The International One Meter (IOM) Canadian Sailing Championship was on a June weekend at the Salt Spring Island Sailing Club. There are sailors from all over North America here to race. The boats are technically very sophisticated and complex (they are not toy boats). If they where full size boats it would be as if we where hosting the America Cup.
The Salt Spring Island sailing club has really embraced the IOM racing and fully supports the club members who partake in this racing. There is a little lake off Sunset drive that some of the racers practice on and some travel all over to go to different regattas. If you are looking for a hobby the members are keen on teaching newbys how to do it.
