Jericho Sailing Centre – SOS – Season Opening Sailpast Saturday May 13 1300H
A centuries old sailing tradition, the “Sail Past” originated when ships amassed prior to naval conflict and sailed past the Admiral’s vessel to salute him/her, pledging their allegiance and hoping to pass inspection. Despite a happy lack of recent naval conflict, the world wide boating tradition continues to this day, supported by the superstitious, mariner notion that good luck and good weather accompanies all vessels and crew who participate.
At Jericho, we consider the word “Sailing” to be the verb, meaning “travel over water” which is inclusive of all small naturally powered craft native to this shore. All Jericho Members and guests are invited to sail, paddle, windsurf, row, SUP, whatever you like to do here, past our flagship, the Albatross, to salute our Commodore and crew on Saturday, May 13 between 1300H and 1400H.
The SOS is also an important part of the Jericho Boat Show OPEN HOUSE as it gives our visiting landlubber friends an opportunity to see the Jericho Sailing Centre in action – rain or shine please come out and share your Jericho spirit.
