Congratulations to our first 2022 class of new sailors
It has been 3 years since we have been able to do a full size sailing class within the Ontario pandemic rules/guidelines. Big congratulations to our new sailors. Lots of great sailing, many excellent dinners and an amazing 100% CANSail 2 pass rate.
"I couldn't imagine how this experience could be any better"
"This course has totally exceeded my expectations"
Massive thank you to our head instructor LJ (middle) and all our community instructors.

Your first season as a new sailor at Mooredale
Sign up for lessons
Find the set of lessons that work for your schedule and sign up early (we do sell out every year).
Explore sailing in a small class of fellow adult future sailors with expert tuition.
Class format is usually a short briefing with objectives and then it is out on the water. Two students per boat. There is always coach boat supervision and guidance on the water.
After your lessons
Once you pass your Cansail 2 class then the Albacores boats are available to you to take out as much as you want.
Come down for dinner and a leisure sail with other members on a Wednesday night.
Enjoy the festivities of regattas, help host a Friday night race (no experience required) or just go for a sail with a friend and have a bbq.
Continue on your sailing enjoyment and learning journey.
Join the free Monday night training sessions.
Crew for a Friday night race or even a harbour master on a Sunday and start experiencing the racing side of sailing.
End of the season
Congratulations you have completed your first season as a sailor.
We finish off the season with our Baby Duck Regatta in early September. This is where new sailors (no more than 2 years sailing) get a chance to have a fun race with other classes and other clubs.
This is always a highlight of the year for our new sailors and is great fun.
