English Bay Safety Seminar Next Monday August 21

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¬†August 21¬†at 1900H RSVP JSCA office.

This Weekend @ Jericho: Rum Runner Regatta

The annual Rum Runner regatta is bootlegging back to Jericho this weekend, August 19 & 20.

There once was a time when rum runners avoided Jericho Beach like the plague. During prohibition in the United States, the flying boat crews of the Jericho Beach Air Station often assisted Canada Customs in their quest to inhibit the illicit flow of demon alcohol to our teetotaler dominated, thirsty southern neighbours.

This weekend the tide turns and the rum runners will be heading north with immunity as the Jericho Sailing Centre hosts the fifth annual F18 Rum Runner Regatta on the waters of English Bay off of Jericho Beach.

For complete event information smuggle over to the Notice of Race: Rum Runner NOR
