The Junior Sailing Program at Hudson Yacht Club has got it all for aspiring young sailors! Our enthusiastic staff of instructors and coaches are there to teach and inspire your kids, in a program for all sailing levels.

We are committed to accommodate the growing demand we have experienced in the Junior Sailing Program. Our priority remains the safety of the children, as well as providing well-maintained equipment, knowledgeable instructors and quality instruction in a friendly and fun environment!

The programs are based on the Sail Canada “CanSail” Program. This competency-based program provides safe and standardized instruction for recreation and competition in sailing dinghies. Students are instructed in sailing theory, sailing technique and care and maintenance of the boats. Priority is given to on-water practice of these skills.


Programs are available to Members and Non-members between the ages of 6 and 18. Space in the program is limited in order to ensure the safety of the children and the quality of instruction.


  • Life-jacket: All students will be required to furnish and wear a M.O.T. approved life jacket when on or near the water. Life-jackets should be of a bright colour.
  • Change of clothing.
  • Sailing shoes: All students will be required to wear soft-soled sailing shoes or the equivalent at all times.
  • All students must be able to swim and tread water.


The Adult Sailing Course has been designed to introduce the novice or the individual with limited experience to the sport of sailing.

Please note: Adult Sailing cancelled for 2021
