The small lakes at the Winnipeg Sailing Centre at Fort Whyte Alive provide an excellent venue for safe and exciting sailing. Sail Manitoba aims for safety while sailing. Our instructor/student ratio is 1:6, and lifejackets (which are provided) are mandatory while on and around the water. We also have helmets available should a student choose to wear one. Our CANSail certified instructors will always be close by either in a coach boat on the water or on shore.
Our CANSail Program is a Sail Canada certified course. All of our instructors are fully certified through Sail Canada. Their extensive training includes fundamental training, technical training in sailing, coach boat safety, first aid, boating safety, and Respect in Sport certifications
