Free Basic Training Camp
May 28, 29 & 30, 2019

Teamwork, unit cohesion, self-reliance and fun.

Learn to crew and helm a sailboat.

Basic Training Camp is an inclusive 3-day course for active military and veterans to learn and experience sailing through the classroom and on-the-water time in boats.

We start each day with a briefing ashore about fundamental and specific skills we'll be developing during the morning's sailing session.

Following this briefing, you'll head out on the water to go sailing with our experienced onboard volunteer coaches. You'll be doing all the work and the volunteers are there to help you apply the theory we covered on shore.

Afternoons are similar, theory on shore followed by more application on the water.

By the end of Basic Training Camp, you will have learned and applied all the fundamental sailing theory to successfully crew and manage a sailboat on the water.

Participants of all gender, age, and abilities are welcome to participate.

Questions? We have answers.

What is the cost of the Basic Training camp?

  • It's Free. There is no cost for active military and veterans. We provide qualified coaches and instructors, the training facility, all the equipment, sailboats, and meals.

I'm not available all three days of the Basic Training Camp.

  • We'll do this again... ioin us when you have the time.

Can I bring my dog?

  • Service animals are accepted at the Basic Training Camp. Dogs are not allowed on the boats. We'll be on the water for approximately 4 hours per day (afternoons), and we can organize a dog watcher for this time while you are on the water. You will be responsible for any additional charges or fees associated with your service animal.

Is sailing safe?

  • Yes.  And it's fun.
  • Camp sailboats will have 3 participants and an on-board coach. The SanJuan 21 keelboat is a great boat to learn on. 

Can the sailboats accommodate people with disabilities?

  • Yes. 
  • We're partnering with the Disable Sailing Association of Alberta for this event. Their Sonar keelboats easily accommodate people with disabilities. 

If I enjoy sailing, how can I continue sailing after the Camp?
