JUNIOR SAIL AWARDS, BANQUET AND FUNDRAISER 2022

 

JOIN US ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 26 FROM 5 PM

The evening will kick off with Junior Sail Program Awards given to the best sailors this season from the youngest participants to the experienced sailors who represent EYC at major regattas on the lake from Sarnia to Kingston.

It’s an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the JSP youth and our alumni who now represent EYC in keel boat races around the lake. Most notably JSP alumni won this year’s Susan Hood Regatta and took part in the Ontario 300 regatta.

JSP is also supporting disadvantaged youth with bursaries and this year a number of newly arrived children from Ukraine have been sponsored to participate in the program. A Big Thank You to EYC and MIMICO members who donated funds to support the JSP bursary program.

In an effort to support the Junior Sail Program and development of new sailing enthusiasts and racers, EYC is hosting it’s annual fundraiser on Friday, August 26th ,2022. All funds raised at the event are used to repair damaged equipment or to purchase equipment for the next season.
