Sailing School

The aim of the Sailing School is to introduce new adult sailors to the fundamentals of sailing; to help them learn to sail safely and especially to have fun.

The club uses the Canadian Yachting Association's CANSail dinghy program to bring students to the CANSail 2 competency.

Successful graduates will be offered a trial membership in the club which enables them to continue using the sailing school dinghies to enhance their skills.

Our courses are geared to adults (19 yrs. or older).

Want to connect with your classmates while you take the course, or reconnect with the people you took it with a few years ago? We have a sailing school group on facebook.

Successful graduates of the Sailing School

Successful graduates of the Sailing School are offered a TRIAL MEMBERSHIP in the club at a reduced rate. This allows you the use of the club dinghies and facilities for the balance of the membership year (April of the following year). CANSail 1 graduates must sail with a qualified skipper until they achieve their CANSail 2 certification, however.

This is a "non-voting" membership, but will allow you to practice your newly acquired skills and familiarize yourself with the club. It is our hope you will rejoin as full members the following year.

If you have any questions about our courses, please contact the Sailing School Director -
