Since 2004, the mission of the Vancouver Sailing Club (VSC) has been to provide adults with a fun and comprehensive sailing education that exceeds internationally recognized certification requirements for Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced recreational sailing.
Our Instructors are selected for their ability to mentor new and advanced sailors in reaching their coastal, offshore, ocean and racing sailing goals. Our VSC Instructors welcome you to CONTACT US to discuss your sailing goals, level of experience and personal requirements. With this understanding we will prepare a road map of resources and activities to achieve your goals at your pace.
