Waeg Sailing 

Welcome back, Waeg Sailors! We’re very much looking forward to another fantastic sailing season here at The Waeg, and we hope you are too! Year after year, we strive to improve the operation and offerings of our sailing program, and we are so grateful for the incredible sailing community here at The Waeg.

The Junior Sailing Program at The Waegwoltic Club is focused on providing instruction in a fun, safe and positive environment. We strive to teach practical theory and on-water skills while emphasizing camaraderie and a passion for the sport. The Junior Sailing Program models itself on the CanSail program that was developed by Sail Canada (formerly known as the Canadian Yachting Association, CYA) and implemented in 2012.  All of our instructors and coaches have received training and certification based on Sail Canada’s national standards. CanSail programming means lots of time on the water in an active learning environment, with relatively less time spent in a classroom. Sailors learn the skills and enter into fun and challenging experiences suited to their age and stage of development. The programming is designed to get - and keep - sailors excited about sailing for life!

As always, returning sailors who were registered with The Waeg for sailing in the previous year will have advance opportunity to register for the current year's programming.

In response to feedback from our members, we have tailored our sailing programs to include some of the same conveniences of our new summer camp program. All weekday programs now run from 9am to 4:30pm, with early drop-off and late pickup options, as well as a lunch plan option available to all sailors.

All of our sailing staff will now be required to complete training in High Five’s Principles of Healthy Child Development.

Finally, given the popular demand, we're continuing to offer our Adult Women's Sailing Program for participants with all levels of experience.

Interested in a sailing program that you don't currently see offered at The Waeg? Contact our Program Manager, Katelyn Matheson, at katelyn@waegwoltic.ca, or at 902.429.2822 (ext. 2).
