Sailing Friends

When we speak of sailing buddies we tend to think of the kids at the Club.
SLSC 1956

We tend to forget that Sturgeon Pointers continue to sail long after their Club days have passed.  It is for these sailors that the Laser Fleet has existed for so many years and for these sailors that the Sunday Afts and Regattas continue.  We are hoping that the hugely successful Canadian Masters Laser Regatta, that was hosted here at Sturgeon Point in 2010 - and for which we won CYA Regatta of the Year - will be back again this summer.  Watch the SLSC website for details and come and volunteer.

Some of our other sailors were...

Hopkins boat - sailor not identifiable from this angle

Race Day Sturgeon Point - Fred Hopkins' boat in lower left

Ger Steward in Egoshaker - Sunday Afts, 1970s

Bill Brown & Fred Hopkins
