Ever dreamed of sailing around the world? Or pictured yourself out on the water, relaxing with the breeze in your face as waves rock gently below. Now’s your chance to learn to sail. We offer a 2 part  course for members and the public. Each course will keep you learning and moving forward with your sailing skills. You’re never too old to learn, and have fun doing it. You can learn to sail on a 25+ foot keelboat with no experience necessary!

The Vernon Yacht Club Sailing Fleet is continuing the annual Learn to Sail program run by volunteer sailors. Kelowna Yacht Club’s Sailing Instructor, Peter Lutsch will teach the Half Day In-Class Theory Course over 2 Saturdays, Feb. 24th and Mar 2nd.
