Safety Notice Don’t Get Caught Out in the Dark

These sailors were lucky to have been spotted by Jericho Rescue after sunset with no wind & NO paddle

 

If wind fuels your craft, you must be aware of the time of sunset as the wind frequently shuts off abruptly within the last hour of daylight. Sailing dinghies are required by law to carry a paddle for this very purpose. Never sail further away from Jericho in the evening than you would like to paddle. Today’s sunset is at 1914H and we lose a couple of minutes of daylight each day.

Safety Notice – Keep a Sharp Lookout When Leaving/Approaching Shore

The Day of the Longboat takes place on Saturday 0800-1730H and on Sunday 0900-1630H. The 8-boat heats will start from the shore between ramps #2 & #3 every 5 minutes or so and return to the shore between ramps #1 & #2 after completing their 2 km round trip to and from Jerry’s Cove east of the Jericho Sailing Centre. It is important to pay close attention when launching and approaching the shore to ensure you don’t become part of the race. Members of the Jericho Rescue Team will be stationed on the water and on the shore to assist anyone transiting the race area. Please heed their advice and be extra vigilant when transiting the area.

This Weekend @ Jericho: 30th UBC REC Day of the Longboat

Some say the ancient human settlement at Jericho was called E’eyoughmough. Long before the Jericho Sailing Centre, the Jericho Beach Air Station or Jerry’s Cove logging operation; long before the fresh water stream flowing into the tidal estuary below the south shore’s old growth Douglas Fir forest was noted in Captain George Vancouver’s log; before 3,000 years of tides washed in and out of our ocean inlet under the mountains; hands first connected to paddles here and began a long human history of shoveling the Salish Sea into their wake.  

This weekend Jericho celebrates our continuing, longstanding relationship with the paddle, as 3,500 participants pick one up for the 2017 UBC REC Day of the Longboat-30th Anniversary Edition. The Jericho Sailing Centre, Vancouver’s Ocean Community Centre, has hosted the annual UBC “Day of the Longboat” for three decades and we welcome everyone to come view this spectator friendly, ocean playground, community event on September 30 & October 1(0830-1600H). You will witness an invigoratingly unique, very large, slightly loud, Salish Sea, celebration of the paddle; our soul connection to Vancouver’s most ancient community. Your ocean spirit, will be lifted.
