Sailing School

Take a look at what the OYS Sailing School has to offer!

The Oakville Yacht Squadron Sailing School has been proudly serving the Oakville community since 1965, teaching many adults and youth to sail at our great waterfront setting.

Students will receive approximately two thirds of their instruction on the water and the remainder through land classes. Sail Canada CANSail certificates are awarded upon successful completion of a set of practical skills and demonstrated knowledge at each level.14012782_10205943342176553_614646616_o

Youth programs are offered during weekdays in July and August using the OYS fleet for training. Students are grouped in classes according to program level, age and ability.

All OYS Sailing School Instructors are trained and certified by Sail Canada. The Instructors are a minimum of 16 years of age and each has First Aid and CPR training.
