Royal Lake of the Woods Yacht Club Sailing Program 2020

**Please note: in order to run the Sailing Program this summer, we have changed the format of our day to day classes to run within Covid 19 guidelines and protocols. We request your patience, understanding and assistance as we move forward.

We are excited to provide morning and afternoon classes, running 3 hours each.
The sailing staff will organize the AM and PM classes according to individual sailing ability and levels once all registration is complete. Thank you for your cooperation!


Course Descriptions


These classes will sail single-handed in club or personal boats, with the aim of developing boat-handling skills. Students will learn to steer on all points of the sail and maneuver around the triangle course. Fun activities will focus on sailing, theory, learning knots and good sportsmanship.

Race Team

Race Team is a fun way for young sailors ages 11- 18, to build a solid sailing and racing foundation. Racing skills will be taught at an age appropriate level to prepare young athletes for regatta competition. Wednesday afternoon races are an integral part of classes, as well,  participation in the Weekend Series of races is strongly encouraged. In addition to weekly coaching, the season will feature participation in the Richardson Regatta (July 25 & 26) and other Sail Manitoba regattas.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in the Opti training camp prior to the Richardson Regatta on July 23 & 24.



Private lessons may be booked with the Head of Sailing, depending on instructor and boat availability.
