The Canadian 49er Class announced today the Canadian Boat Grant Program.
With the aim of bringing younger sailors into the Canadian 49er class, Pitch Pole Skiff Products (aka 49er.ca) will be providing charter boats to young Canadian sailors interested in sailing the Olympic class 49er skiff. The charter boats will be a complete 49er with dolly, a carbon mast and ready to race for a period of one year. This is a perfect opportunity for young Laser, C420 or 29er sailors, both male and female, looking to make the jump into the exciting 49er (or FX) class!
Full details of the program can be found here
Applications shall be submitted by email to Trevor Parekh on or before Thursday, October 25th, 2012.
President, Canadian 49er Class Association
