2015 Ontario Sailing Combine


September 17 & 18, 2015

Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, Kingston

Athletes interested in becoming members of the 2015/2016 Ontario Sailing Team and Ontario Sailing Development Team are invited to attend the annual Ontario Sailing Team COMBINE.

The COMBINE is a two-day camp that will give athletes an opportunity to showcase their sailing skills and fitness. This camp will provide an opportunity for the Ontario Sailing Team High Performance Coach, Ontario Sailing Development Coach and selected guest experts to perform talent identification and skill development exclusively for Ontario athletes.

Classes invited to this year’s COMBINE include: 29er, 49er, FX, 420, Laser, Radial, Techno 293, RSX and Optimist (limited to sailors planning on transitioning to a different class for the 2015 season).

The on-water portion of the COMBINE will include different drill stations that will allow athletes to demonstrate specific skills (e.g. tacking, gybing, starting, acceleration, hoists/douses, racing) to the coaching team.  Athletes will also participate in fitness testing which will be used as a benchmark for future Team camps.

At the end of the camp, the top performing boat in each class will be announced by the coaching staff and will automatically qualify for a position on the Ontario Sailing Team or Ontario Sailing Development Team.
