David Christie, Branch Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal, Britannia has generously donated $8,000 towards the purchase of a new coach boat for NSC’s Able Sail programs!
A heartfelt thank you to all volunteers who gave up their Saturday morning to get the sailing school operational.
This indefatigable crew made short work of hauling 60 boats, 120 dolly wheels, assorted masts and what nots out of the sailing school, not to mention assembling over 60 dollies, taking down boat racks and getting the sailing school shipshape. All this was accomplished in the space of 2.5 hours – a record! AWESOME!

Positions for Sailing Instructors and a Sailing School Administrator are now posted online.
