Canada Post Strike

The Canada post strike will affect the registrations of the sailing school since it is the primary means by which we collect registrations and payment.
In the event the mail service in our region is completely stopped. The sailing school will make accommodations to collect registrations by other means. You can email your registration information saving a spot in a session. We can then collect the cheque on the first day of School.
