What is the Family Try It Day?
Ontario Sailing’s Family Try It Day makes dinghy sailing accessible to your community by bringing our mobile sailing school to YOUR club. You provide the site and participants, we provide the sailboats, coach boats and instructors. This program is for participants ages 8 and up and uniquely allows children and parents to participate together.
What are the benefits to your club?
By hosting this program, you are increasing awareness of the sport in your community and exposing potential members to sailing before the true season begins. Get all ages of participants involved and let us run the event for you.
