Dinghy Rec Sail

Learn the basics of sailing right in the heart of historic downtown Kingston, and just minutes from Queen’s University campus! Dinghy Rec Sail is a Learn to Sail program geared towards university age participants who are interested in participating in an outdoor activity and learning a new skill. Lessons are taught in Club 420 Sailing Dinghies (approx. 14 ft long) with instruction from certified Sail Canada coaches. No previous sailing experience is required, and everyone is welcome to sign up!
