Petty Officer First Class Cory Bernard is about to join 50 other teenage Royal Canadian Sea Cadets at the National Sailing Regatta held in Kingston, Ontario August 20-27. The competition involves the best sailors from each province in 4 days of racing. Testing their seamanship, strategy and physical endurance, this is the culmination of years of training provided by the sea cadet program.

Cory will represent Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps FRASER at the highest level of competition for Sea Cadets. The annual regatta is held on the waters of Lake Ontario off Ft. Henry and the Royal Military College of Canada. Cory earned his berth at the event by placing 3rd at the National Qualifying Regatta held during the May long weekend in Victoria.

Twelve races are scheduled to take place during the national regatta. Sailing 420 class dinghies, rigged with trapeze and spinnaker, teams of two will sail a modified Olympic triangle course.
