SLSC Safety and Other Reminders

Boat Launch

SLSC is proud to be a part of the Sturgeon Point and broader community, and recognizes the support and generosity of our friends and neighbours.  The club, in return, has always been happy to allow the community the use of its private boat launch, but we must remind everyone of the following rule:

For the safety of our sailors, use of the club boat launch by the community must be outside of the hours of our club program, which typically means weekday afternoons after 2:00, and on weekends, assuming we are not hosting a regatta, or similar activity.  If in doubt, we encourage you to communicate in advance with the head instructors, who can be reached at: 

Bike Safety

Please remind your children who are biking to club on their own, of some of the fundamental safety rules! e.g.  (a) stay to the right, (b) ride single file, (c) use the bike path for the final stretch, (d) wear a helmet, and (e) have bike lights after dark.

Many may be surprised to learn that the law requires helmet use by any bicyclist under the age of 18, and non-compliance is subject to a fine of $80.  "Parents or guardians shall not knowingly permit cyclists under sixteen to ride without a helmet".

(Thank you to Judy Havercourt, and David Lightbound for trimming up the bushes along the bike path to make it all the more accessible).

VHF Course Follow up

Thank you to those of you who responded to our earlier query about this.  We think we have enough interest to go ahead.  Final cost will be dependent upon total numbers, and how many people can share the pre-reading materials.  Our objective is to keep the cost down as much as possible.  We anticipate it will be less than $100 per person  (count on it being between $65 and $100).  We are tentatively scheduling it for Saturday or Sunday July 22nd or 23rd.  If you would be interested in obtaining this certification, and are available that weekend, please let us know via email:
Recap' of the previous notice: "To operate a Marine Radio, it is required by law to have the Restricted Operator Certificate (Maritime).  We are planning on offering a clinic to obtain certification at the club, with our own Meagan Woodman providing instruction, and testing."
