The excitement kicks off at the Youth Championships Opening Ceremony at Confederation Park in downtown Kingston at 7:00pm, Sunday August 14. The ceremony will include a march of sailors and coaches by province, while all international sailors and coaches will march together. Both regattas will also include various activities outside of the racing; including volunteer socials, morning yoga, and special events in downtown Kingston.
CORK has been hosting world-class regattas in Kingston since 1969. The Sail Canada Championships will be no exception, and have always been a summer favourite for sailing athletes. Other recent highlights include the 2013 Laser North American Championships, the 2014 29er North American Championships, and the 2015 Laser World Championships.
