    For the safety of our members, a temporary grounding of the Vanguard fleet is in effect. Due to general material degradation, a cockpit hose failure was recently detected. Please do not take out Vanguards until further notice, after the hulls have been verified as safe. Thanks!

    EDIT: V24, 25, 26, 28 are approved for use, as of Aug 18, 2021. Please ensure you do a pre-trip check to make sure your hull is sea-worthy and inspect the cockpit hoses from time to time.

    WORK HOURS

    Mentorship Program

    If you are certified and experienced on a craft, mentorship is a great way to help novice members and earn work hours towards your refundable deposit. Attend our social events or browse our forum to find mentees.

    DIY

    If you notice something around the club that needs cleaning or fixing, feel free to chip in! Be sure to email the appropriate fleet captain first if you are unsure how to go about the repair. The goal of work hours are to maintain the club and keep costs low - every bit helps! Be sure to log your hours by submitting a completed form

    OH SHEET! QR Codes

    See something broken that you are unable to fix? Scan the QR codes located in the fix-it, club, and HP rooms to report on our fleet's condition.

    #TBT: Tool Box Thursdays

    Regular drop-in get-togethers will be taking place on Thursdays at Jericho. These are community events aimed at learning repairs from those with experience, earning work hours by fixing equipment, and making new friends! There may even be time for some sailing afterwards...Stay tuned for exact times on our mediainstagram, and Facebook pages. Email monohull@ubcsailing.org to participate. 

    Prevention is the Best Cure

    Please follow the proper care and storage protocol for our equipment to avoid damage and having to repair it. For example, the newly repaired auto-bailers in the lasers. Be a good sailor and close the bailer! (black plug at the back of the cockpit when launching and landing to avoid them snapping off).
