Sailing Sampler

Are you just looking to get out on the water to see if sailing is for you? Then let our staff take you out for a 3-hour or 6-hour Sailing Sampler! It will be just the unique Nelson experience you are looking for!

You can decide if you want to participate and learn the ropes, or you can sit back, relax and enjoy the mountain view!

What is our Sailing Sampler?

Join us for a 3-hour or 6-hour sail on our flagship vessel Spindrift. For our Sailing Sampler we will spend all our time on the water getting a feel for sailing and we will help you to discover the beauty of sailing on Kootenay Lake. Learn some basic knots, sailing terminology and even take the helm! Or, you can sit back, relax and let the Sail Nelson staff take care of everything! There are no prerequisits for the Sailing Sampler. Just you and your sense of adventure!

Students will receive a Sail Nelson Certificate of Completion at the end of this course. This course is equivalent to the Sail Canada Introduction to Boating course.
