INTERESTED IN COMPETING FOR CANADA ON THE INTERNATIONAL SCENE?!
CICSA currently holds qualifiers for the World University Match Racing Championship and the Student Yachting World Cup. The Canadian Championship help in the fall is the qualifier for the next years event (see the scheduling page). Some teams in Canada also attend EDHEC – a sailing and land competition held in France in April of each year. (Details on past campaigns below!)
If you’re interested and are a new team – contact CICSA at email@example.com.
If you are a current team – contact your team executive and have your CICSA Representative (which you should have) get in touch with the exec directly.
BUT WAIT – there are other opportunities!
You can compete for Canada at the Summer Universiade (like this in the 2011 edition in China) or there are other interesting opportunities that could be explored including potentially team racing with BUSA in England (Canadian Team’s have gone) .. or future partnerships with ICSA for their fleet racing championships! What’s missing here is your effort to help craft these opportunities for the next level sailing outside of the domestic level, and into the international scene!
Get in touch to discuss further and help create a better Canadian University and Collegiate sailing governing body!
