Calendar of Events
The cleanup on Sept 23 went well. Many jobs were done. The planned Oct 17th winter preparation day and potluck has now been cancelled due to most or all necessary jobs being completed and expected low attendance. Look forward to New Year's day social. More to follow on that later.
The club purchased two better quality kayaks recently for training and re-sale. Contact Larry/Betty VanPypen for info. vanpypen 'at' cciwireless.ca
The best season for kayaking is approaching fast. If you are interested in learning more about this popular pastime and learning from some very experienced kayakers contact Larry or Betty. Small donation required. Picture and more info on windsurfing/kayaking page.

From the pictures it looks like a great venue for a regatta.
Thank you to all who came out Saturday Aug 22 for the Corn Cob Regatta. Special thanks to Amy and Kieran Mills for setting up the "scrabble" scramble. Everyone seemed to enjoy the sailing, the game and of course the great potluck after. Combing points from the actual regatta finish order plus the points from the Scrabble game, first place went to Bette Van Pypen, second to John Cormack and third to Mike Sonnie.
Prairie Wind Regatta Success
Thanks to the efforts of members of the club another successful regatta was hosted. The Seaspray and Fireball Nationals were completed as well. The competitors were treated to a variety of wind conditions and on Sunday the winds were very strong. We really appreciate the time and effort of our members and non members who help to put this on. Results are posted on the Regatta page.
