TASTE (Totally Awesome Sail Training Experience!)

Want your child to explore what sailing and our programs are about?

Then enroll in TASTE.

Your child (ages 5-12) will be given the opportunity to sail one of our Optimist sailboats while under the close supervision of a CYA certified sailing instructor, in the safe confines of the Yacht Club basin.

This course is just 2 days and with an emphasis on safety and fun, will leave you with a taste for more!

Enroll early as this is very popular and class size is limited.

Continuing in 2018 – CANSail “Wet Feet”

Wet Feet was a new addition to our Sarnia Yacht Club Sail Training Youth Programs in 2016. The introductory CANSail program is specifically designed for students ages 5-8 looking for a two week ½ day introductory Learn to Sail experience. Young sailors have fun while learning skills such as safety, rigging, balance, steering and sail trim. Sessions are offered in two week blocks, currently conducted as a morning only week day program in 2018. If a full day program is required to match parent/guardian schedules please contact our Sail Training Director to discuss potential accommodation(s).
