After battling it out for nearly three months, the top 20 Canadians will face off virtually on Tuesday, August 31 at 8 pm (Eastern Time) in the final races of the inaugural edition of the Canadian eSailing Championship.

Sailing fans will be able to watch it as it happens, as the event will be streamed live on Sail Canada's Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Hosted by two eSailors, Nick Allinson from Sail Canada and Nollind Van Bryce from the Glenmore Sailing Club, the one-hour broadcast will start at 8pm (ET) and will include live action from the Virtual Regatta Inshore platform, fun analysis as well as interviews with the top competitors.

During the final stage of the 2021 Canadian eSailing Championship, participants will compete in six races in 49er boats at the Portsmouth venue with a windspeed of 18 knots to miles.

The top 10 participants in overall standings following these six races - points earned before the final round will be excluded - will qualify for the World Championship that is held annually during the fall and sanctioned by World Sailing. The final date is still to be confirmed.

The final races of the 2021 Canadian eSailing Championship are presented by Helly Hansen Canada, Proud Supporter of the Canadian eSailing Championship, and Parker & Bass, Cash Prize Sponsor.
