26 sailing enthusiasts from all but one yacht club in Cape Breton came together in Baddeck on Saturday, April 14 for the first ever Cape Breton Sailing Summit. Presentations by NS Health & Wellness, Economic Development and Sport Nova Scotia began the day. Those were followed by the participants putting together a SWOT Analysis of Sailing in Cape Breton followed by listing initiatives and priorities.
All agreed it was a very useful and productive day with many relationships established and communication channels opened.
A Summit report will be developed in the next few weeks followed by a list of actions arising from the meeting.
Many thanks to all who attended and for the Bras d'Or Yacht Club for hosting.
