About our Racing Programme

You'll find lots of opportunities to race during the season. 

You don't need years of experience sailing before you start racing. Build on your basic skills by joining in the racing this season.

1. Racing Events at GSC

  • Weekend Regattas - three weekend Club regattas, and some years we host the Alberta Provincial Regatta

2. Learn and Volunteer for Race Management
We all volunteer to run races at least one per season. It's fun, you'll learn a lot, and RC volunteers are critical to the success of our programme.

Members sign up to volunteer on the Race Committee
