Going For Gold in 2008:
The Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club race team won the Gold Medal in the last Ontario Summer Games held at the Nepean Sailing Club in August 2006.
It has now been announced that Ottawa has been awarded the 2008 Ontario summer Games and, as in 2006, Nepean Sailing Club will host the sailing event. A team from SLSC will be back to shoot for Gold in 2008. The 2008 Games will be sailed in 420’s and they are presently scheduled for August 13-16, 2008. A total of 24 boats from accross the province will sail for Gold. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis so we’ll be registering early.
Unlike other regattas, sailors in OSG get the full experience of multisport games competition. It’s an Olympic-like atmosphere with opening ceremonies, an athlete’s village, and social events designed for athletes in all sports. Something to look forward to in the Summer of 08!
