Safety Notice: Caution Slickery Ramps

Algae grows very quickly on objects in the inter tidal zone and the Jericho Sailing Centre ramps are no exception. Predominantly higher water levels and far fewer resources at this time of year (and through the winter) make it a real challenge to keep our ramps clear. We will endeavour to meet this challenge, however, please be aware of this and take extra precaution when using the ramps.

Jericho Beach Air Station Slide Show Presentation – October 16

Felixtowe flying boat launches from Jericho in 1920

Long before the Jericho Sailing Centre facilitated launching Lasers, windsurfers, kayaks and SUPs, our site was used to launch Blackburn Sharks, Supermarine Stranraers and various other flying boats and seaplanes. Our building was built in 1940 as the RCAF Jericho Beach Air Station Marine and Stores Building. The pre-RCAF Jericho Beach Air Station was established in the infancy of Canadian aviation in 1920, almost 10 years before the Vancouver Airport opened. Come find out more about the history of the Jericho Beach Air Station at a slide show presentation with JSCA GM Mike Cotter on Tuesday, October 16 at 1900H. The presentation is free but please RSVP so we can save you a chair.

Day of the Longboat: Use Extreme Caution When Leaving or Approaching the Shoreline

The Day of the Longboat takes place on Saturday

A pair of Lasers safely depart shore between Longboat starts-this makes Elise very happy.

and Sunday 0800-1700H. The 8-boat heats will start from the Jericho Sailing Centre 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 an unfortunate part of the race. Members of the Jericho Rescue Team will be stationed on the shore and on the water to assist anyone launching a craft or returning to shore. Please heed their advice and be extra vigilant when transiting the area.
