No one in the mood to launch a dinghy in the cool, brisk wind on Sunday, so we walked the McGillivray trail instead…
A select subcommittee of the keel boat caucus* is proposing sailing down to Picnic Island after the races on Saturday July 18 for a BBQ. If all interested sailors bring their own plates, utensils, etc, we can have COVID-careful picnic.
Boats sail away from the club before 5 pm. [weather permitting…]

In light of the Manitoba government’s announcements on Wednesday, the FYC Board understands that many of our members will be wondering what the gradual reopening means for our club. As some of the restrictions in Manitoba begin to ease, the FYC Board is continuing to monitor the directions from the provincial government and health officials, and determine the best course of action for how and when we may proceed with our club opening in a manner that ensures the safety of our members.
As it stands, the new orders maintain the gathering size limit of no more than 10 people at any indoor or outdoor premises, which provides us with a unique challenge. For details, of the Manitoba government’s phased in plan to support the gradual restoring of services and opening of businesses in Manitoba, see the Province of Manitoba’s official web page: Restoring safe services.
Sail Manitoba has a Board meeting via Zoom on May 6, at which the question of Sail Manitoba and its members clubs will be the primary focus. We will provide our members with an update on when and how our club opening will proceed after the Sail Manitoba Board meeting.
Until then, all the best.
Lovely evening for the BBQ; our biggest problems were finding room on the grill and managing the output…
