Happy Holidays from the CORK team!  .

The CORK Board and Staff wish you all a safe and happy holiday season!

Athletes, coaches and parents, thank you for coming to CORK in 2018.  Over 800 boats, 1000+athletes, 300+ coaches, from 11 countries competed at CORK this past year. From the beginners in Opti green fleet to the elite competing in OCR you always impress us with your confidence and ability!  Hosting regattas for you was rewarding and fun for the entire CORK team.  We are excited to follow your sailing development in 2019!

The 2018 season would not be possible without the enthusiastic CORK volunteer team.  This year round team contributed over 15,000 volunteer hours in 2018! Exceptional!  All for the love of the sport!  A quote from one of the team members, ” a beautiful venue and a beautiful city. The volunteers are always top notch and it’s almost like a reunion every year with the volunteers.  Better than any family reunion, since we all love sailing.”

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you all to join us in 2019 as CORK celebrates its 50th!  The 2019 event schedule includes the Sail Canada Youth and Senior Championships! Two ILCA Youth World Championships! The full 2019 Event Schedule is at www.cork.org.  We look forward to seeing you all back in 2019!

Happy Holidays and warm wishes for 2019!

The Sail Canada Youth Championships is an annual event bringing together the country’s top competitive youth sailors. The purpose of the championship is to provide development opportunities for youth sailors through training & racing experiences, award the Youth National Champions, and train and develop officials.

The Sail Canada Youth Championships have most recently been at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club in Toronto, Ontario where over 114 boats competed.

The 2019 Sail Canada Youth Championships will be one of two qualifying events for the 2020 World Sailing Youth World Championships.

In conjunction with the 2019 Youth Championships Sail Canada will be hosting a Youth Olympic Training Seminar (YOTS) at POH from August 9 – 11. YOTS is a training opportunity for Canada’s top youth sailors involving on water sessions and group debriefs with guest coaches and experts.

Celebrate CORKs 50th in 2019! CORK and The City of Kingston are excited to welcome athletes, coaches, and volunteers from across the country and around the world! Annual training and regattas take place each year in August and September. Canada’s largest annual sailing regatta continues to attract world class events, 43 World Championships to date to Portsmouth Olympic Harbour in addition to national and continental class championships.

 

At the end of a fun week of competition and camaraderie, on and off the water, each class will award the 2019 Sail Canada Youth National Champ!
