Junior Sailing Program

Sailing

The Kettles Sailing Program has developed a fantastic fleet of Prams, Lasers, 420’s and a 18 foot Keelboat to provide and safe and enjoyable learning environment for participants to learn and practice their sailing and racing skills.  The Kettles offers five different sailing programs for a variety of age and ability levels:

1) Junior Sailing (ages 7 –11)

The Junior Sailing program uses our fleet of Vanguard prams and 420’s and combines a fun on-water and on-land program in a safe, group oriented setting. Children will work toward the CanSail Wetfeet certification.  Class sizes will be limited.  All students must have the equivalent of Red Cross Swim or RLSS Swimmer Level 4.

Junior sailing classes are Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:00 to 11:30

We recommend beginner sailors enrol for a minimum 2-week period.

2) Regular Sailing (ages 10 and up)

The Regular Sailing program is designed for all sailors aged 10-16 years old, and uses our fleet of Prams, 420’s and Lasers. The program includes on-water sailing skills and on-land instruction on skills such as knots and terminology.  Sailors may work toward CanSail 1-5 Certification Levels. The program also introduces racing in a fun, team-oriented environment.

Regular sailing classes are Monday, Wednesday & Friday mornings 9:00 to 12:00

3) Advanced Sailing (ages 13 and up)

The Advanced Sailing program is designed for enthusiastic sailors who wish to further develop their advanced sailing skills and racing techniques.  It is offered to those registered in the Regular Sailing program who are 13 years and up. Sailors continue to work towards CanSail 4 & 5 Certification and as well focus on improving their racing skills.  

Advanced sailing classes are Tuesday and Thursday 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

 

4) Teenage Sailing Skills (ages 13 and up)

The Teenage Sailing Skills program is designed for teenage sailors who wish to further develop their basic sailing skills in a fun and non-competitive learning environment.  It is offered to those registered in the Regular Sailing program who are 13 years and up.

Teenage Sailing Skill classes are Tuesday and Thursday 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

5) Private Lessons

The Private Sailing lessons are designed to give more individualized instruction.  These lessons are ideal for the teenager or adult who would like to learn to sail or improve their sailing skills.  Lessons are flexible in terms of the time, location and duration.  Private sailing lessons can be run from your cottage with your own boat or from the Kettles with one of our boats.  Lessons are available by request.  Please contact Andrew Atkin for more information and to arrange a time and location at 416-931-6748.

In all sailing programs it is mandatory to wear life jackets.

Whistles attached to jackets are an added safety feature
