Support Cultus Lake Sailing Club
Sailing has been part of Cultus Lake life for over 100 years. It is an environmentally -friendly sport, with participants of all ages.
The Cultus Lake Sailing Club is a non-profit society, operated by unpaid volunteers. It operates under the oversight of provincial, national and international Sailing bodies. The Club provides "Learn to Sail" programs , offers a sailboat co-op to members, and hosts recreational and competitive Sailing events.
The Club pays the Park Board to occupy a spot on the Sunneyside campgrounds and for a storage shed. Until this year, the combined costs were set at an reasonable level, and increased about 2 % per year. On average, after paying the yearly costs, the Club broke even.
This year, the Park Board proposed a 550 % increase. This will make it impossible for the Club to continue operating. Additionally, with 6 weeks' notice, the Park Board told the Club to vacate the Park by August 22nd.
