Glenmore Sailing Club

The Sailing Club 

The Glenmore Sailing Club overlooks the Glenmore Reservoir and the Weaselhead Natural Environment Area. The deck provides a great place to watch the sailboats, kayaks, canoes and amazing sunsets.

The Glenmore Sailing Club has been home to Calgary's sailing community since 1959.  The club offers something for everyone regardless of abilities - sport, recreation, competition - with a year round calendar of sailing and social activities.

During the season, Wednesday Night is race night!  When the racing is done for the evening, the Club comes alive with "sailor's lies" over a beer and a burger before the night's awards are presented. The stories and friendships last forever.

The Glenmore Sailing Club is a unique venue for weddings, birthdays, or corporate functions of up to 100 people. Our facility is fully wheelchair accessible including showers in the change rooms. 

Come visit us and see if the ambiance of our clubhouse is right for your event.

Glenmore Sailing Club sailor wins division in TransPac 2017

Veteran Calgary sailor Christopher Lemke and crew won their division of the prestigious TransPac Yacht Race after 12 grinding days of sailing across the Pacific.  Joining Skipper and Navigator Lemke is a multinational crew including Watch Captain Brad Lawson from Denver CO, Alan Carley from Victoria BC and Andrew Nelson from Tacoma, WA.

The TransPac is a classic test of seamanship and teamwork, attracting the top professional crews from around the world.  Yachtsmen cross 2300 nautical miles (4140 km) of open ocean from Long Beach, CA to Honolulu, HI.  This year’s entries range from Lemke’s Hobie 33 to the 100’ maxi yacht “Comanche” from the New York Yacht Club who will be aiming to smash the course record.

“We’re proud to represent Calgary and the Glenmore Sailing Club on the international stage”, says Lemke.  “Although we’re the smallest boat in the race, if the conditions are right we’re hoping to pull off a strong performance.  The boat is made for a downwind race like this.  It really takes off when we hoist that big spinnaker and start surfing those beautiful Trade Wind swells."
