Adult Sail Courses

Sail Dorval 2016

The Royal St. Lawrence Yacht Club is offering its Sail Dorval course in Shark Class boats. The course follows a basic Learn-to-Sail curriculum using a hands on learning approach (Learn by doing). Club-member Peter Bjorn is overseeing the program and coaches are being drawn from our Junior Sailing Program staff. Two sessions are planned for this summer.

Classes are two evenings a week with the first session starting the week of June 7 until the week of July 7, 2016. We meet at 18:30. The cost for the course is $377.00 plus taxes ($433.46 taxes included).

Instructions and clothing to bring to class:

  • Pen and a notebook to each class
  • Lifejacket, Ministry of Transportation approved
  • Towel and a change of clothes to every lesson (sailing can be wet!)
  • Sneakers - always a pair with rubber soles (sandals do not protect the top of your feet and can scuff the deck on a boat)
  • Dress according to the weather. Rain jacket or foul weather gear, if it is raining.
  • If you are unable to attend a lesson, please advise the office at 514 631-2720.

Session 1 – Tuesdays and Thursdays 18:30 to 21:00

Week of July 12 through week of August 11 (10 evenings)
