GSC Weekly Update
March 30, 2015
Glenmore Sailing Club
Fireball North American's and Midwinter Regattas
Three GSC sailors headed to Tampa, Florida recently to compete in the Fireball NA and 50th Midwinter regattas. Helm Liz Brennan and crew Mike Moleski, participating for the first time and Debbie Kirkby, for the 5th year, made the trip down. Four Canadian boats arrived courtesy of Newell Sailing Club member, John Cormack ( also member of the Alberta Sailing Association ) who drove 5 days each way, battling a foot of snow in Kentucky on the way down. Competitors arrived from Montreal, Ottawa, Penticton, Vancouver Island, Arizona, Ohio, Virginnia, South Carolina, Florida, England and Switzerland. Davis Island YC hosted this spectacular event in the warm waters of Tamp Bay. The sunny, hot weather with fair winds proved to be just what the sailors, who escaped winter, needed to make the event a roaring success.

GSS Learn to Cruise Course - Looking for Instructors

They are looking for any GSC members who are certified cruising instructors and could share their services for the Sailing School's evening programs. Instructors must be Sail Canada or ISPA certified. GSS is looking for GSC members to run the program because these cruising participants are the most likely to be interested in joining the club, and having a member teach the course would create opportunities for the development of personable relations with potential new members. Below are the tentative dates for the program:

Learn to Sail B Racing: May 19, 21, 23, 26, 28, 30

This program favours candidates who have never worked as a coach/instructor but have volunteered with a sailing program in the past. ASA is looking for donations and tax receipts can be issued at the amount of 250.00$ or more. For more information please refer to the ASA website.
