  • Mobile Sailing

2017 was one of the best years for the Quebec Sailing Federation, especially with the Mobile Sailing program which has allowed more than a hundred children and adults to be introduced to sailing. The program has reached out to thousands of people through a dozen visited cities in 6 different regions of Quebec. The development of a Sailing School in Valleyfield and the creation of a Sailing Club in Thetford Mines for 2018 were certainly highlights of the program for this year!

  • Sailing at School

The launch of Sailing at School program, in September, has already been a success in attracting the interest of more than 10 secondary and primary schools. This program will allow thousands of youths to be introduced to sailing during their school activities as of this spring. Various didactic modules adapted to the school curriculum have been and continue to be developed for use in classroom for teachers.

  • Sailing Fair, trainings & others

Various elements that have been developed within the Federation permitted the success this year, especially with the Sailing Fair that continues to grow each year, the increased visibility of sailing with the sailing simulator at promotional events, the establishment of new national and international level training offered in French for the first time, an important media presence, instructors trained throughout Quebec, and an increase in the number of services for our members. In addition to the promotion and training, competitively, the Federation also stood in 2017 with athletes who performed at the Canada Games, but also internationally!

René Dallaire, finalist for the action bénévole nationale Dollard-Morin:

This award is given to a person who has made an exceptional volunteer contribution to the promotion and development of a sport during the year. René is a volunteer director and also the founder of the Association Québécoise de Voile Adaptée (AQVA). Passionate about sailing, René is no doubt the person who has aided in developing adapted sailing in Quebec. 2017 was an award year for René since he received the Quebec National Order, the highest distinction in Quebec from the Premier Minister, Philippe Couillard, for his volunteer involvement both in the sailing world and other circles. He also won the Volunteer of the Year award from Sail Canada. Finally, in 2017, more than 200 people have benefited from the programs of the Association Québécoise de Voile Adaptée, both recreational and competitive sailing.

Congrats to all!
