"Who wants to go sailing?"
This was the first question we started asking mid-2017 when we started thinking about and planning for our 60th anniversary (1959-2019).
We were told again and again that many people want to go sailing.
So... we designed programs for those who said they wanted to experience sailing.
The first partnership was with Scouts Canada and Girl Guides of Canada. 577 kids registered for the pilot program in 2018.
Next was a free learn to sail program for Active Military and Veterans, the Warrior Sailing Basic Training Camp. Registration was double the capacity of the first camp.
We established partnerships to better connect us with the community:
The Imagine Sailing Campaign
We're building a fleet of boats to fulfill the programming goals and help the community go sailing.
The "420 sailboat" is one of the most versatile training and program boats in North America for hundreds of post-secondary sailing programs, sailing schools and sailing clubs of all sizes.
So... Who wants to go sailing?
Lots of people do.
We are here to help you experience sailing and welcome you to the sailing community.
