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
