Learn to Sail

Learn the basics of sailing aboard a 14 sailboat for 1 or 2 persons for 2  hours, with an instructor on board.

You will be either steering the boat or adjusting the sails under their guidance, this will be give you “hands-on” learning experience while out on the water. 
Given favourable wind conditions, you will learn enough during your lesson to allow you to rent one of our sailboats in light winds.  After your lesson, armed with positive feedback from your instructor and your newly earned confidence, why not come back with a friend and impress them with your new set of skills?  We recommend renting for one hour periods to start.  This will ensure that the winds do not get too high for your level.

Lessons are available on Weekends during the following time slots:
10am - noon, 12:30 - 2:30, 3:00 - 5:00.  
Lessons may be available during the week, please contact us for availability.
