2021 Race Season - Start Up 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.

2021 ASC Launch & Cradle Party 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.

 

Spring Launch 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 Clark.

 

Spring Launch 2021- Delayed 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

Delayed Launch

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 House.

 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

Newsletter: ASC Haul-Out 2020. Sept 15, 2020

Anyone noticed that the geese are practicing flight formations, mornings are getting nippy, nights are drawing in and leaves are on the turn to just a hint of red and orange?

Yup, sorry to mention it, but its time for Skippers to think about Haul-Out!

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 of Friday October 09 2020.

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 intentions for;
• 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])
• Those that will be bringing boats on trailers back into ASC grounds for winter storage after the crane haul-out operations are completed

Newsletter: Commodore's Comments. July 29, 2020

Club Racing:

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.

Work Hours:

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

Races: Spring Series and Race Barbeques. June 5, 2020

Dear Members,

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.

(Traditionally 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 your boat.

Regards, ASC Fleet Captain, Neil.

2020 Crane Launch. June 5, 2020


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.

Newsletter: Online Pre-Launch Safety Meeting.

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 also just click on the link and it will route you to the meeting as well.

For those of you who have not completed the installation of your mooring lines by the end of today, the Committee Boat will be made available to assist after 3:30 PM Thursday afternoon, and following the Safety Meeting.

You will require a Computer, Tablet or Smart Phone in order to participate. Those not having access to these devices could alternatively arrange to call a participant by phone and have them put them on speaker phone. Direct-Dial-In is currently not supported.

Soon we will be Sailing,

Regards, Alan McLean, Commodore.

Newsletter: Launch is Three Sleeps Away & Mooring Lines.

June 3, 2020

Launch is scheduled for this coming Friday morning - June 5th, 2020. There will be a safety meeting via Zoom on Thursday evening at 5 pm - details and link to follow.

Is Your Personal Piece of Bliss Ready?

Hopefully you're on your final bit of washing, waxing, and maybe bottom painting. If you are completely done and looking for something to do, I am sure there are a few that could use some help! Please make sure your engine is ready and fenders set on the starboard side of your yacht.

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 along.

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.

Mooring Lines

A big reminder to make sure your mooring lines are ready. If you need assistance here, there will be several members doing theirs on Thursday evening after the safety meeting.

Newsletter: 2020 Staying Safe & Healthy, Crane Launch.

May 31, 2020

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 as we are considering conducting a Safety Briefing through this medium in the near future.

Regards, Alan McLean, Commodore

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 Membership.

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 instances.

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 circumstances.

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 made available.

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.

Regards, Alan McLean, Commodore

Newsletter: 2020 Crane Launch, Friday June 5.

May 23, 2020
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.

Please use the link provided in the club email sent out to all members, to complete your membership applications for 2020:

With luck, all will go smoothly as planned, and we can finally "ALL" be SAILING.

Regards, Alan McLean, Commodore.
 

Newsletter: Start of Resuming Operations, COVID-19.

May 15, 2020
Greetings Fellow Sailors;

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 restrictions.

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 be restored.

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. waters.

The Executive and I will continue to monitor the situation for evidence that further adjustments may be required to these policies.

(Some of us get to go sailing.)

Best Regards, Alan McLean, Commodore
 

Newsletter: May 4 Update, COVID-19

May 5, 2020
May 4, 2020 Status

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.

2020 Membership Fees

In an effort to address the Club's 2020 expenses, invoices will be forwarded to all Senior Members for this year's membership fees. At this time, the invoices will only address the $350.00 annual fee and not any other costs at this time. Your executive will continue to meet and discuss financial direction as the situation evolves. As noted, Senior Members will be forwarded invoices.

We appreciate your patience on the matter. First and foremost, we need to consider the overall health implications - this needs to take precedence.

North Channel Race Week Canceled, COVID-19

April 30, 2020

Unfortunately Sailors:

The North Channel Race Week Organizing Committee has taken the decision to cancel this year's race series due to the pandemic and the uncertainty about; opening, launching, and traveling. Fair winds to you all and let's think positive thoughts about perhaps salvaging some part of the sailing season. Check back for further updates. Be Safe.

Newsletter: A New Season 2020, COVID-19

April 8, 2020

Greetings Fellow Sailors:

It should come as no surprise that this year; things are not going to go as planned. The latest order put out by the Ontario Government has forbidden the operation of all recreational club activities, both public and private until further notice.

At this time the Club facilities will remain closed and access to the Clubhouse is prohibited (signs have been posted in this regard.). Access to the grounds will be restricted to security access, and the retrieval of essential items. Club members may not engage in the repair, prepping or outfitting of vessels.

Additional security cameras have been installed at the Clubhouse with remote monitoring and recording on designated executive members computers and phones.

Please be aware that both Provincial, and Municipal officers will be on the lookout for violators of the Provincial Order, and that the penalties are severe. It is recommended that if you don't absolutely need to visit the site, that you stay away and avoid drawing their attention.

At this time, the launch date of May 8th has not been cancelled. The Executive will continue to monitor the situation and will address this matter before the end of this month. If the situation does not change, a postponement is most likely.

In light of this situation, the Executive has also voted to suspend the requirement for the completion of work hours by members.

Secretary's News - Club Renovations

Jun 5, 2019

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.

ASC on Facebook and Facebook on ASC website.

 

To help promote our club more, a facebook project was stated last year and the site has been slowly gaining popularity. By using your phone you can post sailing photos or comments on it. This project is being overseen by Garry and Jack who will approve or grant you posting permissions.

Additionally the ASC Facebook page is now included (linked) on the right side of the Algoma Sailing Club's website home page. Allowing those who don't have Facebook accounts, to view the same info.

Donations Of Sailing Books, ASC-Library

 

The Algoma Sailing Club would like to say "Thank You" to the folks who have been  donating or recycling their old or unused Sailing Books and Magazines.

This has greatly expanded our library collection in the upstairs meeting room at our club house. They sure do wet our appetite even more to get out and sail (especially when waiting out old man winter). They are a great resource tool for sailors of all ages and soon a job for the Job Jar will be building a bookcase under the trophy case.

For more sailing info. check out our Sailing Books and Videos webpage.
