Welcome to Calgary's sailing community.

The Start Keelboat Sailing course develops fundamental keelboat crew sailing skills in moderate daytime conditions.

During your two-day course (9am - 5pm both days) you will have ashore and on-the-water instruction. We sail the Club's SanJuan 21 keelboats.

There is an pre-course workbook to complete and bring to your course. We review and mark it together. 

When you sign up, you can purchase at a discount the newly revised edition of the Basic Cruising Skills book. It's 208 illustrated pages covering all the skills for Sail Canada's introductory Learn to Cruise programs. The book guides a novice sailor through the language of sailing, rigging sails and lines, and the safe operation a sailboat.
