It's been a busy week at Westwood!
Monday and Wednesday nights saw the finale for our first batch of new sailors. Congratulations to everyone on the May CANSail2 class - now's the time to take a look back to realize how far you've come in such little time. The next step is to sail as much as you can this summer - Thursday Social Sail & Dinner is ideal, and the more adventurous will want to look at joining in on the racing action.
Tuesday night was another successful Toronto Sport & Social Club night. We had a very breezy night, leading to a real Urban Adventure for our guests, many of whom joined their hosts for an impromptu swim. Lots of smiles, and even dinner on the deck. At least one new member the very next day. These events require significant club participation - at the risk of missing someone, kudos to: Brock, Gary, Gigi, Jason, Julia, Julie, Jen, Lyle, Martin, Maxim, Norah, Patrina, Ron, Stavros, Tai & Terry!
Thursday Social Sail & Dinner -- a somewhat subdued turn-out, but those who came got in a good sail. Lots of food for everyone!
Friday Night Racing was cancelled. While Union Station was sinking, we were bailing out the crash boat and tying off the docks as they started to drift heavily toward J-Town. We lost one of the anchor connections on the west dock, which needs to be addressed before the next big storm.
The CANSAil3 class was out in full force on Saturday. A hearty group of sailors, who have also mastered the post-class dinner! Those who aren't racing yet are encouraged to join the fun now that their course is finished.
And the week finished with a new group of CANSail2 students starting on Sunday. The schedule was revised due to concerns about the weather. While winds were not as high as expected, they were still brisk. Another club had boats on the water - and it looked like many students in the water.
So that was our week at Westwood. Please check upcoming events to see what's in store this week. Among other things, our Monday/Wednesday CANSail2 class begins this week, and Old Salts will be joining the CANSail2 classes on Wednesday and Sunday.
