Winter sailing on the water program
Come and join the Canadian Forces Sailing Association!
We offer many opportunities for kids, adults and families to get out and have fun on the water!
Joining the club is easy and inexpensive, and half year rates are now in effect. You can go to our website www.cfsaesq.ca or send an e-mail to our membership committee firstname.lastname@example.org
When you join you gain access to a sailing club with fleets of sailing dinghies, a SONAR 23 Sport boat and an active racing programme – not to overlook the most active all ranks mess/clubhouse on the base.
Our Junior Race Team practices throughout the fall and spring, participating in regattas around BC, the Pacific Northwest and North America. Junior sailors have typically attended our CANSail camps
and are between 8-19 years of age. They can compete in Optimist, Club 420 and Laser class dinghies. Junior Sailors are members of the club and are welcome to practice and compete with club boats as part of the organised race team practices or as self-organised dropin practices. The first regattas of the New Year start in February and our Spring Season begins in early April with professional coaches and some eager sailors that make the team a fun and social environment.
More information can be found by contacting Charlotte our Race Team Director SailingInstructor@cfsaesq.ca
Adult members of the club take part in Sunday racing almost every week in privately owned keelboats and the club owned SONAR 23 Sport Boat. This can be a great way to learn about sailing, join a crew and meet people who are passionate about the sport of sailing. The club has a policy of “leave no one on the dock” on club race day. Our website has the racing schedule and the Fleet Captain is always willing to answer questions and play matchmaker between new-crew and skippers. FleetCaptain@cfsaesq.ca
Owning a sailboat is fun and a great way to have a floating cottage on our beautiful Pacific Coast. It gives families easy and fun access to marine parks and islands that most people will never see or visit. Moorage is available to members at our docks and we have a lively cruising fleet that helps members expand their cruising skills with organised cruises and planning sessions. If you’re interested in moorage contact the Wharfingermoorage@cfsaesq.ca
