Starting now, Sail Canada is looking to receive nominations from the Canadian Sailing community to recognize outstanding sailors, athletes, coaches, instructors, officials, volunteers and events through one of Sail Canada’s 12 Annual Award categories, based on activities and performances that occurred from January 1 to December 31, 2022.

For the first time, and following the sharing of the Sail Canada Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Action Plan, all Sail Canada awards will be inclusive to all applicants, including the newly named Gallagher Skippers’ Plan Athletes/Teams of the Year and the Bill Burk Memorial Youth Elite Awards. For both, two awards will be given annually, and they will be awarded to athletes/teams of different genders identities.

Nomination forms for each of the awards are available online at https://www.sailing.ca/annual-national-awards/. Once they have been filled out, they can be sent no later than February 11, 2023, to Sail Canada’s National Office at communications@sailing.ca.  The recipients of these awards will be honoured virtually in the spring.
