What is the Annual Conference ?

→ It is several discussions and conferences about sailing cruising that are presented to you throughout the day;

→ It is the perfect opportunity to exchange with other sailing enthusiasts;

→ It is the opportunity to update your knowledge and certifications as a cruise instructor through the new smplified recertification process that comes into effect this year (see below for more information)





Registering for the Annual Conference is an investment in :

  • In its continuing education as well as in the comfort and safety of its passengers and other water users;
  • In the development of enriching programs such as Sailing to School and Mobile Sailing, etc...

Did you know? The annual convention allows the financing of the Federation's activities. Thanks to the Placements Sports program, you are invited to make a donation that will be used to finance our activities and services.

These donations are eligible for a tax receipt for you and a matching grant for Voile Québec. Until last year our matching grant was 230%. It is now 380%! A $50 donation becomes a $240 donation! This is an incredible opportunity to raise additional funds for Voile Québec's projects and activities. Even more so this year, your support is important because it is quadrupled by the Placements Sports grant.

Thank you for your support!
