Ontario Sailing is pleased to announce that we have awarded $2750.00 towards grass root programs in the Province. The funding comes from the legacy of the Huntsville Sailing Club.
From the many applications that were received, the committee (made up of a member of the Board of Directors, a staff person and an outside independent judge), agreed that the following clubs, schools/camps will be supported with funding;
Sudbury Yacht Club $1000, Scarborough Bluffs Sailing Club $750, Outer Harbour Sailing Federation $500, Burlington Sailing and Boating Club $250 and Barrie Yacht Club $250.
We welcome anyone that would like to make a donation to the fund as the fund has now been exhausted. Our Executive Director has started the “$50 Challenge” by making the first donation of $50.00 towards this great funding program.
You can make an online donation for a tax receipt at https://www.netdirectories.com/~cya/olg1.cgi . Under Funding Options, please choose “Ontario Sailing Programs” from the dropdown menu and indicate “Hunstville Legacy Fund” in the Special Instructions.
We thank those other clubs and schools that applied to the fund. All the applications were of a very high caliber but we could only fund some of them.
Supporting the growth of this great sport is why we all are proud members of Ontario Sailing and Sail Canada.
