We are very grateful for the government funding and corporate sponsorships we receive which make so many of our programs possible but that funding alone is not enough. Therefore, we look outward to gain additional funding.

2. Pledge to the Coach Support Challenge
As a commitment to our athletes coming out of club programs, Ontario Sailing has made the substantial commitment of hiring a Development Coach as well as two contracted coaches to work with targeted youth athletes.
In order to fund these initiatives and to push our athletes’ performance to the next level, Ontario Sailing announced our commitment to reach a fund raising goal of $400,000 over the next 4 years. You can help reach this goal by pledging $100/year for the next four years or making a one time donation of $400.
