Introducing Hundreds to the Sport Each Year

Our award-winning sail training programs introduce hundreds of new sailors to the sport each year through introductory learn-to-sail courses and camps. Kids have a blast in summer sailing camps — spending time outdoors, making friends and being on the water.

We have evening courses for adults who want to try sailing or develop their skills. Our friendly, family-oriented club provides an ideal setting for summer sailing camps and race programs geared toward kids, teens, adults and Able sailors.

It takes a community to support the many smiles and inspiring moments that happen at the Sail Training Centre. Volunteers help to maintain equipment, get groups on the water and support instructors and camp staff to make sure everyone has the best experience they can.

Check out the Sail Training volunteer positions currently required, learn about volunteering with Able Sail and submit your interest in getting involved.

Leaders In Training

We will be launching a Leaders In Training (LIT) program this season. If you have a youth between the ages of 13-16 who is interested in being a part of our LIT program this year please have them fill out this FORM.

Our LIT participants will have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, group project initiatives and work with a variety of persons. We ask for a minimum commitment of 1 week or 2 evenings per week.

Group Training

Every year, NSC welcomes several community groups for a day of sail training as part of their program. Four dates are regularly offered in the summer. Stay tuned for more details.


Become an Instructor

The path to turning your passion into a job as a sailing instructor is detailed on Sail Canada’s website and the Ontario Sailing website.

Advanced Training and Certifications

Our partners at Advantage Boating offer a variety of training courses for racers, adults, corporate teams and those looking to take their sailing skills to the next level. Many of the Advantage Boating training courses are offered out of Nepean Sailing Club and some certification courses can be completed online. Your newfound knowledge and skills will build your confidence so you can enjoy even more of what NSC has to offer through its racing programs and cruising scene.

We are very grateful to our partners for all their support. These partnerships are vital to the success of all our programs at the Sail Training Centre.
