Ahoy JSCA Members:
Here is what's "in the wind", coming events and items of interest at the Jericho Sailing Centre, your ocean access community centre, for July 12-July 18, 2007 and beyond:

That's right, walk, run, cycle, jog, cab it, bus it, fly, levitate, use a transporter or travel cosmically just don't bring your car and expect to park it because the annual Jericho Folk Fest is occupying Jericho Beach Park all weekend and parking spaces will be rarer than shaved legs at the festival. JSCA Staff and volunteers will be patrolling the 20 minute loading zone to ensure it is kept clear for users of the Jericho Sailing Centre to load and of load people & gear---please do not park in the loading zone or you will be towed.
