The Glenmore Reservoir is open for recreational sailing.

Youth Summer Camps - because of the pandemic, this summer we are only running a CANSail 3 course in August. See the calendar for details.

Please email us if you are interested in private or semi-private youth lessons and for other CANSail levels

Adult Keelboat lessons will resume in 2021.
