CANADA’S CELEBRATION OF SAILING, Royal Canadian Yacht Club Front Lawn, Toronto ON
September 2, 2021

This first such occasion marks the pinnacle event of the season for Sailing in Canada where our nation’s high-performance sailors of past, present, and future will gather with welcome guests to celebrate outstanding performances and experiences.

Set to take place late in the afternoon of September 2nd 2021 on the front lawn and grounds of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club (RCYC) on Toronto Island, highlights of this sunset reception include:

  • A welcoming home and introduction of the 2021 Canadian Olympic Sailing Team – Presented by Helly Hansen
  • Meet and greet with members of today’s National Sailing Team and Development Squad
  • Stories from the Helm – a captivating panel interview with 4 or 5 Canadian Performance Sailors
  • The awarding of Sail Canada’s Rolex Sailor of the Year

In the waterfront setting, guests will be treated with hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, refreshments and an amazing gift. The event and its activities will align to meet local and provincial health authority requirements in place at that time, as well as RCYC’s COVID policies. We have set plans to stream the event for Canadians to attend virtually.

While celebrating Canadian performance sailing, the event will serve to support it. Tax receipt will be issued with every ticket. Attendees – in person or virtual – are encouraged to show their spirit with a top up donation on each ticket.

Donations to Canada’s High Performance Program are welcome at any time. Simply click on Sail Canada’s Donation Page (click here).
