Members helping during Launch Day

Launch Day Next Saturday 9am-3pm

April 22 is Next Weekend!

Start thinking about your best chili recipe for the potluck, and email Tom soon at social@kanatasailingclub.com if you plan to bring one.

We hope to see plenty of members, old and new, at the club working together to start getting boats and the clubhouse ready for the new sailing season. This event takes place rain or shine.

To bring:

  • gloves and work wear
  • battery powered tools if you have ’em
  • items that you volunteered to store over the winter 

Our exciting plans for the day:

  • Flipping and rigging the RS Quests and Fevas
  • Moving Lasers & Bytes out of the clubhouse and assembling their dollies
  • Taking the Optis out from under the deck to the beach
  • Moving the power boats down to the beach
  • Getting the dock setup in the water
  • Potluck chili when we wrap for the day (BYOB if desired)

We’re fortunate that certain resourceful members have offered to lend us their generator for keeping chili crock-pots warm. That’s right, no hydro as yet, but watch for brand new overhead lines as you drive down the club access road!

Looking forward to hitting the water and the new deck with everyone. See you next weekend.

2015 Albacore Internationals in Sarasota, Florida

If you’ve been thinking you might like to attend the Albacore Internationals in Sarasota, Florida this coming March, then please send an email to the KSC Commodore (ksc.commodore@gmail.com) or Mary Neumann, past Commodore at the Canadian Albacore Association (menumannto@gmail.com).   If you are you looking for a helm, a crew, a car, a trailer, a place to stay or just encouragement to go and have a great time, we can help get you set up with other Albacore sailors from the KSC or the Ottawa area.

Let’s see how many boats we can get down to Florida!!

Alymer Island Event: Saturday, August 9

Are you looking for an excuse to get out for a sail?   Then you’ll want to be at the Club this Saturday.  All KSC members are invited to come out for a Sail to Alymer this coming Saturday.   Originally this event was planned as a sail to Alymer Island.  After the success of the Sailpast, several members have suggested that Alymer Marina is a better destination.

Gather at the Club for noon and we’ll decide where we’re going then.  Be ready to set sail at 1:00 P.M.

This is intended to be a casual affair with no specific agenda.  Come on out and enjoy a great sail with good company to a fun destination.

2014 SailPast: Saturday, July 19

Come for the sail and dinner or just for dinner.
Skippers meeting at 11am.
BBQ at 5pm.
Please RSVP before July 11th for dinner and indicate if you would prefer steak or chicken. Send RSVP to Ken at ksc.social@gmail.com.
Looking forward to seeing you there !

KSC Albacore Sailors at NOD

Hats off Jim, Jake, Tom and Robert, KSC members who raced KSC boats at the Nepean One Design regatta this past weekend (June 21/22).   Happily, the wind showed up for Sunday and the sailing was great.   Apres-sail on the deck afterwards was pretty good too.  🙂

Thanks for flying the KSC colours!
