Learn-to-Sail and Casual Recreational Sailing in a Package

For many, the most daunting aspect of learning how to sail in Vancouver is getting local access to sailboats and finding other sailors to Crew for you. If you don't own a sailboat or know sailors in your area, these obstacles can be tricky to overcome.

Expense, time and energy sometimes work against you. The Vancouver Sailing Club addresses this with high quality sailing instruction and J24 or Beneteau First 36.7 sailboats from a downtown False Creek location.
