All hands on deck!
Sadly, the end of the 2017 sailing season is quickly approaching. We need the effort of all members to help put away the boats, pull out the docks and get the site all tucked-in for the the coming winter months. Closing Day is scheduled for Saturday October 21, 2017 starting at 9:00 A.M (Coffee and pastries will be provided) . This is a rain-or-shine event. Sturdy footwear, warm layers of clothing and a good pair of work gloves are recommended.
In order to maximise our time on site, and to make the work party that much more enjoyable, we are asking for volunteers to bring pots of chilli, buns, lunch meats, spreads, desserts etc… Please reach out to Annie Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org for coordination, or more details.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on closing day!

KSC Launch Day is next Saturday, April 25… less than one week to go! All hands on deck. Don’t forget to bring your completed membership form and cheque! We’ll even be able to accept credit card payments this year (but credit card fees cost the club money, so please pay by cheque if you can).
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 (email@example.com) or Mary Neumann, past Commodore at the Canadian Albacore Association (firstname.lastname@example.org). 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!!
The Kanata Sailing Club’s Annual General Meeting is on Thursday November 20th from 7-9pm at the Beaverbrook Library (Campeau Drive west of Teron Road in Kanata), in meeting room “A”.
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.
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!
