CAA Race training

Below is an invitation from the Canadian Albacore Association's Allan Measor for Sundays of training on May 27th, June 24thJuly 29th.

For the purpose of getting a group of TISC sailors organized and sharing information and perhaps transportation, we've created "events". 

It is mandatory that you register or cancel your registration 7-days in advance of each clinic. You're not obligated to sign up for the TISC "events".

Hi Fellow Sailors,
