Boom Mobile Sailing Schools
In an effort to bring sailing to more people across the province, Ontario Sailing equips two complete mobile sailing schools that travel to different locations every summer. Each mobile team, consisting of two qualified instructors, delivers Sail Canada’s CANSail 1 & 2 basic sailing levels for students ages 8-14 during the day time, as well as adult evening lessons if requested. The mobile units are equipped with eight learn to sail boats, two coach boats, teaching aids and Lifejackets/PFD’s for all participants. A third mobile team is on the road focusing primarily on Lake Simcoe locations. Typical courses for youth run from Monday through Friday, 9am – 4pm. Adult classes, if scheduled, run from 6pm -9pm, Monday-Thursday. Individual host sites may arrange different times or days so check with the host in your area to get exact details.
The primary goal of the BOOM Mobile Program is to aid communities or clubs with the development of their own sailing schools over time. For those moving towards developing a Learn-To-Sail program in your community, this program is a great way to promote the sport and gain support and interest in the community.
If there is no accredited sailing school at your sailing club or in the community, let us bring one of our BOOM Mobile Sailing Schools to you! Now running for over 35 years, Ontario Sailing’s BOOM mobile program has introduced over 30,000 people to the sport of sailing.
