Seminar Details

Join Canadian Ocean Racing for a panel discussion on offshore sailing in Canada. Members of the offshore sailing team share personal accounts of how they each built their careers in offshore sailing - and how you can too! From tall ship education programs to international crewing opportunities, each sailor uniquely finds their path to offshore sailing. Come to this session to learn more about the offshore sailing lifestyle, and how you can bridge the gap from offshore sailing to offshore racing. As Canada’s only dedicated offshore racing program, Canadian Ocean Racing offers unique experiences and opportunities for Canadian sailors looking to sail offshore. Join us to hear about our experience sailing Canada coast to coast and crossing the Atlantic Ocean after a hurricane! www.canadianoceanracing.com
