It’s Summer!

Happy summer solstice everyone! School is out (or almost out) and the lake is about to get a lot busier. In the spirit of being a good lake neighbour, we have put together some ‘lake etiquette’ tips:

  • avoid driving too close to people’s docks
  • drive slowly when close to shore
  • avoid activities (e.g. tubing and surfing) that churn up the calm morning water until after 10 am
  • drive in straight lines when waterskiing

A link to the full document is here. A while back, we also put together tips on boat driving that can be found here. Finally, we want to be more proactive about fixing the ski courses or docks – if you notice any issues with either please email

July 2-3 Clinic: The first weekend clinic is SOLD OUT! If you missed your chance to sign up or want to more chances to improve your techniques, there will be a second clinic coming up Aug 6-7. We are lucky enough to have BC Junior team members, Christopher and Jonathan Horwood, who won gold and silver at the 2021 Canadian Nationals, coming to Sakinaw Lake. Stay tuned for more information and details on how to sign up for this clinic in the next few weeks.

July 2 SUMMER SOCIAL: We are having our first summer social since 2018! Meet up with folks around the lake and start the summer off right. This will be held at the McGurk cabin in Square Bay (with the yellow umbrellas) on Sat, Jul 2. Festivities will begin at 2 pm. Please bring an appy with you and we will provide drinks, hamburgers, and hotdogs. We are looking for volunteers to grill and are also need an additional BBQ – if you can help with either please email us at
