Try Sailing

  • This location is shown only to members

Join us to try sailing on Lake Ontario. Learn the basics of sailing in an afternoon, and see whether this is a sport for you.

In this session, you will be introduced to a sailing dinghy onshore before moving onto the water to become familiar with some the fundamental sailing skills. 12 people will be together in 4 boats all with a basic but important sailing task to focus on. We will be accompanied by 2 instructors who will provide top class instruction and coaching on the sailing basics and demonstrate when necessary.

This is a joint meetup with GTA Toronto: http://www.meetup.com/gta-adventures/

The Total cost for this event is $42 (including tax + fees), and the amount shown is only a deposit. The remainder ($25 - cash) is payable on the day itself.

 

$35 will be deducted from the cost of the full course if at the end of the try sailing session you want to do the full course!

 

BEFORE SIGNING UP, please read our liability page here: http://www.meetup.com/TorontoTNT/pages/Liability/

What to bring/wear:

Wear comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting a little dirty or wet (you MAY get water splashed on you - if you don't get wet, just let me know and I will ensure that you do!!). Bring a towel and a change of clothing.

You should wear closed-toe footwear (i.e. not flip flops) that you don't mind getting wet.

Sunscreen, baseball cap and water is also recommended (however, it will be later in the afternoon, so sunscreen is optional).

      Hi, Wes, you don't need to know how to swim, but it always helps if you are doing water-based activities. Everyone will be required to wear life preservers.
