CFSA On Opening Day

The Disabled Sailing Association of B.C., Victoria Branch is graciously hosted by the Canadian Forces Sailing Association (CFSA), located at the North side of Esquimalt Harbour. CFSA supports recreation for military personnel and their families, as well as civilian members of DND, their dependants and a wide range of employees of Federal Government agencies (sailors of DSA Victoria do not need to be one of the above). CFSA has been a strong supporter of DSA Victoria for the over 20 years now, and it’s ideal location provides great winds!
