Warrior Sailing Program ~ Basic Training Camp

Introduces active military and veterans to sailing regardless of age, gender and ability. Through this fun and intense 3-day camp, participants are taught how to manage a boat on the water. It’s about teamwork, self-reliance and fun.

Through classroom sessions, on-the-water sessions, debriefings and racing... the concepts and practices to be a successful sailor are learned and applied. The Basic Training Camp concludes with a dinner and an Awards ceremony.

FAQ

  • This is a no cost event for qualified participants. We provide instruction, facilities, equipment, sailboats, coaches, meals, and local transportation.

Can I bring my dog?

  • Service animals are accepted at the Basic Training Camp. Dogs are not allowed onboard boats. Dog watchers available for the time spent on the water (approx. 4 hours per day). You will be responsible for any additional charges or fees associated with your service animal. If you do not require your service animal, please come to the Basic Training Camp without them.

Is sailing safe?

  • Our camps are as safe as possible. Each sailboat will have an onboard coach and keelboats are great for learning on.
    The fun factor will be high.
  • Each sailboat will have 3 or 4 participants and one onboard coach.

Can the sailboats accommodate people with disabilities?

  • We have some experience supporting people with disabilities... The Glenmore Sailing Club initiated the Disable Sailing Association of Alberta a number of years ago. 
  • The keelboats we will be sailing can accommodate people with disabilities.
  • For some people with a disability, the Martin 16 sailboat might provide a better learning experience. These boats also have an onboard coach for safety and coaching.
