The Cobourg Yacht Club Learn to Sail program was established in 1965 and offers instruction to everyone who wishes to discover the challenge and excitement of sailing – young and old alike.
Celebrating over 50 years of quality sailing instruction in the Cobourg community, Learn to Sail @ the CYC uses Sail Canada certified instructors. You will learn to handle a 24-foot sailboat, meeting all of the requirements to skipper or crew in the familiar waters of Lake Ontario.
The Basic Sailing course has 6 sessions on the water, including a sailing evaluation, as well as a text, over 190 minutes hours of online screencast videos, the Sail Canada Basic Cruising standard exam, and optionally (if you do not already have a PCOC card) the Pleasure Craft Operator Competency exam.
