Racing

The Sylvan Lake Sailing Club (SLSC) offers a variety of racing opportunities for its members each season.

2020 Season – Notice of Cancellation of Racing Season

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all club events including racing, social events for the 2020 season have been cancelled until further notice. With the current Alberta Public Health orders in place the club cannot host a race or any event, while also complying with physical distancing requirements. As an organized sports club, Sailing Club activities may only open when the Province of Alberta reaches Stage 3 of the relaunch strategy, and even then only under certain conditions.

To Be Advised

The Hummer

Each year, the SLSC ends its racing season with a bang at the End of Summer Hummer. The Hummer is a great chance to gather with other members for a final social and some exciting sailing in a two-day regatta.

September 11 &12, 2020

Pursuit Races

Each year, the Club organizes a few pursuit or novelty races on Saturdays or Sundays. Details are included in the yearly schedule.

The sailing instructions for Pursuit Races will be discussed Dockside at a Skipper’s Meeting prior to each event.

Regattas

In addition to the Pursuit Races, there are two club Regattas: the Commodore’s Cup and the Memorial Cup. These events are normally held on Saturdays and are great preparation for the End of Summer Hummer. See the Club schedule for dates and details. Trophies for these regattas are presented at the Fall Club Meeting.

The sailing instructions for Regattas will be discussed at a Skipper’s Meeting held dockside, prior to the racing event.

Ice Breaker Cup

This prestigious trophy, which consists of a Bottle of Rum, is awarded each Fall Meeting to the crew of the first boat each spring to brave the ice and cold water and sail to the sand-banks at Jarvis Bay Provincial Park and back. It’s often been known to occur under the cloak of secrecy, with only photographic evidence as proof.
