Adult Sailing - Kingston Yacht Club has a celebrated history of instructing Junior Sailors and Adults. We have several options for Adults who wish to learn to sail on keelboats. Adult courses are offered weekday evenings (typically six to eight evenings) 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM on a Shark keelboat. Daytime courses are also scheduled weekdays or over two weekends.
Members may be invited to crew on club members’ boats, participate in races and have clubhouse privileges to enjoy our fine dining and social events. Single or Family members who qualify to become a skipper of our Community Club keelboats are able to take out a boat on their own. Please click here for more info on the Community Club
Several of our members volunteer to offer a Mentoring Program on our Community Club boats for members who wish to further develop their sailing skills.
Note that all Adult Sailing courses on our keelboats require students to bring their own Personal Flotation Device (or Life Jacket), wear non-marking shoes and obtain a Pleasure Craft Operator Card (Transport Canada requirement to be on the helm of a pleasure craft which has a motor.) Courses are available on line or in a classroom www.cpsboat.ca
The schedule of our 2017 Adult Sailing courses will be available on line as soon as instructors’ schedules are confirmed.
