Your Westwood Full Membership gives you access to sailing lessons at very affordable cost. Whether you've never set foot in a boat or you're looking for a refresher, our Learn to Sail class teaches you the basic skills of sailing on our fleet of Albacores. Successful completion of the course certifies you for Sail Canada CANSail Levels 1 & 2.

In 2012, Sail Canada updated their sailing certification lessons and the old "White Sail 1-3" level became "CANSail 1 & 2". To learn more about the new CANSail curriculum, click here.

CANSail 1/2 lessons are $50 (inclusive of HST) with your Full Membership.
