July 21, 2021
Ahoy! Captains and Skippers,
An email has been sent out to the membership with more details,
conditions, and protocols to follow to allow the startup of our
River Race Program, including a modified race course. There will
only be one race season this year, taking place on Saturdays,
starting July 31 (possibly for 8 races) and all races are to be
monitored and documented.
Ontario Sailing has
approved the restart of all sailing activities and racing in
Ontario, providing protocols are being followed.
Hence we hope to see you soon out on the water.

June 1, 2021
Good Morning Fellow Sailors!
This is a quick email to update you on the busy week ahead as we
look forward to splashing our boats into the river. You have a
little under one week left to do final prep on your boats and ensure
your mooring lines are in place.
Mandatory Launch Safety Meeting - Thursday at 5pm
The safety meeting will take place at 5:00pm this coming Thursday,
June 3rd on Zoom. The link, meeting ID, and passcode are shown in an
email sent to all members. A reminder that the safety meeting is
mandatory for all skippers or their delegates who will be
participating in the Launch.
Launch - Friday at 7:30am
Sterling Crane will be on site with the first boat being hoisted by
8am Friday, June 4th. Please plan to be on site by 7:30 to be
prepared. Please wear proper worksite PPE as well as a face mask in
case you need to come within 6' of another member. This will be
reviewed during the safety meeting. Similar to last year, there will
not be refreshments provided at Launch due to the pandemic, so
please bring your own snacks and refreshments.
Cradle Party - Saturday at 10am
In an effort to free up future weekends for more sailing adventures,
we are scheduling the Cradle Party for the day immediately following
Launch (Saturday, June 5th). Please meet at the Club at 10am. Phil
will have the trailer ready to move the cradles up to Sault Search
and Rescue. Many hands make light work, so please plan to attend.
Thanks for your flexibility as we navigate changing restrictions.
I'm excited to finally get the boats into the water and hear the
sound of halyards on masts around Topsail Island. See you next
Thursday evening on Zoom!
All the best, Devon Clark, ASC Commodore.
Date - June 4 2021
May 18, 2021
Algoma Sailing Club Members,
With last week’s extension to the provincial Stay-At-Home orders now
ending on June 2nd, ASC has pushed Launch back by one week to
Friday, June 4th. We continue to hope that the orders will receive
no further extensions and that Launch can proceed on that date.
Information regarding the safety meeting to be held on Thursday,
June 3rd by Zoom will be sent out closer to that date.
Soon enough, we will be sailing! All the best, Commodore Devon
April 22, 2021
For 2021 we have some new elected executive members, and our new
Commodore is Devon Clark. With much discussion during the last
executive meeting, Devon has released an ASC Membership Update
concerning the delayed Crane Launch. The secretary has emailed the
update out to all of the ASC members.
ASC Membership Update
As you may have assumed following the Ford government's increased
restrictions issued on April 16th that run until May 20th, our
launch date has been postponed. Recognizing that the situation in
the Province is fluid and subject to change, we have optimistically
rescheduled the crane for Launch on Friday, May 28th.
Additional COVID-19 Restrictions
1) In addition to our previous closure of the top floor of the Club
House, the ASC Executive have decided to close all areas of the Club
2) While the Executive
have chosen not to close the grounds at this time, the entrance will
remain gated, we would ask all members to abide by the spirit of the
Stay-At-Home order in limiting access to the grounds as much as
possible. If, when attending the Club you notice a number of other
members on site, we would ask you to consider returning when fewer
people are present. Please wear a face mask unless you are alone on
your own boat or with members of your household. Wash your hands
often and if you are symptomatic, please stay home.
One Final Note
3) Ron Wilson has asked to remind all members that hazardous waste
(oil, gasoline, paint, etc.) is not to be disposed of in the normal
green waste container. Ideally, please remove these items from site
and dispose of them at the City Hazardous Waste Disposal Site on
Fifth Line. There will be a suitable plastic container placed
outside the Club House close to the bins if you need a place to
dispose of hazardous waste on site.
Thank you for your understanding during these difficult, changing
times. We look forward to sailing once we are able to get the boats
in the water.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
All the best, Devon Clark, ASC Commodore

