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 have fun.
The club uses the Canadian Yachting Association's CANSail dinghy program. CANSail levels 1 & 2 are usually offered together, while the more advanced 3 and 4 levels are generally held separately so that students have more time to practice and gain their skills!
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, but if you have a teenage family member (16 yrs. or older) who wishes to take the course with you, contact the Sailing School Director. The fact that some of our students are seniors proves that it's never too late to learn, especially when it comes to sailing. You will almost certainly make new friends and sailing buddies.
