Mile Building is an ideal program designed for sailors who are eager to build their sailing skills and gain confidence over time on the water. By joining our community of passionate sailors, you will be able to share your love of the ocean with others, learn and grow together.
We currently offer a Mile Building Program on Lake Ontario, which is widely recognized as a world-class sailing destination. Its vast size, diverse coastline, and varied winds provide an exceptional experience for sailors. The pristine waters of Lake Ontario have hosted numerous international regattas, and its sailing communities are among the most active and passionate in the world.
Whether you’re looking to build up your nearshore mileage, practice your racing techniques, or explore new sailing areas, our Mile Building Program is perfect for you. With this program, you’ll have the opportunity to gain more experience and hone your skills while being surrounded by a supportive community of fellow sailors.
Prior to the commencement of the trip, you will have the chance to discuss your sailing experience and the sailing plan with the captain. Our journey will begin at the stunning Bluffers Park Marina, from where we will set sail. Our itinerary is designed to be flexible, allowing you to customize your journey to your unique needs and goals.
Throughout the trip, you will have ample opportunities to practice a wide range of sailing techniques in varying weather and wind conditions. You’ll learn essential maneuvers such as tacking, gybing, reefing, anchoring, heaving-to, crew overboard techniques, and many others.
You’ll practice on our well-rigged and fully equipped 30-foot sailboat, providing an ideal platform for learning with all the necessary sails at your disposal. The program is led by a licensed captain who is also a Sail Canada certified instructor. With his expertise and guidance, you’ll gain valuable experience in navigation, seamanship, and boat handling, improving your overall sailing skills.
Additionally, apart from exploring the iconic Scarborough Bluffs, we also offer options to sail to the Toronto Islands, Oakville, crossing to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Prince Edward County, and Thousand Islands. These diverse locations offer the perfect opportunity to discover new sailing areas and further enhance your sailing resume.
