2020 Season Cancellation

After considerable soul-searching, the Junior Sailing Board has voted to cancel activities for summer 2020. We have made the decision at this time in order to provide students/parents with sufficient notice to plan alternate summer activities.

The extension of border closure, ongoing federal/provincial medical recommendations, and the need to maintain self-distancing while on a vessel have been contributory factors. Under the circumstances, conducting on-water classes would have compromised our ability to ensure student, instructor, and volunteer health and safety.

Our thanks go to past/future students and their (grand)parents for your continued support. We will miss our days on the beach and wish each of you and your families good health in these trying times.

“Stay Safe” – as we hope to welcome you back on Pender waters next year.
