Our boat of choice is the Albacore. It is a forgiving boat, which makes it perfect to learn the basics of sailing. Its simple design makes it a great boat to learn how to adjust jib and main sails, centerboard and other elements to make the boat faster. But it's also fast and flexible, making it an outstanding racing boat. We also think it rather pretty!

We have 14 Albacore sail boats accessible to all members.
Fast and quick to maneuver, Albacores are good to learn on, difficult to master, and equitable for various crew weights. 

They have actually been designed to sail the English channel, notorious for its rough weather conditions. Its small size facilitates the communication between the helm and crew allowing strategy and tactics development an extremely fun experience during social or high level races. Finally, one of the most fun part of sailing an Albacore is the hiking part. When sailing into the wind, the sailors can hike on the side of the hull to counter balance the force of the wind pushing against the sails.

Our club has one of the largest and most recent Albacore fleets in Canada. Check out our Canadian Albacore Association's website for pictures, info about upcoming events. Members have access to our 13 Albacores, as well as 5 Lasers, 2 Catamarans. To ensure the safety of our members and supervise training sessions, and racing events, we also have three motor boats. 

Bring your friends for a ride!

Our Hobie Catamarans are perfect for leisure sailing and invite your non-sailor friends for a ride (cf. club policies). It holds up to six people and allows for a nice and relaxing sail on the lake. 

Looking for thrills?

Don’t get fooled by its size, the Albacore will give you plenty of excitement. After less than a season of sailing at Mooredale, you should be able to participate in the major racing events and you will get the dose of adrenaline you are looking for.
