Ontario SailingEveryone is invited to join Ontario Sailing to celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday and the sport of Sailing at the 15th Annual Celebration of Sailing Fundraiser on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at the Lakeshore Yacht Club.

As many will attest, this is an evening that should not be missed! All proceeds go towards the development of sailing in Ontario. It’s a great way to meet up with other sailors as the 2017 sailing season starts to slow and to support a good cause all at the same time.
Come out and enjoy an evening of great food and entertainment! Enjoy a fabulous meal, bid on some great silent and live auction items, help celebrate the accomplishments of our award winners and enjoy the many festivities of the night. We’re not going to reveal all the surprises we have in store but we look forward to sharing them with you.
