Lasqueti Island Yacht Club News

Spring has sprung and the Yacht Club has started again for the 2024 season. We have lots of exciting events planned for this year and invite anyone to come and join the club.

   

We have been busy getting the laser fleet ready for summer under the guidance of our Fleet Captain Peter Steenbergen. We are hoping to start a small dry land program with the school this year in the hopes that it may grow to a full on water program in the future.

   

Any family who wants to teach their kids to sail can use the lasers if they are members of the club.  Any club member can sail the lasers as well.

   

Membership is really economical this year.  Cost is  $30.00 per adult with dependent children included. New Memberships and renewals can be paid at any of our events. Our Membership Coordinators are Louise Zinsli and Sharon Chesham and both will be happy to sign you up to be a Lasqueti Yacht Club Member. Payment can also be made by e-transfer to sharon@thefudgery.com New members will have to fill out some easy paperwork before taking part in any event.
 

We are excited to announce the launching of the Lasqueti Yacht Club Recipe book: June 9 at the Teapot House 4:00-7:00.  This will be our first event of the year and an opportunity to view or purchase the new cookbook, pay your membership fee and gather together to celebrate our fun loving club. The book is a fundraiser for the club and also an opportunity to promote the LYC to new members. Come and enjoy yummy appetizers, $3 wine bar (or BYOB)

Cheers! - Doug Dobbyn, Past Commodore

RAFT UPS
Along with the club activities listed above, Fleet Captain Peter Steenburgen will be organizing Water Raft Ups in various locations including a cruise around the island. All members are welcome to bring their own boats and for those without a boat can always catch a ride with another member. Some Raft Ups will be only for membership and some will be open to non members. We will advise which raft ups are membership only. Just a note that raft ups are often short notice as they are weather dependent and member availability.  Bring your favorite appetizer and refreshments.

Hope to see you all on the water,
Vice commodore Richard Chesham
