Evening of Sailing - Group Event

If you’re looking for a team-building activity that is fun, offers social interaction and requires cooperation, An

Evening of Sailing may be what you’re looking for. Bring along a group of co-workers, friends, or family and set up a fun evening with us. Cost of event is $25 per sailor.


Sailing requires individuals to step out of their comfort zone and learn new skills. Once in the boat together, crew mates must abandon pre-existing roles and relationships and work together. If they want the boat to go straight, fast, slow, or change direction, they must work as a team. Otherwise, they’ll end up “in irons”. (Google it!)


An Evening of Sailing, is typically 3 hours. It is made up of three parts.


1. One hour of lessons in our school building

2. One hour of actual sailing on Fanshawe Lake

3. One hour of social time in the club house. (Doug MacKenzie Hall)


Maximum group size is 24, and a minimum of 12 participants required.

For smaller groups, fees will have to be adjusted.

A minimum of two instructors will be provided, three for larger groups with over 18 participants.

Our calendar is a placeholder. Dates to be confirmed with Sailing School Director: please email ss.director@fyc.on.ca
