Canadians will be invited to discover the joy of sailing or to enjoy their favourite sport this summer, particularly over the weekend of July 31st and August 1st as Sail Canada, in collaboration with the Provincial Associations, sailing clubs and schools across the country, will stage various initiation activities during the 2021 #GoSailing days.

The events will be held in accordance with the public health and social measures that are in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizations who are looking to take part in these #GoSailing days can record the activities they are planning on July 31 and August 1 at sailing.ca/gosailing. They have until July 20 to do so. Over the next few months, clubs and schools will also have access to promotional tools that are designed to introduce sailing to Canadians, especially in the context of the competitions that will be held at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

On July 31st and August 1st, Canadians looking to get acquainted with sailing in the company of their family members will find all the details on the programming offered by participating clubs and schools on Sail Canada's website.
