Hello Ladies of EYC, SBYC Yacht Clubs and WSA
We are hosting an unstructured, non-competitive and informal Ladies Day on the Water, Saturday, June 11, approx. 1-4pm.
The event is titled Wind, Waves, Women and Wine or WWWW. This is the first of this event, so we shall learn and make next years event even better.
To start, this is about ladies on the water however guys are welcome if safety is an issue. There may be ladies that want to hop on other boats or may wish to go out on their own boat with partners. The focus is ladies on the helm and as well as women crew.
There will be a fun race, likely one lap. No race registration is required, no awards for finishes, no handicaps, boats will finish boat for boat. There will be a ‘start’ which will be walked thru on Channel 72, so no worries there.
Following the fun race, boats will raft up for a Wine Tasting Event and a Meet and Greet. There will be some beer onboard for those who don’t favour wine.
The Cost: $10 per lady (for the wine – payable on the boat raft) and providing a small appetizer.
How the event works:

The race will take place August 21 and 22, 2021. We're looking for volunteers to help run the race (free pizza!). Write to Fleet Captain Michael Morris, firstname.lastname@example.org, to volunteer or for details about the race. Check back here for the Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions.
This year's Spring Series Regatta ran June 12 and13. Here are the results:
Thanks to Fleet Captain Michael Morris and his race crew for all their work!
The Spring Series races will be delayed until Alberta has moved to Stage 2 Reopening. That will ease restrictions regarding adult sports which should provide greater comfort and confidence to all participants and result in more boats and crew participating. We apologize for the short notice and hope you can join us June 12 and 13.
New this year, the Wabamum PHRF handicap system is intended to make races as fair and fun as possible by establishing a personalized PHRF for each boat. The last page in the link is the 2021 Yacht Registration and Equipment Inventory Declaration form. That's just a fancy way to say "tell us a bit about your boat," so we can establish a personalized PHRF Handicap for you.
Personalized handicaps will go a long way to leveling the playing field for all boats, whether your boat has the latest Go Fast gear or is just a Basic Boat™️. If you want help filling out your PHRF form, please contact Mike Morris (email@example.com), Tim Bowles (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Julius Nemeth (email@example.com).
