Quebec Sailing Federation Races to Get Kids Sailing

Get Kids Sailing

We will race again in order to Get kids sailing. Will you join us?

Because we came so close to win the contest last year, we decided to try again with the Sailing at school and the Mobile sailing school projects.

Both of these projects aim to introduce sailing, develop many abilities, and make sailing an accessible sport for our youth.

To win, we need you: vote daily, share to your networks, invite your members to do the same, etc. To learn  more about the projects, go to our idea’s page. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!

From October 6th to October 23rd we vote, thousands of kids are counting on you!

•         by finishing in the top 5/20 of our category, we are guaranteed to receive $16,500 ($5,000 – Aviva; $11,500 – Placements Sports) and we could get up to $130,000 depending of the Jury’s ranking;
•         there will only be one round of vote this year to get to the Final. No more 3 rounds of votes plus a semi-finale!

Please advise us should you want to be added to or removed from the list of recipient of the friendly daily reminder.
In order to be able to vote, you need to register with Aviva
