Adult Sailing 2024



Kingston is famous for its warm summer breezes and great freshwater sailing. Get out on the water this summer and experience the joy of sailing! Our Adult Sailing programs take place on evenings and weekends right in the heart of historic downtown Kingston, and offer something for everyone. Courses are open to everyone (non-KYC members are welcome), and are either part of the KYC Summer Sailing program or part of the Sail Canada Keelboat Curriculum.
