    Winter Long Distance #2

    SNSYC has an active, year-round racing program that offers both distance and round-the-buoys racing. In the winter we race on Sundays and in warmer months we race on Wednesday evenings as well as some Sundays. In addition, we also organize the overnight Patos Island Race in the Spring, the Challenging Racing and Social Happenings (CRASH) Regatta in late Summer and participate in similar races and regattas organized by other clubs as part of the Vancouver Island Racing Series (VIRS).

    Sunday Walks 

    The walks always start at 1400hrs and last between 1.25 and 2 hours and are graded as to difficulty (a one booter is dead easy, a four booter is the most difficult we attempt) so you can decide if the walk is suitable for you.

    Friends, relatives and dogs are more than welcome to accompany members on these walks.

    Although the Sunday walks will show up on the Event Calendar, we communicate the details by email shortly before the scheduled walk.

    Members - If you wish to be included on the email list, go to your “Profile Page”, scroll down to “Club Interests” and put a check mark in the “Walking” selection. (Don’t forget to save your changes)

    If you think that you might want to join one of the walks, or want to find out a bit more about them, please contact Adrian Kershaw

    So, join the walking group for a chance to keep up with old friends, make new ones and get some exercise in the bargain!

    Great news!  Jon Preston, member of the club since 2003, is willing to teach bridge at SNSYC.  Jon became a Bridge Life Master in 1986, and in 2016 completed the Better Bridge Course Certificate approved by the American Contract Bridge League.  He has taught in local clubs and on cruise ships.

    The beginner course that Jon will teach is a long-standing course developed by Audrey Grant.  There are eight lessons, each about 75 minutes, or 90 minutes with a break.  There is an accompanying soft-cover book.  Jon has a couple of copies and can order more, but the books are not important for the first two lessons.  They are not available in bookstores, but Jon buys the books online and they will cost about $15.  

    Jon has offered to teach the course for $40 for members ($60 for non-members).  The usual charge for the course is $80.

    If you miss classes 1 or 2 you can catch up.  It is NOT possible to catch up if you miss any classes from 3 onwards.  

    You can attend either on Wednesdays or Saturdays.  

    Register at the club bar.

    Speaker Series

    RUM RUNNING ON THE WEST COAST

    Presentation by Rick James

    Join maritime historian Rick James to find out what really went down along the West Coast during prohibition.  Contrary to popular perception, rum-running along the Pacific was usually carried out in a relatively civilized manner, with an oh-so-Canadian politeness on the British Columbian side. But there were indeed shootouts, hijackings and even a particularly gruesome murder associated with the business.

    Rick will have some of his books for sale at $35 each (incl. taxes).

    If you do buy one (or more) please pay with cash or cheque.

    An interesting Topic - To be Announced

    Presented by an engaging speaker


    Each Speakers' Series event is preceded by a special buffet prepared by our Chef and his staff and is served at 18:00.

    The dishes Chef prepares are often inspired by the topic of the talk. In the past we’ve dined in style on French, Mexican, Russian, British, and Thai cuisines, just to mention a few. 

    Contact the staff at the club to book seats for the Buffet.

    Starting at 19:15, we are treated to an illustrated talk by SNSYC members or presenters from the wider community.

    The presentations deal with such things as sailing exploits, travelling on foot and by bicycle in foreign lands, cruising on ships and canal boats, environmental issues and much more.

    Great news!  Jon Preston, member of the club since 2003, is willing to teach bridge at SNSYC.  Jon became a Bridge Life Master in 1986, and in 2016 completed the Better Bridge Course Certificate approved by the American Contract Bridge League.  He has taught in local clubs and on cruise ships.

    The beginner course that Jon will teach is a long-standing course developed by Audrey Grant.  There are eight lessons, each about 75 minutes, or 90 minutes with a break.  There is an accompanying soft-cover book.  Jon has a couple of copies and can order more, but the books are not important for the first two lessons.  They are not available in bookstores, but Jon buys the books online and they will cost about $15.  

    Jon has offered to teach the course for $40 for members ($60 for non-members).  The usual charge for the course is $80.

    If you miss classes 1 or 2 you can catch up.  It is NOT possible to catch up if you miss any classes from 3 onwards.  

    You can attend either on Wednesdays or Saturdays.

    Speaker Series

    An interesting Topic - To be Announced

    Presented by an engaging speaker


    Each Speakers' Series event is preceded by a special buffet prepared by our Chef and his staff and is served at 18:00.

    The dishes Chef prepares are often inspired by the topic of the talk. In the past we’ve dined in style on French, Mexican, Russian, British, and Thai cuisines, just to mention a few. 

    Contact the staff at the club to book seats for the Buffet.

    Starting at 19:15, we are treated to an illustrated talk by SNSYC members or presenters from the wider community.

    The presentations deal with such things as sailing exploits, travelling on foot and by bicycle in foreign lands, cruising on ships and canal boats, environmental issues and much more.

    The walks always start at 1400hrs and last between 1.25 and 2 hours and are graded as to difficulty (a one booter is dead easy, a four booter is the most difficult we attempt) so you can decide if the walk is suitable for you.

    Friends, relatives and dogs are more than welcome to accompany members on these walks.

    Although the Sunday walks will show up on the Event Calendar, we communicate the details by email shortly before the scheduled walk.

    Members - If you wish to be included on the email list, go to your “Profile Page”, scroll down to “Club Interests” and put a check mark in the “Walking” selection. (Don’t forget to save your changes)

    If you think that you might want to join one of the walks, or want to find out a bit more about them, please contact Adrian Kershaw

    So, join the walking group for a chance to keep up with old friends, make new ones and get some exercise in the bargain!
