General Information

We are located in the City of Belleville on the beautiful Bay of Quinte and it is a short walk to the city centre and restaurants. Our home sailing grounds are in the protected waters of the Bay, one of the best boating areas in Canada. Within a natural park setting children, youth, teens and adults enjoy sheltered areas, lawns for dinghy storage and a great summer of fun! The Sail Training Committee oversees all the training programs for youth, teens, young adults and adults. This is a group of dedicated club members: - parents and volunteers. We have worked together for 5 years to bring exceptional sail training:- for the youngest sailor in a safe and family style environment, for the budding sailor who wants to learn more about tactics and racing in our learn to race program; for the avid youth racers we run a race team for all CANSail 2+ with weekly regattas that the adult and junior members of the club come out and have great competition in a friendly environment. The Sail Training Committee is building reputable quality instructors and coaches. We have introduced a Coach Mentorship Program, an Instructor in Training Program and each of our instructors builds on their skills each year. Join us! Summer fun on the water! Please Note: We are happy to hear your input and if need be for us to review a program and customize attendance for you; - we are happy to do so. We encourage children to register a minimum of 2 weeks and multiple sessions as beginner sailors need ample time on the water to practice and learn skills; advancing students also require lots of training opportunities and successive stages require many weeks of sailing to pass onto the next level. Sailing will become a life long sport with healthy outdoor values and fun!
