AQVA (Association québécoise de voile adaptée)

wishes to enable children and adults with physical and/or sensory disabilities, even very severe ones, to improve their quality of life and their integration into the community through the practice of sailing. Its activities take place in Pointe-Claire but it offers support to its affiliated organizations that offer adapted sailing programs in the Gaspésie and Eastern Townships.

Latest news

Our annual fundraiser is starting!

The Regatta for AQVA has begun registering participants who will raise funds to support AQVA. Last year, more than $70,000 was raised, which allowed AQVA to put forward a development plan that allows, among other things, the children of Camp Massawippi to go sailing this summer!

This year, we can once again count on our partners Tenaquip and Desjardins West Island in this adventure!
