BOOM Applications Now Being Accepted!
Deadline: Friday, November 23, 2018
Ontario Sailing is now accepting Applications for the 2019 BOOM Program.
In an effort to bring sailing to more people across the province, Ontario Sailing equips two complete mobile sailing schools that travel to different locations every summer. Each mobile team, consisting of two qualified instructors, delivers Sail Canada's CAN
1 & 2 basic sailing levels for students ages 8-14 during the day time, as well as adult evening lessons if requested.
The primary goal of the BOOM Mobile Program is to aid communities or clubs with the development of their own sailing schools over time. For those moving towards developing a Learn-To-Sail program in your community, this program is a great way to promote the sport and gain support and interest in the community.
If there is no accredited sailing school at your sailing club or in the community, let us bring one of our BOOM Mobile Sailing Schools to you! Now running for over 35 years, Ontario Sailing's BOOM mobile program has introduced over 30,000 people to the sport of sailing.
HOST APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2019 SEASON NOW AVAILABLE!
Deadline: Friday, November 23, 2018
