Welcome to Calgary's Sailing Community.

Since 1959, the Glenmore Sailing Club has provided Education, Recreation, Racing and Social Events.

Youth Sailing

Accessible and affordable, our Summer Sailing Camps include land-based and on-the-water education in the Optimist sailboat, one of the most popular youth sailboats. Children 5 and up can learn to sail the Optimist. Additional youth coaching available through our Youth Team.

Learn to Sail

You want to charter a sailboat on the west coast or the Caribbean... we can help you learn how to sail.

You love the mental chess of competition... and have wanted to learn how to sail, we can help you learn how to sail.

You want to take your family and friends sailing... we can help you learn how to sail.

Our sailing lessons (Sail Canada national lesson program) will give you the fundamental skills to enjoy sailing all the way up to advanced sailing techniques. 

You don't need to go buy a boat to enjoy sailing.
After you have built up the skills to be safe and enjoy solo sailing, the Club has a fleet of boats available to members


There's an active year-round social calendar... First Wednesday Socials in the off season, a burger and a beverage at the Club every Wednesday evening after racing, pre- and post-event socials. The stories and friendships last forever.


New sailors often shy away from Competition saying "it is something to do when I'm experienced." Racing sailboats can be done at all levels of experience. Racing adds structure to your "sailing around" time. 
One season of racing = years of "sailing around" time.

  • Wednesday Night Racing - early May through mid-September. This is  some of the best experience you can get to improve your sailing.
  • Fall Sunday Series - Sunday afternoons mid-September until the end of October. Bring your toques and gloves, the fall winds are great.
  • Weekend Regattas - local and away, there are many opportunities to go sailing.
Sign up for Racing School (free) or join the Pickup Crew List (also free) and get out on a sailboat with experienced sailors to see what racing is all about and if it is something you might enjoy.
