Each summer the Lake Osoyoos Sailing Club offers Learn to Sail courses, designed by the Canadian Yachting Association, for persons 10 years of age and older. The courses offered include Can Sail 1, 2 and 3.
Taught by a certified instructor, the courses take 15 hours to complete and are usually scheduled in three-hour daily lessons that run Monday to Friday. The morning sessions are from 9am to 12pm, and the afternoon sessions are from 1pm to 4pm.
For those hesitant to sign up for a week's course, the club also offers a 3-hour Introduction to Sailing class that occurs concurrently with the courses, provided space is available. If you want to give sailing a try, this is an opportunity to get your feet wet.
