Happy New Year 2020!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year 2020 fellow sailors, windsurfers, kayakers, and watersports enthusiasts of all horizons!

2020 is bound to be an exciting year for the UBC Sailing Club. We have lots of plans in the works that we can’t wait to share with you all.

After spending some time this fall to learn from last year’s mistakes, and after a well-deserved break for the holidays, the Steering Committee, in its new configuration, is back at work to prepare the upcoming season. 

From an exciting fleet renewal plan to organizing festivities to celebrate over 60 years of watersport fun with the UBCSC, we are putting together a full year of activities and projects to make this season memorable. 

Although we are committed to doing our very best for the club, I would like to remind everyone that we are a volunteer-run club. We pour hours every week outside of our studies and our jobs to make this club happen. But we also need your help to make it truly remarkable! This year you’ll find plenty of opportunities to get involved and get work hours from monthly work parties to social and sailing events. We are counting on you!

And as always, we love getting your feedback. Is there something you liked and want us to do more of? Did we drop the ball somewhere? We want to hear it all. Reach out to us at hello@ubcsailing.org, and we’ll do our best to learn from your feedback.

Happy New Year to you all!

– Pierre Beugnot and the Steering Committee
