The Glenmore Sailing Club is the home of Calgary's sailboat racing community. Since 1959 the Club has offered something for everyone regardless of abilities for sport and recreation of sailing. The Club keeps a year-round calendar of sailing and social activities.
The Glenmore Sailing Club overlooks the Glenmore Reservoir and the Weaselhead Natural Environment Area. The large deck is a great place to watch the sailboats, kayaks, canoes and amazing sunsets to the west over the Rocky Mountains.
Wednesday Night Racing
May through mid-September Wednesday Nights are race night! Keelboats and dinghies line up for nightly and seasonal honours in our Wednesday Night Racing Series.
After Racing Socials
When the racing is done for the evening, the Club comes alive with "sailor's lies" over a beer and a burger before the night's awards are presented. The stories and friendships last forever.

Youth Sailing Camps and Youth Racing Team
Accessible and affordable, youth sailing camps include land-based and on-the-water education in the Optimist sailboat. One of the most popular youth sailboats, even for the youngest child can learn to sail the Optimist.
Sunday Afternoon Racing in the Fall
In the fall we shift the racing to Sunday Afternoons. Bring your toques and gloves, the fall winds are great and we race from mid-September until the end of October.
All the boats sailed at GSC are trailerable and we take advantage of that by towing them off to regattas at other lakes to sail in Alberta, BC and the Pacific Northwest.
