CBC Podcast Summary for Girls in Sailing

November 30, 2022

Recently, the CBC podcast Sports Talk with John Hancock, interviewed Olympian hopeful Clara Gravely and Vice Commodore Marjolyn van der Hart, about the inaugural Girl’s Sailing Camp held this past summer at Ashbridge’s Bay Yacht Club in Toronto.

This camp, funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, is an initiative to address the high attrition of girls in sailing.

This podcast gives a great overview of the approach that ABYC is taking to create a supportive, encouraging environment for girls to thrive.
