OK, so the weather forecast through Thursday looks pretty dire, with predictions ranging from mere “rain” to “severe thunderstorms.” But the sun is supposed to come back just in time for the weekend, which will make conditions just about perfect to catch the end of the Canadian Yachting Association‘s Youth National Sailing Championships at the Nepean Sailing Club.

If you don’t mind a bit of rain, you can catch the last of the Under 19 events tonight through Thursday; Friday through Saturday, the Under 17 events take place. Young sailors from across the country are competing to join the 2011 Canadian Youth Sailing Team.

Even if sailing isn’t your thing, you can’t beat the location, on Lac Deschenes in the Ottawa River, with the Gatineau Hills as a backdrop. Ahoy, mateys!
