We offer the following courses weekdays, weeknights and weekends:
- CANSail Lessons for Youths & Adults
- Wet Feet and CANSail Lessons for Kids
- Day Camps for Kids
- School Programs
Safety is a priority in all of our courses, and FortWhyte’s small lakes provide an excellent venue for safe and exciting sailing. Our student ratio is 1:5 and lifejackets, which are provided, are mandatory while on and around the water. Our certified instructors will always be close by either in a coach boat on the water or, depending on the skills of the sailor, on shore.
