The CORK International Optimist Regatta will kick off the summer as over 120 optimist sailors aged 7-15 will travel to Kingston August 11-14. This is a great event for young sailors to break into the racing scene, as the event is split between a race division and a green (beginners) division.

Meanwhile 30 board competitors will compete in the CORK International Board Regatta. Set to compete are the Techno 293, RSX Board and RS:X in the Sail Canada Youth and Senior Championships. This event will also be the RSX and Techno 293 North American Championships.

Without skipping a beat, CORK’s Olympic Classes Regatta will host the Sail Canada Senior Championships with over 120 Laser, Radial, 49er, 49erFX, I14, and Finn sailors from Aug 19-24. The Laser male and Radial female fleet events will be part of the World Sailing World Cup, and the Laser and Radial Open classes will be a North American Grand Prix Event. The I14 fleet will be competing for the Canadian Champion Title while The Finn fleet will be competing for the Eastern Championship Title. For the Laser, Radial, 49er, 49erFX & Finn fleets this event is the Sail Canada Senior Championships presented by Volvo, with 4 days of racing.

Wrapping up the summer will be the J/22 World Championship running from Aug 19-25 with 40 boats scheduled to compete.  This keelboat event will be a great one to watch as competitors strive to be named the best in the world.
