Ontario Sailing had a great open meeting with some of Ontario’s Kite Community on Thursday, June 10, 2021. We were joined by Mike Milner, the High Performance Director of Sail Canada.

As a group, we felt that we should open up a survey to ask if there is enough interest in forming a Work Group to support Kites.

Ontario Sailing will open our Maple Leaf Kite Group for those interested in supporting, also giving them the right to race in any Sail Canada/Ontario Sailing sanctioned events.

As kites are now in the next Olympic Games, we want to make sure our Province is establishing a good representation on the National Team.

This is not just about competition. It is also about supporting the Grass Roots, the water access, the setting of a Code of Conduct for Kiters and working on cross-recognition of Instructor Certification.

Please CLICK HERE to fill in the short survey in order to help us better understand the interest. Deadline for submissions is Thursday, July 8, 2021 at noon.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts on how Ontario Sailing can support the Kite community!

Regards,

Glenn Lethbridge

Executive Director, Ontario Sailing
