Montreal, February 19, 2018 - It is with great pride that the Quebec Sailing Federation announces that it’s a recipient of the merit of Recreational event of the year given by Sail Canada for the Mobile Sailing program. This merit pays tribute an organization or person who contributed to the promotion of recreational sailing in Canada!

Our goal is to democratize sailing and to enable people to discover the sport of sailing all over Quebec, from this idea was born the Mobile Sailing program. In the summer of 2016, the Mobile Sailing program was launched thanks to the generosity of our donators and sponsors. And since two seasons, Mobile Sailing is:

  • Thousands of people joined by the program
  • Hundreds of initiation to sailing done for young and older
  • More than 10 regions visited
  • An unparalleled media presence
  • More than 7000 km traveled
  • A colorful trailer that catches the eye
  • An excellent program for promotion and democratization of sailing

For its second year of activities, the Mobile Sailing program has attracted and become a must, even more today by receiving this award from the national authority.
