| February 8: Judge Seminar at NSC

Upcoming Club Judge Seminar

What actually happens in the protest room? If I get involved in a protest, how can I present my side better? Why do we need judges at regattas anyway? What does a sailing judge actually do? How do I become a certified Sail Canada judge?

If you have any of these questions or have already decided you want to become a certified Club Judge, register for the full day Club Judge seminar at Nepean Sailing Club in Ottawa on February 8. The course will be taught by Greg Dargavel who is a National Judge and sails out of NSC but sailed out of Kingston in the past.

Also interested in the Race Officer side of race officiating? Stay tuned for a potential Club Race Officer course coming to NSC in March.

| February 19: Cruiser's Muster

The next Cruiser's Muster will be held on February 19th at 5pm.


| March 4: High Water Flood Talks

We had a flood two of the past three years and, some say, this year will be worse.
In line with that, KYC has joined with United Shorelines Ontario, a group interested in discussing solutions to the water level problem.
There's a gathering at McArthur College on Wednesday, March 4 at 6:00pm.
Plan to attend, listen and ask questions.


| March 18: Ramble On and Finnish Line talk

Chris and Linda (Ramble On) and Bob (Finnish Line 2.0) are giving a talk of their 2,950 nm voyage to the east coast this past summer at a club in Ottawa in February. After the off Broadway try out they will be presenting the same talk at our Club on Wednesday March 18th at 7pm. This is also a Cruiser Muster night.

| Featured Beer


American Pale Ale 5%

Countdown is Beau’s certified organic pale ale. We brew it with a classic west-coast hop combo of Cascade and Simcoe, creating a tasty, aromatic ale with a clean hoppy finish. Pale Ale is the iconic craft beer style that changed the beer scene forever in America. Enjoy it now here at home, brewed fresh at Beau’s year-round.

History and Style

The American pale ale is a modern beer style that has its roots firmly on the west coast of the US of A. It is a hop-driven style with many aroma and flavour variations, as it takes on the character of the chosen hop varieties. Countdown is brewed with certified organic cascade and simcoe hops.

Tasting Notes

Countdown Pale Ale pours sunset-gold with intentional slight haziness and a white foam. The hop aromas offers fruity citrus and berry. The initial rush of malt sweetness gives way to firm hops that sweep in and suggest another sip. This medium-bodied ale is well balanced. The finish is clean and mildly hoppy.
