Junior Sailing Update from Junior Sailing Director, Owen David

December 2017 Junior Sailing Update

Hello SLYC members.

Following another strong summer, planning for next season’s junior sailing program is well underway.

I want to thank Tom Wells for his service as Junior Sailing Director for the last 2 years. The work that Tom undertook over his term has made for an easy transition into the role. 

I would also like to thank club members Amy Drake-Jacobs, Dave Hahn, Colin Kinnear and Director John Heine for volunteering for the Junior Sailing Subcommittee. One of their first tasks was analyzing the junior sailing data from the fall survey. Thank you to all members who provided responses and comments.

Job positions for next summer were posted in early November, with the application window closing on December 31st, 2017. Please refer to the postings at www.slyc.ca.

Boat purchases for next summer are in progress, with two new Zim 420s having been already ordered and we are pursuing two new Echos to augment the CANSail levels 1 & 2 fleet.

Best wishes for happy holidays.

Owen David

Junior Sailing Director

Canada's 2016 Olympic Finn Class Representative: SLYC's Tom Ramshaw!

Stony Lake, with its challenging winds and supportive community, has a history of fostering great sailors. Now, the Stony Lake Yacht Club has the remarkable opportunity to support one of its own at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Tom Ramshaw was named to the Canadian Olympic team in the Finn class after only competing in the class for 9 months. His recent placements of 13th at The ISAF World Cup Miami, a 10th at the European Championships, an 8th at the Finn World Championship, and a 1st place finish at the North American Championships are highlights of his successes in the Finn class.

Tom is working hard to proudly represent Canada, and SLYC, this summer. Help Tom get one step closer to his dream of standing on the podium in Rio by checking out his full story and fundraising efforts in the link below. Good Luck Tom!
