The goal of the Junior Sailing Program is to teach safe sailing and introduce sail boat racing to the children of the members of the Wabamun Sailing Club.

Activities are provided for beginner and intermediate sailors aged 8 to 12 years. The program typically runs on 7-8 Saturdays throughout the summer, with beginner classes in the morning and intermediate classes in the afternoon.

Jul 16, 2012 - More than just a fun week of sailing, we hope kids will join this week-long training program where they can develop their sailing skills and training discipline much further. Generally, the instructors will be following the new CYA CANSail program which is replacing CYA's old white/bronze sail programs.

There will be a cap of 7 kids per instructor and, based on the students we can pre-register, we should be able to tailor the content of the classes somewhat to the students abilities. We need at least 10 students to run the course.

The ASA MOSS team will come each day with:

  • Two or three CYA certified instructors
    • Two instructors for up to 14 kids
    • Three instructors for 15 to 20 kids.
  • Ten Optis
  • 4 kayaks
  • One coach boat
  • PFDs
What your child should bring each day:
  • A change of clothes (Maybe some kids should bring two changes!)
  • Lunch arrangements. (We cannot let kids wander too far away at lunch time)
  • Waterproof jacket
  • Their own PFD, if preferred
  • Short wet suit is nice, but not required
  • An voracious appetite to learn and have fun!
