Cork and Ontario Sailing provides racing and learning opportunities for all participants with daily debrief sessions, including the Maclaren Debrief on Wednesday August 15th, featuring Canadian Olympic Team Sailor David Wright. David will meet with the junior sailors to discuss their day on the water as well as share his personal story, having sailed in this very regatta as a teenager.
