Season Closed Sept 15th 2016

September 13, 2016


Another great season has come and gone for the Squamish Windsports Society at The Spit. The SWS staff and directors would like to thank all of our members for helping to make this unique spot an amazing experience for all who visit!


A reminder to members and users:  according to our sublicense with the District of Squamish, SWS operations will be officially over for the season on September 15. SWS Staff may be at the Spit after that date to conduct cleanup of the grounds, but there will be no retrievals after September 15. SWS strongly discourages the use of the Spit for wind sports outside of the season which is from May 15 to September 15. The SWS directors are always working towards extending our season but unfortunately it is still not possible as this time.

If you choose to sail at the spit after September 15 please stay out of the Wildlife Management Area, off of the shipping port and pack out all garbage as usual (and maybe pick-up garbage that others mistakenly left behind!)


We would like to roll up the carpets on the weekend of September 24th, Sat or Sun to be determined. It is crucial to have a minimum of 15 people for this event but 30+ is best. Please email or message SWS on Facebook if you can spare a few hours to help. Please specify which of the two days works best and the earliest time you can arrive at The Spit.

Did we mention there will be a BBQ and drinks?


For members with a SWS check-in keytag from 2016, please keep it safe for reuse in 2017.

Fair winds, see you next season on May 15th 2017!
