A New Home

Due to circumstances beyond our control we had to detach our floats and move our home base.

It was not a small undertaking. We had to chain up our floats, wait for high tide and move everything at once to the Royal Reach Marina.

Thanks to Russ for giving us a tow and Dennis and Brian for riding the floats all the way down the bay.

Robert mounted his Go Pro to one of the floats and got a pretty cool video of the transfer.


August BBQ and Sail

We decided to have a second BBQ on the shores of Porpoise Bay this summer. With most of the club doing staycations in this crazy year of 2020 what is better then sailing on the Sechelt Inlet and a BBQ on the dock?

The sun was shining the wind was fair but from constant and from the south as usual.

Dennis Brought the burgers, Grzegorz brough the salad, Kenny brought the BBQ, Robert brought the condiments,  Kim brought the buns and Brian Lyseng brought desert!. All and all it was a co-operative effort. Which is more then we can say for what happens on the course. LOL.

Why don’t we have any photos of us on the course? Well we don’t have any chase boats or race committees this year and were too busy racing ourselves!


2020 Canada Day BBQ

Under colder then normal conditions and overcast skies, the Sunshine Coast Sailing Club has a Canada Day BBQ on the Club’s floats. With our small numbers and outdoor space, it was easy to pull something together while keeping safe.

Several members had Canada Flags flying from the masts.

Many thanks to Thomas and Carol for organizing this event. Kenny brought down his hibachi, and Brian has the burgers and potato salad. Carol and Diana will open the wine to start the Canada Day celebration.

We had done this once before and though it was a great idea. Glad the rain held off for the day. We know others on the South Coast of BC weren’t so lucky.

2019 Poise Cove Classic Recap

The 2019 Poise Cove Classic Regatta and BBQ took place on Sunday, July 28, 2019, under hot conditions and sunny skies. The wind was patchy and variable which gave everyone a challenge but Grzegorz Krolikowski who blew away the competition winning all five races.

The seven racers that entered this annual regatta then had a BBQ on the floats. To Celebrate Grzegorz win we made him cook the burgers. 😂⛵☀️

There was no race committee this year and as such no race photographer. But we have some images from the BBQ afterwards taken by Robert Dall.

If you want to join the fun drop us a line or comment below and will be in touch!

What a great 2018 sailing season

We had a great season of sailing this year, with our new float we have more opportunity than ever to get out on the water, and we certainly took advantage of the great weather this summer.

We’d like to thank all the water taxi’s and float plane operators Sunshine Coast Air and Harbour Air for sharing porpoise bay and being good neighbours out on the water.

Also thanks to the Lighthouse Pub for our donated some old deck chairs that we quite enjoyed this season.

Here are some late season photos to savour.
