Online Sailing – Register Now!

Here at the KYC Sailing Academy, we are doing everything that we can to offer sailing programs, while taking every reasonable measure to help ensure the safety of our athletes, coaches, and members.

We have been working closely with our governing bodies – Sail Canada and Ontario Sailing, to navigate the federal, provincial, and municipal legislation around what can and cannot be offered.

Due to the ever changing and unstable nature of the COVID-19 pandemic,  KYC has made the difficult decision to suspend our 2020 Sailing Summer Camp .

Scheduled monthly pre-payments have been stopped. Accounts and credit cards will not be charged for camp fees on April 1, May 1, or June 1, 2020.  Online registration for the remainder of the 2020 season has been closed. All 2020 Camp pre-payments made after December 9th shall be carried forward and applied towards 2021 Sailing Camp fees.

In addition, parents who pre-pay their full sailing camp fees prior to July 1, 2020 shall be eligible for a slot in the 2021 camp without being subject to the typical year-to-year fee increase. If you have yet to complete your full monthly pre-payment plan and wish for your monthly payments to be restarted to take advantage of the new camp price freeze with a guaranteed spot in our 2021 sailing camp, please contact our Program Manager / Head Instructor by email at juniorsailing@kingstonyachtclub.ca

But wait..

To support our sailing community, we are very excited to launch a FREE online sailing program for ALL levels of learners and racers. The virtual sailing program run by our talented coaches will start June 29 th . Please visit our Online Sailing webpage and register today!

A camp. A sailing school. A swimming hole. A summer of memories.

KYC has a long tradition of great coaches, amazing waters and an amazing location to spend a few weeks in the summer. From beginners at any age to advanced racers who have sailed the world’s most famous waterways, KYC offers a day camp, clinics and off-season training.

Parents – sailors or not – be assured that the coaches are not your typical camp instructors. Coaches have spent years training as sailors and national achieved national instructor certification through Sail Canada. Certification includes everything from first aid, water safety, teaching, lesson planning, leadership and most importantly sailing. Using Sail Canada’s CANSail programming – our instructors maximize as much time on the water as possible - depending on Mother Nature of course. More importantly, our instructors and coaches teach their lessons by doing and showing rather than talking and testing.

KYC has been a leader in junior sailing nationally and internationally for more than 100 years. Thousands of sailors have had the opportunity to experience sailing through KYC. Sailors from KYC’s Junior Sailing Program have gone on to compete in collegiate, national, and world competitions; including America’s Cup, and Olympic competitions while developing a lifelong passion and love for the sport.

Our overall goals are simple: Safety, fun, and success.

We provide a safe and fun learning environment for young sailors, and:

  • Teach young people safe boat handling, seamanship, and sportsmanship;
  • Help young people learn to sail;
  • Help young people learn techniques of one-design racing and to help them fully develop their one-design racing skills; and
  • Promote youth sailing competition.
