Opening Day 2017

Today, our amazing crew of volunteer members changed the boat storage warehouse-looking clubhouse back into a vibrant sailing club, including giving us back our ‘cottage in the city’, in less than one day!

Next – Open House on April 29!

Let The Season Begin!

(To quote a famous Social Director) đŸ™‚

Yes, April is finally here along with some real snow-melting temperatures.

It won’t be long now before we’re out there getting the Site in ship-shape condition!

Lots of work to be done so please step forward to help out.

The Peak of Summer

The club and site are well-used this time of year. Water levels are down and the dock has been moved further out. The clubhouse and deck were in good shape for a well-attended Sail Past Day and BBQ (even though the weather didn’t cooperate). Propane delivery arrived in the nick of time.

Continue enjoying your cottage in the city đŸ™‚

Hot Days, Cool Water

The club was a popular place to be on Father’s Day – lots of families with children playing in the water, going to the swim dock, eating cake on the deck and of course, sailing.

Now, about getting those marshmallows to the campfire…

Thanks go to the many members who are working behind the scenes to keep the Site in very nice shape.

Beach Deck and Swim Dock are in place

Thanks to the help from many hands, those big items are in place for us to enjoy and, speaking from experience at Monday’s races, the water is certainly warming up đŸ™‚

Also, the City of Ottawa fire ban is off and our open-air fire container is now on the beach (much better than having stones explode on us!). Please review the fire permit procedures posted on the club’s bulletin board.

This week’s Site News

Thanks Rob N. for cleaning the debris off of the clubhouse roof; Bill for trimming the cedar trees; The City of Ottawa’s Forestry Department and the Y for pruning the trees along the electric line.

It’s time to plan for reinstating the deck on the beach and do some more work around the clubhouse.

The city still has a ban on open fires in place so no campfires permitted yet.

Lots of work going on around the Site and it’s good to be sailing again, too.
