The first event of the Glenmore Sailing Club's sailing season is "Indoor Sailing"... We're excited to be part of Sport Calgary's "All Sport One City".
This is the earliest the sailing season has ever started in Calgary.
All Sport One City is an opportunity for Calgarians to try a new sport or get back to one they previously enjoyed.
This introduction to sailing event is supported by Rogers Rent-All... their industrial fans along the length of the pool are providing the wind to move the boats.
Participants will have 30 minutes of "sailing and safety" instruction before getting into the boats in the pool for 30 minutes of sailing. The Club will have six of our Optimist sailboats in the pool for Indoor Sailing, and our volunteers will be in and around the pool for coaching and safety.
This discovery session is tailored to introducing the fundamentals of sailing to youth 13-18 years old up to 68 kg / 150 pounds.
The Optimist is the most popular youth training sailboat on the planet (there are hundreds of thousands of these youth training sailboats enjoyed by youth around the globe).
