Rookie Racing Clinic THIS SUNDAY
There is no better way to improve your sailing skills than to get out and race. Come out to the JSCA's Rookie Racing Seminar on Saturday, July 11 at the crack of 0900H. We take the legalese mumble jumble of Sail Racing Rules and explain them in the simplest barnacle brain terms. This program is free as the wind to JSCA members or $79 +GST for non-members.
Send us Your Pictures
We are looking for "Jericho style" photos to spice up our website, newsletter and promote the Jericho Sailing Centre.
Thanks to JSCA Rescue Safety Officer Andrew Balakshin for sending us this photo of an RS 500 on a screaming reach taken from Albatross at Tuesday Nite Racing.
The Cover Photo was taken by Sea Otter last Sunday as "The Salish Sea Journey" landed for a lunchbreak in front of the Jericho Sailing Centre. The Pulling Together Canoe Society and the Renfew Collingwood Aboriginal Youth Canoe Club organized the journey that had law enforcement officers and aboriginal people travelling in canoes starting at Port Moody, to West Vancouver, to Musqueam, to Richmond, to Tsawwassen and ending in White Rock.

English Bay Safety Seminar July 26
The English Bay Safety Seminar was developed for users of the Jericho Sailing Centre to help keep them safe at play on the waters of English Bay. The seminar covers basic water safety fundamentals along with user specific information drawn from the logs of the Jericho Rescue Team who have intervened in thousands of "sea disasters" over the past 36 years.  
Why make your own mistakes when you can learn from the mistakes of others? Don't challenge Darwin's theory, make sure your water safety knowledge is the fittest it can be. Your survival may well depend upon it. Find the missing links and fill in the gaps in your water safety knowledge by attending a FREE English Bay Safety Seminar July 26 & August 16. 1900H RSVP JSCA office.
Mal de mer
JSCA member, Hobie sailor and professionional Set Designer Jesse Garlick has asked us to pass on the following info on his current production which may be of interest to the more culturally adept seafaring folk of Jericho
"Mal de mer" Presented by the 2010 Dancing on the Edge Festival
Intimate and expansive, Mal de mer is a lexicon of dance made up of sea songs, scottish jigs and explosive gestures. This wryly-constructed dance piece dives into the physicality of being unsteady, off balance and slightly askew, revealing the depths of our stormy relationship to the sea, even if sometimes, it just makes us sick to our stomachs.
An outdoor work, Mal de mer will take place in Crab Park, July 9-11th, 2010 as part of Vancouver's Dancing on the Edge festival. Created by Susan Elliott and Tanya Marquardt, two nationally and internationally recognized dance and theatre artists, Mal de mer includes set design and sailcloth  installation by Jesse Garlick and Barnaby Killam, sound design performed live by Emma Hendrix, costume design by Nita Bowerman and dramaturgy by Heidi Taylor. 
Mal de mer is accompanied by a live sound score heard through individual audience headsets and a radio transmitter. Please come early to receive your headset, and dress for the weather as Mal de mer is an outdoor performance. There will be a limited number of seats for those who need them, however feel free to bring a lawn chair. 
Mal de mer is made possible with the generous support of the BC Arts Council, The Dance Centre, The Caravan Farm Theatre, The City of Vancouver, and the Firehall Arts Centre.
Tickets $15

Despite many "Danger No Swimming" signs marking the area between the Jericho Pier and the rock groyne to the east there are still problems with swimmers in this busy boat only area. Incredibly, some of these swimmers are JSCA members. Members, of all people, should be aware of the potential hazard and are not exempt from the Vancouver Park Board Bylaw. It is also dangerous to allow small children to wade or play near the shoreline. This is the only beach area in Vancouver dedicated exclusively to naturally powered watercraft and as such is not a lifeguarded wading, swimming, bathing area.
