The 2018 Easter Seals Ottawa Family Sail & BBQ will be setting sail on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at the Nepean Sailing Club.
Our 23rd annual Easter Seals Family Sail & BBQ is a great opportunity to celebrate summer, get out on the Ottawa River and have some fun with pirates! Easter Seals kids and their families are invited to spend the day on the water with our volunteer Skippers in a pirate-themed water fight. This event offers a unique opportunity for Easter Seals children to not only benefit from, but also actively participate in, a fabulous day on the water. Following the family sail, enjoy a delicious BBQ hosted by Century 21 and some fun interactive activities on shore at the Nepean Sailing Club.
Remember, it’s a pirate-themed water fight so costumes and water guns are encouraged!
