July 4 races

We had a long wait for the wind, but when we went out, the wind picked up a good deal. Then, after a couple of races, a rain cloud showed up with some thunder, sending us all back to the club.

Windier than it looks.

Racing got off to a great start on Sunday

We were not able to race keelboats on Saturday due to the lack of wind, but on Sunday a warm, fluky wind firmed up as nine boats set out to race, producing a mix of strong gusts and quiet moments, all generally from the Northwest, but varying quite a bit in typical Falcon fashion.

We completed three races:

Our racing program can start!

As of Saturday, we can hold club races with up to 25 people, so we will start our racing season with the keelboat race on Saturday, which other boats can join as well, and the first dinghy race of the club series on Sunday. Please be ready to sail by 1 pm both days.


Here are the key elements of the updated health regulations as they affect the club:

  • Club Races can happen up to 25 people
  • Outdoor gatherings up to 25 people
  • NO PUBLIC INDOOR Gatherings
  • CANSail Programs/Day Camps open to up to 20 participants per group. 
  • Limited number of people in the Club House at once.

Next Weekend

This past weekend, a number of members did a fantastic job of moving the club sailboats out and cleaning both the lower and upper clubhouses. Most of the opening day chores have now been completed by small groups of individuals on different weekends. Thank you to all who participated.

We can’t start racing until we get authorization from Manitoba Sailing, who are in turn waiting for approval from provincial health authorities. But members can sail all they want at the club.

We can’t hold the scheduled keelboat races this coming Saturday June 19th, but let’s get as many boats out as possible (keel boats, dinghies or cats) to “Sail around the islands” Saturday afternoon starting at 1 p.m.. A proposed course will be outlined on the blackboard. We must all comply with the rule of no more than five people from no more than three households in a boat.

Club opening postponed again

Health orders don’t allow any multi-household activities, even outdoors, so the opening has to be postponed again. If health rules change in time, we will try to schedule club opening for June 12th.

We also have to postpone the start of the racing season until health rules change.

Meanwhile, individual member households can use the club grounds to get their boats ready, go sailing, and it would be a great help if you could do some chores while they are there. Penny has sent out a list of chores that need doing.
