Start Keelboat Sailing
Learn to Sail

Sailing is a great activity for anyone who enjoys water sports or outdoor recreation. As both a recreational 
pastime and an exhilarating sport, sailing offers something for everyone... regardless of age, gender or physical ability.

Start Keelboat Sailing participants learn through on-land instruction and on-boat time in a keelboat with a Sail Canada accredited instructor.

Courses are four days over two consecutive weekends and include:

  • women's only (female instructor)
  • family (up to four family members can enjoy learning together)
  • open classes (available for everyone)

Lessons provide a fun and engaging learning opportunity.

Our lessons are taught by experienced sailors with, in some cases, decades of sailing experience. They distill their knowledge down to the essential elements you need to know to have a memorable learning experience and set you up for success if you want to continue sailing.

Adult Keelboat lessons are taught in the SanJuan 21 keelboat. The local fleet of SanJuan 21s is the largest and most active in North America.

Registration will open in February 2019. 

What can I do after these first lessons?

Continue learning about the sails on a keelboat with the Keelboat Spinnaker Course.

This course builds on the Start Keelboat Sailing course and teaches how to work with a spinnaker in light to moderate wind.
