This series of talks, open to the entire sailing and boating community of Ottawa, is volunteer- run.  Presenters share their boating and sailing experiences as well as water-based adventures in different parts of the world.

This is one of the best kept secrets of winter for sailors and boaters! All are welcome. There is no charge for attendance.  But we ask that you consider making a donation to the NSC legacy fund when you are presented with that option on Eventbrite.

Presentation will be via Zoom Webinar. Please register on Eventbrite. No-fee tickets will be available approx. one week in advance, with a link to registration published on  Detailed description of each event will be provided at that time.

The series is now complete for 2022. Below are links to the recording of each presentation, including the Q&A sessions. These are on the Nepean Sailing Club YouTube Channel.
