Welcome to Glenmore Sailing Club, Calgary's home of sailing since 1959.
Racing Cancelled Today
Due to predicted rainfall, the reservoir management has dropped the reservoir below the level where it can be kept open. Sailing this evening is, unfortunately, cancelled.
HOWEVER, there will be a special screening at the clubhouse this evening of "Down By The Sea", a historical documentary about Australia II winning the America's Cup in 1983.
Of course, fantastic burgers from Bon Appetit will be available. There's no pre-ordering at the barge, so just tell them your order and it will be cooked fresh for you. If you pre-ordered the premium meal, it will be available too. (There will be a new way of ordering burgers for next week - stand by for details)
Everything gets going at 6:00. See you there. And we'll keep you posted about what happens with water levels for next week.
WNR#3 - The Night of Confused Winds
, First Quarter Standings
, and Photos
have been posted. An impressive turnout of 14 San Juans and 10 Lasers sailed in vintage Glenmore fickle winds under the direction of Team Windsong. The barge turned in all directions, we had beating, reaching, and running starts, all adding to the challenge of gusts up to 10 knots. However, three races were completed in fierce competition, with Anitra taking the SJs and Braden the Lasers. Some great photos were shot from the barge and Lil Juan. Let's keep the momentum going, folks, this is shaping to be a record breaking season! (F.C.)
