General Information

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 coachboat on the water or on shore, depending on the skills of the sailor. We will send a pre-class package to each participant two weeks before the course starts. Keep in mind our sport depends on the water and weather conditions and there might be changes in the schedule.

For School Groups contact us directly at 204-925-5647. The Winnipeg Sailing Centre at Fort Whyte Alive is located at 1961 McCreary Road in Winnipeg. Please contact us at the Sail Manitoba office at 204-925-5648 or sailing.admin@sportmanitoba.ca if you have question about our sailing classes.
