Warrior Sailing

A Learn to Sail Camp for Active Military and Veterans

The Glenmore Sailing Club (GSC) in Calgary is partnering with The Royal Canadian Yacht Club, Dave Scott and Kari MacKay to bring Warrior Sailing to Calgary in the Summer of 2018.

Warrior Sailing Program ~ Basic Training Camp
Introduces active military and veterans to sailing regardless of age, gender and race. 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.
