HOW REGISTRATION IN OUR KEELBOATING PROGRAM WORKS: Before getting on the water, participants in our Adult & Family program must first enrol in the Term's program and complete their on-land introductory session. Enrolment and the introductory session includes an overview of basic sailing theory, wind direction, and provides an opportunity for participants to ask questions and learn from our instructors in a classroom setting.

SECURE YOUR PREFERRED DATES NOW: Participants are strongly encouraged to select their introductory session and all nine on-water dates throughout the Term at the time of registration. While it is possible to register and pay for on-water sessions throughout the Term, availability is limited.
