Whistler Learn To Sail


Feb 23, 2016

The Whistler Sailing Association’s 2016 roster of Learn to Sail programs are now posted online.  There are Kids and Youths programs as well as Adult programs.

The Whistler Sailing Association is a group of recreational dinghy sailing enthusiasts who enjoy getting out on Whistler’s Alta Lake for a sail.  They meet throughout the summer Wednesday nights for a fun race followed by a social. They are a fully accredited Sailing School and teach the Sail Canada curriculum. Featuring Sunday Drop in Sailing lessons where members and visitors can simply come down with the family and get out and sail on the lake, they offer a Seasons Pass membership for individuals without boats. For beginners or those wanting to improve their sailing skills, they have Adult and Kids Learn-to-Sail programs.  The purpose is to promote sailing by offering  affordable “Learn to Sail” courses and clinics for all ages and abilities and to promote community spirit by organizing community sailing events.

Whistler Sailing Association was formed in October 2008 in response to strong local interest.  Formed as a non-profit society, Whistler Sailing has grown rapidly to a membership of approximately 200 sailors.  As a non-profit organization, volunteers form the backbone of success.

Teams were out on the water to shake out sails, on the docks making last-minute preparations and in the Regatta Village for registration and most importantly picking up their cases of Heineken.
