General Information

Welcome to SLSC 2018 Registration.


There are some changes to the programming this year that we have explained in detail on our website. We encourage you to spend a moment to review our Program Page.


Each program fee includes the mandatory $18 CANSail Fee collected by Sail Canada. Each sailor must pay this fee in their first week. Subsequent weeks will be discounted by $18. Please select this discount option for each week your child is registered after the first week, when checking out. Do not select the discount for the child's first week.


PLEASE NOTE:  If a registrant has previously enrolled in a CANSail course (either at SLSC or elsewhere), after choosing your course(s), enter all the mandatory fields in the pop up box, before proceeding. Then select your child from the list that will appear. This will help avoid creating duplicate records. If you need help please contact us via the form at the bottom of the Program Page.

The focus is on fun and building confidence on the water, where young sailors will work on boat safety, balance, sail-trim, basic boat-handling skills and seamanship. On land, sailors will learn basic terminology, rigging, knots, and water safety.
