Day Sail on a Warship
LOCATION: Vancouver, BC
TBD, 2020 - 0900-1600
The April 04 day sail has been cancelled due to COVID-2019
NOTICE: The Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) has cancelled all public events across Canada due to world events with respect to COVID-19. Unfortunately this includes our day sail scheduled for April 04. Though disappointing, we understand these measures have become necessary until such time as the situation is brought under control, and the world has a better understanding of what measures are necessary to ensure public safety in situations such as these.
The RCN is continually assessing the situation and will advise us in the coming weeks if rescheduling is possible and/or whether our other planned sails will be able to go ahead. Accordingly, we have decided to close the application process for now, but will retain the existing applications until such time as we have confirmation from the RCN. At that time, and depending on the dates/location, we may be able to offer existing applicants the option to be considered for the new date. Please keep a close eye on your inbox (and spam folders!) as well as follow our web & social media channels for updates.
Restrictions: Minimum Age - 12 Years

Operation: This IS You! Application Process
IMPORTANT: Please read carefully before applying
Each eligible woman or girl desiring to attend an Operation: This IS You! event must apply individually on their own merit, using a unique email address they regularly have access to. Though there are no "right" answers, we recommend applicants be thorough, thoughtful and sincere in their responses for best chance of being selected.
The person wishing to attend an event must apply on their own behalf, and must answer the questions in their own words, to the best of their ability. While you may provide assistance, you may not apply on behalf of someone else.
A completed application does not assure acceptance to an event. The selection process for each event varies depending on the quality of information provided, number of applicants, available space, nature of the event and other operational factors.
Admission to an event is by invitation only, without exception. Invitations are not transferrable and do not include any other person other than the successful applicant named in the invitation. RSVPs must be received by the stated deadline in order for the invitation to remain valid.
The information you provide us is protected once completed, and will not be shared with anyone outside of the Achieve Anything Foundation or agency partner hosting the event, without your prior consent.
You may apply to only one event at a time. Within 48 hours of a completed event, your status will be released and you may then apply for other events. If you have previously applied to an Operation: This IS You! event, or as a volunteer for the Achieve Anything Foundation, enter the email address you previously used and then select "login".
You may apply for, and attend more than one Operation: This is You! event, however you may not repeat the same event.
The selection process for an event is ongoing and remains open unless otherwise indicated. We sometimes have last minute cancellations so if you're interested in an event and applications are listed as open - APPLY!
Events may be postponed or cancelled at any time due to circumstances outside of our control.
