Sail Manitoba and Fort Whyte Alive have teamed up to offer sailing lessons within the city at the Winnipeg Sailing Centre.
The small lakes at the Sailing Centre provide an excellent venue for safe and exciting sailing. Sail Manitoba aims for safety while sailing. Our instructor/student ratio is 1:6 and lifejackets, which are provided, are mandatory while on and around the water. We have a certain amount of helmets available for our students. Our certified instructors will always be close by either in a coach boat on the water or on shore, depending on the skills of the sailor. Keep in mind our sport depends on the water and weather conditions and there might be changes in the schedule.
For School Groups or Paddling/Sailing Samplers contact Fort Whyte Alive directly at 204-989-3864
An open practice for students who have taken sailing lessons before and are capable to take out a sailboat, are offered on Sundays June 18+25, July 23+30 and August 20+27. We don't take online registration for this programs. Please confirm your attendance with the instructor directly at 204-771-2628.
