Sail Canada is pleased to announce the Volvo Cars Volunteer of the Month for June 2015.

Annie Mitchell of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club in Toronto, Ontario, has been named June volunteer of the month.

Fellow RCYC members tout their luck in having Annie as a tireless member of their team – always providing an encouraging atmosphere to all, keeping the sailors and officials excited.
