Meet the recipient of the Recreation Event of the Year -  la Fédération de Voile du Québec; Voile Mobile

February 27th, 2018 - Kingston, ON

It is with great pleasure that Sail Canada presents this year’s Recreation Event of the Year to the Fédération de Voile du Québec for their Voile Mobile program!

The Voile Mobile program promotes and teaches sailing and boating safety around the province . The goal of the program is to democratize sailing and introduce the sport to all corners of Quebec.

A trailer with half a dozen boats crossed the province and stopped in different regions, but also at public events, to promote the sport. This year it is several day camps and specialized in sailing that have been given to hundreds of young people as adults. More than 3500 km, and a dozen cities were covered by this adventure.
