​The next windsurfing clinic will take place this Saturday August 9th at 12:30 to 5pm.  Hope you can make it.  Club equipment will be available for learning, practicing and trying new techniques.  Please provide your own PFD and wetsuit if think you need one.  

Wednesday night and Sunday afternoon sailing continues until the end of August.

Details, dates of the Corn Cob Event and Club Activity day to be announced in a later newsletter.

A very successful kayaking clinic was held at the sailing club on July 4.
Although it was a bit blustery for the morning lesson, twelve kayakers from
age 9 - adult thoroughly enjoyed learning the basics of kayaking. Due to
high demand, a second beginner class ran in the afternoon along with the
level 2 lesson which focused on advanced paddling and rescue techniques.
Thanks to High Level Canoes and Kayaks from Lethbridge for bringing
instructors and a large selection of boats and equipment to Lake Newell.

In spite of the of inclement weather the winds were great and Saturday's Aug 23rd event saw a lot of sailors, windsurfers and kayakers out for the poker run.  This year's winner went to a Kayak paddler, Larry VanPypen.  Congratulations on his winning hand of 4 of a kind.  This was followed by an excellent roast beef dinner and potluck.  This weekend also saw a group of Laser Masters out sailing Lake Newell.  It was nice to see so many sailing club members and guest out sailing Lake Newell.
