Volunteer registration is open!

“I have been volunteering at CORK for years, it is the high point of my summer.”

Since 1969 CORK / Sail Kingston has hosted world-class international sailing events.  Offering the best fresh-water sailing in the world with excellent wind and wave conditions, Kingston was the host sailing venue for the 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics.  This summer over 1000 boats and 1500+ competitors from around the world will participate in a series of 2-5 day regattas (July through September).  Volunteering at CORK is fun and a great way to support the sport about which we are passionate!

Volunteer opportunities exist year-round, inside and outside, on the water and ashore, including:

On-Water

Ashore

2018 Sailors for the Sea Clean Regattas Challenge

2018 Clean Regattas Challenge

CORK, “Kingston’s Freshwater Sailing Festival” is reaching for Gold in 2018!  This will be CORK’s second year taking part in the Sailors for the Sea Clean Regattas challenge. This certification system promotes the protection of local waters by using selected Best Practices and then awarding Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum based on performance.

This summer CORK will be stepping up our recycling program by introducing OSKAR (On Site Kingston Area Recycler).  This unique City of Kingston mobile recycling system is used to collect recyclables and organics. OSKAR will be used in the boat park during CORK International, the largest event of the summer.  Just think of how many organics can be collected with hundreds athletes, coaches and volunteers on site!  We look forward to encouraging all participants to get in the habit and use OSKAR in its inaugural year!

CORK participants will again be encouraged to bring reusable water bottles to all training and regattas.  The ever popular Utilities Kingston Water Buggy will be onsite for all regattas this year.  This mobile water refilling station is always a well used feature in our athlete village.  Our ultimate goal is to eliminate single use water bottles.

Finally, alternative and active transportation to events made easy!   Kingston Transit Event Passes are available to all CORK participants and will be offered at a special event rate, providing a convenient and reliable way to get back and forth to Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, downtown Kingston and various accommodations throughout the city.

We are certain that our 2018 Clean Regatta’s goal will be met with the support of our community, including all CORK participants, The City of Kingston, Kingston Transit and Utilities Kingston.

Everyone up for the challenge?  Let’s achieve gold!