General Meeting 2021
March 8, 2021
Usually in mid February our combined Spring Banquet and Annual
General Meeting are scheduled to gear up excitement for the new
seasons operation. Due to the province's current gathering
restrictions, the Banquet portion is once again cancelled, and thus
the Executive delayed the Annual General Meeting to meet in March.
The Algoma Sailing Club's Annual General Meeting is purposed
for Wednesday March 24 at 19:00 hrs. It will be conducted live,
online, using the ZOOM video
Club Members will soon receive an email containing more
details and the Zoom session id and password. Club Members should
ensure the day before; that the latest version of Zoom has been
upgraded on their devices, and that your microphone and camera are
operational. There could be 30 attendees attending online hence with
less interruptions or delays, will ensure a smoother flow for the
meeting. Ahoy! Matey! Avast!

Yup, sorry to mention it, but its time for Skippers to think about
• The Cradle Moving and Setting party will be held on Saturday
October 03 2020
• The Pre-Haul-Out Safety and Coordination Meeting for all
Skippers, or Representatives, for each boat will be held the evening

• The Crane is booked for Saturday October 10, 2020.
This initial meeting will most probably via Zoom, as we did for
launch this season. Details to be announced later.
Before the event, Ron will verify with Skippers to confirm
• Haul-out at ASC, which boats are being hoisted on the day either
on to a cradle and remaining on the hard for the winter season.
• Those that will take out boats via the ramp (either at ASC or at
other [e.g. Bellevue Marina])

July 29, 2020
As we continue to operate under the now relaxed COVID-19
restrictions, many members are enjoying some sailing about in their
vessels. At this time, the Executive and I do not believe that we
can resume any official racing events.
Docks and Things:
I could not help but notice that our docks have been host to a fair
number of vessels; some of which have been there for quite some
time. As everyone should be aware, vessels not requiring the use of
shore facilities should not be left on the docks, and should be
transferred to their mooring. Vessels remaining on the docks prevent
the use of shore facilities by others who may need them. You should
also be aware that vessels tied to the docks during a storm, or
strong winds are more likely to cause damage to the docking
facilities, as well as the vessel itself. The safest place for your
vessel is on its mooring! If you DO NOT REQUIRE docking facilities,
please DO NOT leave your vessel docked for extended amounts of time.
Also please note, for those looking for work hours, there is an
ongoing list available on the wall inside the lower Clubhouse.
Please make sure to record your hours in the book provided, and mark
any completions of items on the list. There may be another work
party for this Thursday. Watch for an email with further details.
At last, we are sailing.
Thank you, Alan McLean, Commodore
Spring Series and Race Barbeques.
June 5, 2020
As a reminder, Due to the Covid-19 situation, Sail Ontario
advised it's sailing clubs (on May 26) of what services are
permitted and that "Social Events" and "Club Race Nights" were not
permitted, and hence the "Spring Race Series" and the "Spring Race
Barbeques" have been cancelled.
there would only be time for 2 or 3 races out of 7 due to the late
crane launch and then mast raising it doesn't justify the spring
series to be even run.)
Currently only independent recreational sails of persons from
your household are permitted. When Sail Ontario notifies us that the
situation has improved then the membership will be advised.
Possibly, the Summer and Fall Races could take place but; operate in
a different fashion, under a new set of rules, or, due to revised
social distancing requirements.
Sail Ontario also advised that Clubhouses are deemed closed,
except for washrooms and emergency services. Hence the upstairs
clubhouse's lounge, washrooms, and kitchen are closed, but access to
the both the lower level washrooms and telephone are available.
Be aware of the date that local Marina Services close for the
season, to ensure you have time to pump out the "head" and tank of

After being delayed for a over month due to
Covid-19, the Algoma Sailing Club on June 5 was permitted to Launch the
Fleet using Sterling's Crane. Social distancing and protective
equipment was used and due to Covid-19 some members requested that their
boats where to remain on land. The crane launch took a bit more time this
year as boats left on land had to be repositioned to the edges of the
parking lot to open up access to the clubhouse. Overall the crane launch was
a safe and successful.

