The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The safety of club members, athletes, staff, and coaches in our Sailing community are of the utmost importance to Ontario Sailing. Please consider the advice from the Ministry of Health related to COVID-19 and the measures being taken to limit social contact.
We have cancelled our March Break Camp and to our knowledge, most World/North American and other major regattas have been cancelled or postponed in the USA and abroad (if you have registered for a regatta, we encourage encourage you to check with organizers). We urge you to take the advice of the Ministry of Health if you have been traveling and we highly recommend cancelling/postponing any travel plans.
Below are some links to several well written sensible approaches to helping to keep you, your staff, members and club as safe and healthy as possible.
