SAIL CANADA KITEBOARDING PROGRAM
With the recent inclusion of kitefoiling to the Olympic games, Sail Canada is proud to announce the Kite foiling program. The program will be focussed on domestic training camps and events for this year with further additions and enhancements leading up to the 2024 Games. Sail Canada also recognizes our provincial partners, Ontario Sailing, BC Sailing and Fédération de voile du Québec as well as the dedicated volunteers who have worked tirelessly to produce the schedule.
The program will be led in 2021 by Dan Cunningham. Dan is a previous Canadian Sailing Team member, and has an extensive background in foiling and coaching. We welcome Dan to the team and look forward to him leading the foilers to performance success.
It is Sail Canada’s goal to have the best kitefoilers in Canada come to train together with the goals of performance at the 2021 Senior and Youth World Championships and beyond.
There will be a maximum of 6 athletes per coach at the camps. Acceptance for entry to these training camps will be decided based on the following items:
- Proven performance in kites or other Olympic classes
- Commitment to training
- Long term potential
- Equal men/women split (except for Women’s clinic)
- Ability to commit to all camps and World Championships
- Ability to consistently foil around a windward leeward race course
To apply for these camps, please fill in the online registration form found in the table below. Successful applicants will be informed within one week of the posted deadline.
