Friends of CORK

In 1969, almost 50 years ago, CORK was born, and has been providing some of the best sailing events in Canada ever since.

Each year more than a thousand  youth and adult sailors participate at CORK events, representing clubs from Canada, the US, and around the world.

We have annual events like the CORK International Optimist Regatta, the CORK International Regatta, the CORK Olympic Classes Regatta, National Sea Cadet Regatta, and The CORK Fall Regatta, as well as a variety of additional Youth, Open, Masters, Canadian, North American, and World championships.  An average year has 25-30 full regatta days (sometimes with as many as four separate race courses running at the same time!).

Hundreds of volunteers donate their time and energy each year to registration, measurement, equipment, communications, ramps, race committee, safety, judging, and scoring activities.  More than 100 can be on site at a time, some starting at 8 am and some not leaving until the last protest is heard!  Volunteers come from across Canada, from the United States, and even further afield.

A Canadian not-for-profit organization, CORK relies on sailor fees, volunteers, and a very few sponsorships.

Did you (or a child or grandchild) sail at CORK?  Do you have fond memories of volunteering at CORK?

Please consider joining the Friends of CORK by making a donation to help us run these great events.    Every dollar helps CORK keep its fees reasonable, helps volunteers with travel costs, and maintain the equipment needed to run these world-quality events.

Thank you for any help you can provide!
