
  2. From December 5-9 and January 2-7, head to the water and snap photos of the shoreline with your phone or digital camera.
  3. Upload your photos on the StoryMap to provide the City with critical information to improve their understanding of sea level rise. If you have access to a data-enabled phone, you can upload photos immediately through your browser.

Visit¬†vancouver.ca/sealevelrise¬†to learn more about king tides and the City’s response to sea level rise and flood risk.
