2018 Canadians in beautiful Squamish BC!

Dates are August 17-23. We will have a clinic from the 13-16th as well, for those interested. We will post more details as they come available from the organizers. 

There is plenty to do in Squamish, while the kids race - it is considered the outdoor capital of Canada. Whistler is a short drive as is Vancouver.

International sailors are more than welcome! We will have charters. Again, details to come.

For those on our Facebook page, you have seen the winter schedules released by both RCYC and RNSYS. All opti sailors are welcome to contact Coach Flor or Coach Oz to discuss what would be worth attending this winter! Year round sailing is one of the best paths to your continued development. Those CODA sailors attending IODA events are especially encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities. Coach Fede from BQYC will be down in Uruguay for the SUD test event in Dec '17 and potentially the Argentina Nationals, please contact him for details if interested in attending.
