Summer is Coming!

BOOM is Coming!

Ontario Sailing is proud to announce the 2016 Host Sites for the BOOM Program.

This year’s iteration of the BOOM Program involves three mobile units and sets of instructors traveling to 16 different communities in Ontario through the months of July and August.

BOOM is a program that works with communities who have the passion to run a sailing program but do not have the equipment or personnel to run lessons on their own.

For the instructors it is a great opportunity to travel across Ontario during the summer, enjoy the great sport of sailing and let their leadership skills shine. For communities they visit, it’s a great chance to get great lessons by energetic young instructors.

Ontario Sailing is now accepting Instructor Applications for the BOOM Program. Apply as an individual or in a team of two with an fellow CANSail 1&2 or 3&4 Instructor.
