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.

Beware the Lions of the Sea


During last year’s annual Jericho Iron Classic outrigger race a sea lion presided over all of the canoes rounding the turn at the Q62 bell bouy just NW of Point Grey. When Jericho Rescue arrived in advance of the first racers, the sea lion was in the water circling the bell bouy and our crew was surprised at how quickly and easily he was able to pull his blubbery girth onto the navigational marker as seen in this photo. He was keenly & defensively interested in each of the 20 boats as they approached and rounded the bouy, leaving no doubt that this was his territory and he was prepared to defend it if necessary. It wasn’t necessary, he was just an additional, well appreciated element of nature in an already exciting race of naturally powered craft; but of course it never occurred to any of the participants to feed him or challenge him for his lofty sea throne position.
Sea Lions are frequently seen off Point Atkinson and Point Grey and are best observed from a safe distance. They are powerful, wild and potentially ferocious animals and must, like all of nature, be

Little Mountain Trio

Little Mountain Trio rocks. Besides their great playing on bass, guitar and mandolin, and beyond the deft three-part harmonies – not counting the infinite variety of the band’s repertoire – it’s the slick and twisted musical arrangements that most tickle your ears and make you smile. Kitty King, Dave Lidstone and Rob McGregor perform musical magic on a mix of original compositions, blues, jazz and country classics.
