Warrior Sailing

Learn how to crew and helm a sailboat.
Teamwork, unit cohesion, and fun.

Free 3-day learn to sail camp.

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 2019 during our 60th anniversary year.

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. 

Call 403-560-3532 for a conversation about Basic Training Camp.

I am interested in Warrior Sailing!

What is the cost of the Basic Training camp?

  • 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.

Can I bring my dog?

  • Service animals are accepted at the Basic Training Camp. Dogs are not allowed onboard 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. 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 3 or 4 participants and an onboard coach and the SanJuan 21 keelboats are great for learning on. The fun factor will be high. 

Can the sailboats accommodate people with disabilities?

  • We have some experience supporting people with disabilities... The Glenmore Sailing Club started the Disable Sailing Association of Alberta a couple decades ago. 
  • We're partnering with the Disable Sailing Association of Alberta for this event. Their Sonar keelboats easily accommodate people with disabilities.
