SinC Go Sailing Week 400An opportunity to introduce more Canadians to the sport of sailing

Clubs, schools and other organizations involved in sailing across Canada will again be invited to take part in the 2022 #GoSailing Week, which will be held June 20-26.

Led by Sail Canada, this initiative, which will be held for the second time, will aim to introduce more Canadians, especially new families, to the sport of sailing over that special week and involve them in different activities to be held in partnership with the Provincial Sailing Associations as well as clubs and schools from across the country. The events will be held in accordance with the public health and social measures that are in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Activities such as a short introduction to sailing followed by a short session of cruising time on the water, visiting a boat, enabling unprivileged kids to try sailing, a nightly parade of illuminated boats — all ideas are welcome to introduce new participants to such family activities, in addition to initiatives such as eSailing, normal or radio-controlled races, posting photos supported by hashtags that promote participation, as well as challenges among club members.

The European portion of SailGP Season 4 got underway this weekend in Saint-Tropez, France. Having hit record breaking speeds last year on the Côte d’Azur, Phil Robertson and the Canadians were looking forward to this weekend of racing, but things did not turn out as hoped. A penalty in the pre-start of race one was a precursor of what was to come, and it proved difficult for the team to recover.

A collision with Spain early on in race one set the team back and translated into eight penalty points for the event and an additional four penalty points for the season.