June 4, 2020
The majority of Captains have advised that they will proceed
with the preparation and launching of their vessels, while a few
have chosen to have their vessels remain in storage for this
season. Consequently, these vessels will need to relocated as to
not impede the continued safety and operation of the Club.
Therefore the Launching of vessels will be conducted in tandem
with these relocations. The exact details of this will be
provided in a preceding update following the consolidation of
those plans this evening.
A Safety Meeting will be conducted at 5:00 PM, Thursday, June
4th, via the ZOOM platform. Two time slots have been booked. The
links for these are provided within an email sent to all
members. The second session will be utilized if the first does
not provide enough time to conduct the meeting. To participate,
you must either download and install the ZOOM software, or you
may simply click on the links provided, and follow the prompts
to join the meeting.
If using downloaded ZOOM software, it is highly recommended that
you install and test the software in order receive the best
benefit in attending the meeting. The software is free, but does
require some familiarization to use efficiently. As noted
previously, if not utilizing the downloaded software, you can

With the pandemic still hot on our heels, there will be extra
measures taking place which will be explained at the safety
meeting. We will be making every effort to be operating as safe
as possible during operations. Please try and locate a mask for
yourself, work gloves are a good idea, and safety footwear. If
you have your own hard hat and visi-vest (reflective safety
vest), please bring it along but otherwise the club does have a
collection of these. We are trying to provide some soap and
sanitizer on site, but if you have your own please bring it

As usual, we will be making every effort to be operating as safe
as possible during operations. On top of the personal safety
equipment members must wear during Launch operations such as
hard hats, visi-vests and steel toed footwear, please bring a
mask to help protect others. Remember to wash your hands, not
touch your face, and maintain social distancing as much as
possible. You will need your mask especially in circumstances
when social distancing is not possible.
In preparation, it is
strongly suggested that all members with computers, tablets, or
smart phones become familiar with the ZOOM conferencing platform

Newsletter: 2020 Launch Is Almost Here.
May 31, 2020
As we all are aware, this is a year like no other. There has
been a great deal of speculation as to whether or not we would
be able launch our boats this year, and as to the possibility
that they may not be retrievable in the fall. Like many others,
I have also pondered over these questions.
Through our communications with the Ontario Sailing Association
(OSA), the consensus is that the Fall Haul-Out will not be
cancelled due to the amount of pressure that would be exerted on
the Government from the Insurance Companies, and the influence
of many OSA members.
The Executive and I have spent many hours working toward the
bringing about of a successful launch on Friday, June 5th, 2020,
while maintaining a safe environment for all Members.
A few requests have been received from Captains not wishing to
launch their vessels due to these, and other concerns. The
Executive and I have reviewed these requests with regard to
their merit, feasibility, and overall impact on the Club and the
Much consideration was given toward the logistics of permitting
these vessels to remain in their current positions. However,
this was determined to be undesirable. This would restrict the
safe access to Club facilities, adversely affect the safety of
both the vessels and Club Members. These vessels will therefore
need to be relocated at Launch, and possibly again at the time
of Haul-Out, requiring the use of crane services in both
Consequently, after much deliberation, it was determined that it
will not be possible to exempt the owners of these vessels from
having to pay crane fees. It would also be unfair to exempt the
owners of vessels not requiring relocation from their present
positions from also having to pay these fees.
Therefore, the Executive has determined that all vessel owners
normally requiring crane services will be required to pay crane
and mooring fees, regardless of whether or not they choose to
launch their vessels.
This was not an easy decision. It is in fact the best of two;
"less than ideal" courses of action.
Further, owners of vessels not normally requiring crane
services, and who choose not to launch their vessels, must
remove their vessels and / or trailers from the property, or pay
the equivalent sum of crane and mooring fees.
Consequently, vessel owners planning to forego the launch of
their vessels this summer, should understand that this will not
result in any financial savings.
It is understood that this will not be a popular decision, but
it is the only way in which to conduct the operation of the Club
in the most fair, and impartial manner, under the present
The good news is that we will soon be opening the two lower
washrooms in preparation for Launch. A notice will be posted
outlining the required procedures for their use, and appropriate
materials for safeguarding those using these facilities will be
Plans continue for the launching of our vessels and as is
customary, the Committee Boat will be made available proceeding
the Launch in order to assist those who have not been able to
install their mooring lines.
Further details regarding the Launch will be circulated as soon
as they have been completed.
In preparation, it is strongly suggested that all members with
computers, tablets, or smart phones become familiar with the
ZOOM conferencing platform as we are considering conducting a
Safety Briefing through this medium in the near future.

