Vancouver SUP Challenge – Backpaddle

The annual Vancouver SUP Challenge was well attended last Saturday and included 2018 World SUP Champion Lincoln Dews. Thanks to event organizer Gary Parsons and his able crew (including the Jericho Rescue Team) for putting on another excellent event. Gary sent us this photo taken after a specialty heat: the biggest prone paddleboard race in Western Canada this century; and this week’s cover photo of the Men’s Sprint Final photo finish where Lincoln Dews was edged out by fellow Aussie Sam McCullough.

 

Thanks to photographer Lech Dolecki for this and our cover photo. We’ll include the link to Lech’s full gallery of the day’s photos once it is posted.

THIS WEEKEND @ Jericho – Rum Runner Regatta

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 seventh annual F18 Rum Runner Regatta on the waters of English Bay off of Jericho Beach. 

There will be a distance race on Saturday starting at 1230H and the F18 fleet will roll into our regular Sunday Racing program at 1230H on Sunday. 

For F18 Rum Runner Regatta Notice of Race smuggle your mouse over to: speakeasy  

    Regular Sunday Racing this weekend!

Jericho Folk Club – Tuesday August 13

  JERICHO FOLK PRESENTS
 
Holly Arntzen, Kevin Wright
and The Wilds
 
Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019
 
 
The Wilds is led by singer/songwriters Holly Arntzen-vocals, dulcimer, piano, and Kevin Wright-vocals, percussion, sax. When Holly and Kevin sing and write songs together, think Joni Mitchell meets Bon Scott (of ACDC.) An unlikely combination, but one that bears rich sounds, energy and a unique musical perspective. 
The sound of the Wilds is “Folk Pop to Rock Your World”-the folk/blues of Holly’s slide dulcimer, mixed with Kevin’s hard-hitting cajon and congas, and lit up by rich vocal harmonies, solid backbone bass and virtuoso guitar playing. 
Each year the Wilds can be found tromping up and down one watershed or another, singing their songs of salmon, rivers, oceans and social justice. In spring 2015 it was the Up Your Watershed! tour in the Fraser Basin, from Prince George on down to the coast. In 2016 and 2017 they completed the Rock the Salish Sea Tours to seven coastal BC communities, working with local schools and producing major concerts, singing out for the inland ocean between Vancouver Island and the mainland.
 
Admission: $10 
Doors: 7 pm – Acoustic Jam 
Open Stage: 7:30 pm 
Appetizer Set from Feature: 8:15 pm 
Break: 8:30 – Acoustic Jam 
Feature: 9 pm.

SAFETY NOTICE: Bee Aware Wasps May Be Nesting In Your Boat!

Around this time every summer the JSCA receives reports of wasps nesting under boat covers or even within our members boats. In one case our member had no idea his boat was infested until after his sailing session when he took his hull plug out and was confronted with an angry cloud of seasick wasps. Quite a buzz. Bee alert and make it part of your regular pre-launch check. If you discover a nest in your boat or see a stream of wasps coming and going from your neighbouring craft please let our office crew know and we’ll send our “wasp whisperers” out to tame them so that no one gets hurt.
