Rocky Point Regatta - Volunteers Wanted

RPSA is recruiting volunteers for our annual regatta September 14-15! The regatta is a part of the BC Sailing Circuit and hosts approximately 100 sailors from around the province. This is a great opportunity to be a part of the boating community or to learn more about the sport of sailing and our club. Everyone is welcome!

Fall Adult Learn-to-Sail Program Registration Now Open

Our beginner adult sailing program starts September 7th. No sailing experience required. Participants will learn basic helming skills such as steering, points of sail, docking, rigging, upwind & downwind sailing and tacking in addition to boat safety, sail theory and knots. All participants will be sailing a 420, a 13ft sloop-rigged dinghy, perfect for learning and a great precursor to keel boat sailing and club membership.

Girl Power Sailing Summer Camp

This one week program is designed for girls only aged 7 to 10. The program is similar to Junior Sailing, however it places an emphasis on encouraging the participation of younger girls in sailing and physical activity.

July 15-19, Aug 5-9