Greetings Fellow Sailors:
Subsequent to the recent relaxation of Provincial and local
restrictions, the Executive and I now believe that we can safely
proceed with the launching of our vessels. Crane services have
been booked for the morning of Friday, June 5th.
In keeping with the current level of restrictions and
recommendations, there will be a marked decrease in the number
of those participating in the disposition of vessels. Details in
this regard will be provided shortly.
All members should now complete the required preparations prior
to the Launch date.

As many of you may be aware, the Province has now provided for
the resumption of operations with regard to Boating Clubs. As
per the recent announcement, this will be possible as of 12:01
am, this Saturday, May 16th.
I know that we are all anxious to get at our boats and to
prepare them for the season. Both the Executive and have
appreciated your patience and cooperation during the past
Consequently, access to the Algoma Sailing Club will be
permitted as of this Saturday. However, this access will come
with several restrictions in order to comply with both
Provincial and Municipal requirements, and guidelines.
Access will be restricted to Members and their immediate
household (if a member, or anyone in their household is
exhibiting symptoms that may be associated with the Corona
Virus, they should remain at home, and not visit the Club). The
number of persons working on a vessel must not exceed 5 persons
(also to be members of the same household). Access to the
Clubhouse will be restricted to the retrieval of personal items
only. No access will be permitted to all washroom, or kitchen
facilities (if you have to go, go at home). Social
gatherings on the front deck will not be permitted.
Access to electrical power, and the outside water taps will be
made available shortly. Outside waste disposal facilities will
be available. The gate barrier will remain closed. Vehicles will
be permitted in the compound for the purpose of, loading and
unloading only. When loading or unloading is completed, vehicles
are to be parked outside of the compound, and the barrier is to
All groups must maintain Social Distancing, (between groups)
of "2 meters" at all times. Tools, food, and etc. should not be
shared between groups.
The total number of persons present on the property at any given
time must not exceed 50 persons (as per Provincial Order).
The use of personal protective equipment including gloves and
masks is highly recommended and encouraged.
Those wishing to launch their vessels from trailers, may do so.
Access to moorings and the dinghy docks are permitted. If you
decide to moor your vessel, please remove your trailer from the
grounds if possible.
Please ensure that all mooring lines are in a good state of
repair and that "2 Mooring Lines" are attached to each vessel.
Please be aware that a higher level of scrutiny may be
exercised by border officials. It is highly recommended that you
have all your documents in order in the event that your vessel
is boarded. A majority of our local river system is in U.S.
The Executive and I will continue to monitor the situation for
evidence that further adjustments may be required to these

Your Algoma Sailing Club executive virtually met this evening to
address Club matters. We still have not received direction from
Ontario Sailing as to the interpretation of the Ontario
Government's latest easement of restrictions (May 1, 2020). To
date, the Ontario Government has made mention of allowing
marinas to be able to "prepare for the season". So far, it has
not been satisfied that this means a facility such as ours can
allow the membership onto the grounds to work on their boats.
Your Commodore will be consulting with Ontario Sailing directly
on the matter in an effort to get a more concise picture.

In an effort to address the Club's 2020 expenses, invoices will
be forwarded to all Senior Members for this year's membership

Clubhouse Lounge Flooring Removal
On Sunday evening Jun 02, Scott St. Jules will start on
removal of the old carpet and prep the floor as necessary. We
have purchased new laminate flooring in vinyl planking 12 mm
thickness to cover the whole lounge and including the small
corridor leading to both bathrooms. Scott estimates that the job
will be completed by Tuesday Jun 04.
The funds for this well needed project will be adequately
contained within the contingency allowed for the 2019 budget
under Clubhouse Repairs.
Clubhouse Roof Re-Shingle
On Monday Jun 03, KC’s Roofing Contractor will start with
removal of existing shingles on both roof levels and replace
with new “Architectural Shingles” and improved attic
ventilation. This project, assuming decent weather conditions,
is expected to take 2 days.
We trust that some restriction from upstairs access of the
clubhouse, resulting from the above two described projects for
the early part of next week, is not too inconvenient. However,
as you can well appreciate, it is important to allow space for
work to proceed efficiently and in safety.
Wednesday evening Barbecue will not be affected.
