Races are our main activities and ambitions. They are the best ways to experience team performance and test the sailing skills that our members acquire all year-long.
We participate in local, national, and international races. Our crew onboard Esprit de Corps II won the 2016 edition of the Halifax to Saint-Pierre Ocean Race.
From February to May 2017, our yachts are in the Caribbean’s to take part in international regattas : the RORC Caribbean 600, Les Voiles de St Barth, Antigua Sailing Week, and Antigua to Bermuda. This Tour is a first-ever for our team, and a major step for the French Canadian sailing community.
Taking part in races is key to promote our sport and performance in Québec and Canada.
Every year our fleet is sailing across Québec, North America, and the Caribbean’s. On each of our yachts, we have the capacity to host crews who want to live a unique experience. The ones who enter the adventure with us become active crews onboard, with a necessity to be part of every manoeuvres, sleeping on watches, and every tasks that a crew must do under the leadership of our skippers.
Atlas Ocean Racing is not only involved in the sailing community through ambitious objectives, but also with other foundations to share with them the true values of sailing.
1. Junior Sailors
In order to be a real support for the development of performance sailing in Canada, every year we host dozens of Junior Sailors who come to meet our sailors and visit our yachts for a day.
These activities are offered to schools and sailing camps in every stopover that we make. It’s a good opportunity for the Junior Sailors to put sailing into perspective, and learn more about professional sailing thanks to workshops.
2. Foundations Support
Because caring and sharing are one of the most important values of sailing, our team offers sailing experiences to foundations 3 to 4 times a year, thanks to Groupe Esprit de Corps. These sailing activities can be offered to support a fundraising event, or to award the good deed of an organisation/team.
In the last years, we’ve had the pleasure and honor to host or support Fondation Marie-Vincent, l’Ancre des Jeunes, Fondation du Cancer du Sein, Mères avec Pouvoires, and Montréal Inc.
