The Club has sailboats available for members - from beginners to Canada Summer Games race boats.
As a Community Sailing Club, we have boats for members to sail. Membership and the annual boat access fee ($200) are very affordable.
Laser (the Club owns 10 of these boats) - The Club's Lasers have multiple sail plans (4.7 / Radial / Full) accommodate sailors as they grow and gain experience. The Laser is the most popular training and racing dinghy in the world.
420 (the Club owns 6 of these boats) - These boats are excellent for all ages. For Youth, they fit into the Long Term Athlete Development Plan and are the transition boat from single-anded to double-handed sailing and particularly for youth wanting to advance to the 29er. For post-secondary students the 420 is the boat used at more than 200 universities in Canada and the USA for collegiate sailing programs. For adults these are great boats for two people to learn to sail / advance their sailing.
29er (the Club owns 2 of these boats) - These are the Ferraris of the Club. As the two person sailboat of the Canada Summer Games the Club is committed to excellence in training for our members representing the province at the Games every four years.

- Club Boats are available for use by Club members on Glenmore Reservoir with a minimum of CANSail 2 (or equivalent).
- There are times when boats are block booked for Club activities (Youth Sailing Camps, events, youth training activities) and are unavailable for general use.
- The annual Club Boat Usage Fee is $200 for the 2019 season (May through October). Compare this with the option of renting a sailboat for $30/hour elsewhere and the cost of buying, storing, maintaining, insuring a sailboat... Such a bargain.
- Optimists and Melonseeds are free of charge for members to use (i.e. not subject to the annual Club Boat Usage Fee).
