If you are looking for some more experience, Calgarians are avid sailors. The Glenmore Sailing Club (Glenmore Sailing Club - Calgary, Alberta
) has one of the most active San Juan
21 fleets around; they are often looking for crew. If you show up at the Heritage Park boat launch on Wednesdays at about 5:00 - 5:30 with a pfd
, shoes and gloves you may just get a ride. Beer
and burgers to follow at the club house. At least three of the San Juans are owned by ISPA instructors. A couple of other instructors are crew.A couple of the San Juan
instructors are partners in a Beneteau
36.7 which they race
out of Sidney.
The Foothills Association of Cruiser Sailors (Foothills Association of Cruiser Sailors
) meets once a month. They organize trips out on the coast as well as elsewhere.
The Calgary Yacht Club is at Chestermere, they also organize trips to the coast.
Just curious - with which sailing school
are you taking your lessons? I work with a couple on the coast as well as one here in Calgary.
