National One Design Sailing Academy to Bring Together Clubs from Around Ontario in Exciting Event

1D Sailing


National One Design Sailing Academy is pleased to announce the first annual “1D Sailing Cup” to be held the weekend of September 26 & 27, 2015.  The event is open to any Sail Canada member club in Ontario and is designed to bring Sailing Clubs from Ontario together to compete for top honours and the 1D Sailing perpetual trophy.

The competition will be held aboard a fleet of 10 Flying Tiger 7.5m sport boats provided by 1D Sailing, which sets an exciting stage with asymmetric spinnakers and modern design.  Crews of 5 will be tested as they handle these boats around the race course.

The event is to be hosted in Oakville on the waters off Bronte Harbour Village, bringing sailors from across Ontario to this great sailing venue.

1D Sailing recognizes the importance of encouraging youth sailing to help grow the sport of sailing.  As part of the sailing instructions for this event, each crew must have a youth sailor under the age of 18 on board.  Top prize for the event will be a donation from 1D to the winning clubs junior sail program.

Marketing Director for 1D Sailing and two-time Olympian Greg Douglas stated “This is going to be an exciting event where sailing clubs will be able to face off against each other in a competitive and fun environment.  We are excited for crews to get out in our Flying Tiger 7.5m’s and push them to the limit against each other.”
