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.
