CBYC Learn to Sail Programs

NEW: Due to the ongoing public health emergency, CBYC has made the difficult decision to cancel all 2020 youth and adult learn to sail programs. For further details please see the  CBYC Sailing School COVID-19 Update

Whether you’re 8 or 80 – come out and experience two of Kingston’s best assets – great wind and water. Collins Bay Yacht Club offers an ideal location for beginner sailors and those wanting to refresh their skills on the sheltered waters of Collins Bay in the city’s west end.

The CBYC Sailing School operates from May until the end of August and offers two programs:

  • Youth Learn to Sail, for youth from 8 to 17, is run as a series of two-week summer day camps in July and August;
  • Adult Learn to Sail, for students 18 or older, is run in the evenings and on weekends from May until August. For adults we offer Adult Learn-to-Sail courses on both dinghies and keelboats.

While not a part of the Sailing School, CBYC also offers a live-aboard Learn to Cruise program for adults interested in learning to cruise in a cruising sailboat.

CBYC has recently started up a Women’s Sailing Program  –  to allow women sailors to share their experience and practice together.
