Junior Sailing

The Kettles is pleased to offer a modified Junior program for this summer.  We have been working diligently with the Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit, the Lifesaving Society, Sail Canada and the Ontario Sailing Association to develop a program that meets all the current safety guidelines and restrictions in place due to COVID-19. 

We will be offering sailing instruction this summer at the Kettles in three formats.

  • Small group lessons
  • Private individual lessons
  • Private family lessons

To register, please download:
