Joy of Framing Race  

we will be raising money for partners for youth to send deserving kids

to the sailing program with Second Nature Outdoors.

The Joy of Framing has donated a beautifully framed picture that will be

awarded to the boat that raises the most charity money.

Gosling’s rum has given me some swag so we will have some other prizes to give out.

Hopefully a great weekend sailing

We hope to hold a series of four races for this regatta;

two on Saturday and

two on Sunday.  Weather and conditions permitting of course.

Skippers’ meetings will be at noon each day and as usual

we will broadcast instructions to racers on vhf channel 71,

After the races on Saturday

we invite you to bring your choice to BBQ.  We will supply the BBQs and propane!

Please bring Potluck side dishes.

Info on Mooring Inspection

Douglas Harbour Mooring Inspection & Maintenance

All who own a mooring in Douglas Harbour should have it inspected every couple of years.  There have been several boats that have broken away from moorings and damage to your own or a neighbour’s vessel is an unhappy event that should be avoided.  We are fortunate to have a well-qualified diver residing very close to the Douglas Harbour wharf with a pontoon boat and necessary equipment.  Here is the information on his services; please contact him (better still team up with another boater) to have your mooring inspected:

Sylvain Jutras, Diver in Douglas Harbour

The price is $65 per dive/ tank. So when I go check a mooring and it requires a chain replacement, the dive to replace the chain is included in the $65. I don’t expect someone to purchase a chain until he knows if it requires one or not. If a mooring needs to be moved then they can contact me for a quote as it will be more as I need to get lift drums and extra air for the lift. If it is a search then I go back again to $65 per tank.

My email is jjutras2@hotmail.com and tel # 385-2490 for contact information. I will be available after the 15th of June so if they contact me I can set a date with them according to work schedule and weather. The mooring holder should be there when I do the inspection.

Same will apply to club members. The difference for club members is that I can dive any time after the 27th of May but due to a family wedding I will not be available between the 9th and 13th of June. If it is an emergency between those dates, contact me and I will see what I can do as I will still be in the area.
