From Head Rat Norm Lamb

AGM and Board Positions:

"The AGM is Nov 21st at 2pm to 4pm. Please register.

We do need a quorum to hold this meeting, so our participation is important.    

This will be a Zoom meeting and the connection information will be sent to you closer to Nov 21st along with the pertinent material. 

We encourage everyone to take a leadership role in the operation of the club. New faces and ideas are always welcome. If you are at all interested in helping, please reach out to us. As the phrase goes “Many hands make light work”. 

The following list is of those directors who will be transitioning out. If there is a name beside a current director’s name it is the name of a member willing to step up and take on that position. This candidate will need to be voted in at the AGM.   

Please note, this list may grow as not all directors have determined if they are going to stay or transition out.   

If the list does grow, I will let you know. If you are willing to fill a vacancy or contest any of the candidates below please let me know.

Volunteer Hours:

Covid has made the pursuit of volunteer hours that much more interesting this year and last.  In an effort to remind you that we do need volunteers to run this club we are asking the following of you.   Please go to the website and fill in the Volunteer Hour Sheet for 2021.   If you did not do Volunteer Hours due to covid, that is okay.  We understand.  This exercise is not meant to be punitive but to get an idea of the number of volunteer hours that were done this year.  

Volunteers Needed: 

Barb is looking for volunteers on Oct 16th and 17th (Saturday and Sunday) to assist with moving Hanlan’s  back to Hanlan. If you can assist either of those two days, please contact Barb directly. Barb's email


A film company will be using TMCC (last club at the end of Regatta Rd) on October 12th and 13th (Tuesday and Wednesday of next week).   The film company will be occupying much of Regatta Rd.   There may be a delay to access the club if they are shooting a scene.   Parking should not be impacted as we have parking inside our club.  As well, during those two days they may restrict access going around the spit.  I would suggest launching from the west ramp on those days.   Please note the film company is paying a ‘users’ fee to TMCC along with a fee to the other clubs of the OHSF, so there is a benefit for our inconvenience for those two days.   See the attachment below for more details. 

Clean Up Day:

No Fall Clean Up Day.  We hope to return to them in 2021, covid permitting

Holiday / Christmas Party:

There will be no Holiday/Christmas party this year. Extra restrictions and policing around indoor gatherings due to covid is the key reason. We hope to have one next season. There was a suggestion made to hold the party in January as it is easier to find a facility and easier to find spaces on people’s calendars. 

WRSC Vaccination Policy:

The board last night debated and approved a Vaccination Policy for our location at 4 Regatta.  Effective immediately, only persons with double vaccinations or medical exemptions will be able to use the facilities.  When using the clubhouse masks must be worn too.  All regattas will require participants to be masked or practice social distancing when on land.   I am in the process of putting the final touches on the policy itself and will circulate it when complete.   As it is the end of the sailing season, this should not impact us significantly but will come into play in 2022.   Stay tuned for further details. 

Restricted Area – No Sailing:

A friendly reminder, not to sail within the mooring area of the TMCC boats.  That area of the harbour (east end) is out of bounds as it is difficult to navigate and quite easy to hit one of their boats or a mooring line.
