Portsmouth Olympic Harbour
When Canada hosted the 1976 Olympic games, the sailing events were held at the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, and it is now one of the most renowned sailing venues in North America. With the reliable thermal (15 - 20 knots every afternoon), and the large and accesible marina and clubhouse, it became the venue for the Canadian Olympic Training Regatta ("CORK"). Every year, CORK attracts hundreds of sailors in dozens of different one-design classes, and since we're using the same organizers, you can be assured that the Worlds will run smoothly and professionally.
