Earlier this month, Tourism Kelowna awarded Toni Clarke and the Kelowna Yacht Club the Sport Hosting Award. Partnering with the City of Kelowna and PacificSport Okanagan, Sport & Events Sales Manager Harvey Hubball presented the award to recognize the Kelowna Yacht Club as the host sport organization that raised the standard for hosting a sports event 2016 National Melges 24 Sailing Championships.

By recognizing individuals and clubs in their efforts to attract, bid, and secure events, Tourism Kelowna can further encourage others to think big and work with us to help enhance Kelowna’s profile as a premiere sport destination.
