Sailing School Programs

Sailing is a pursuit enjoyed by many as a sport and pastime. Our Sailing School promotes the continued development of sailing skills from beginner through advance. We employ CANSail Level 3-4 certified instructors who provide instruction from our Clubhouse and on the water in Topper, Topaz dinghy Sailboats.

Our programs and courses are established by age group; 7-12, 13-18, & Adult.

CANSail programming means lots of time on the water in a safe, fun and active learning environment, with relatively less time spent in a classroom. Sailors learn the skills and enter into fun and challenging experiences suited to their age and stage of development. The programming is designed to get - and keep - sailors excited about sailing for life!
