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.

BC Day Weekend – “Be Sea” Day @ Jericho Sailing Centre

There is something distinctive about life here on the left coast of Canada, in this province of British Columbia, that easily inspires people to follow their noses down along the salt scented Pacific air beach path, to mess around in boats at the liquidy source of all life- it is our very essence.
 
It’s not something that started in this generation or the last, or even in the time since British Columbia first boarded the good ship Canada in 1871. As long as people have lived near these sand swept, rock reinforced Pacific Ocean shorelines they have felt an intimate connection with the sea and nowhere is this more apparent today than at the Jericho Sailing Centre.
 
 
From the relatively landlocked hub bubs of Toronto, Montreal and other Canadian population centers it’s hard for non-Pacific inhabitants of our country to imagine we BC left “Coasters” without sandals, surf shorts, super shades, sunscreen, sun tanned skin and hair blowing in the wind, well bent on a good time at the beach. (Perhaps the leading catalyst for Easterners who jump ship west). On BC Day the beach is where many of us will simply “be”.

If the weather fits the long range forecast for our provincial holiday (and for the real Jericho junkies even if it doesn’t), the waves of English Bay will be streaked with the wakes of a thousand tiny ship trips launched from Jericho Beach out of Vancouver’s low cost ocean community centre. The kayak, rowboat, sailing dinghy, windsurfer, stand-up paddleboard, skim board, or other naturally powered craft you command could be among that holiday flotilla.

This Monday make plans to exercise your “Be Sea” essence. Live it up to the beat of the provincial motto “Splendor without Diminishment”, throw on your surf shorts and sandals, slap on some sunscreen and your shades, turn your back to the east with a great big smile and come celebrate BC Day at the Jericho Sailing Centre.

Maiden in Vancouver: Public Viewing Saturday, August 3

Maiden cruises past Jericho last Saturday with Theresa on the foredeck escorted by Jericho Rescue Titan and cheered by people on the Jericho Pier

 
Jericho Rescue Team member, Theresa Riedl completed her journey from Honolulu to Vancouver aboard the all female crewed “Maiden” last Saturday morning. A brisk 20 knot breeze kept many well wishers on the Jericho Pier rather than in the planned flotilla of welcoming boats, but the Jericho Sailing Centre and her Jericho Rescue Teammates were a welcoming sight at the end of Theresa’s 16 day ocean crossing.   
 
Maiden made history as the first all female crewed boat to compete in the Whitbread Round The World sailing race in 1989/90, finishing second. Maiden is currently on another round the world sailing campaign to raise awareness of women in sailing as well as womens’ empowerment and education. Theresa was chosen as a crew member for the Vancouver leg of the tour.  
 
 
Maiden is in Vancouver for the next few days before she sails on to Seattle. Anofficial welcoming ceremony will take place on Saturday, August 3rd at the St. Roch Dock in North Vancouver from 1100H-1200H with a public viewing of the vessel to follow from Noon-1600H. Everyone welcome!  
 
Several members have been to see the Maiden movie which is currently playing in Vancouver at the Cineplex Odeon International Village. Word is that it is the best sailing movie some have ever seen.
