“Joining Discovery Sailing club has been a no brainer. I meet with super friendly and experienced club members, they showed me my way around the club and went out sailing with a senior member for a test. And off I was sailing. My teenage boys were also welcome, and the family membership affordable. A night and day experience, in comparison to other club who were either 19+ only, or/and were requiring me to take expensive training course despite my extensive experience” -Alain
“I had never used a sailboat in my life, but I had always wanted to learn. I joined DSC and within less than a month I had been out on the water twice with a more experienced club member and I was signing up for a class. By the end of the season I was able to skipper a dinghy and the kayaks on my own!” -Layla
“I had just completed my basic training in keelboat cruising and I was looking for an affordable way to build my sailing skills and get out on the water. DSC proved the easiest and best-priced way to skipper a keelboat, with the added bonus that the club has become a great social outlet and community for me!” -Ben
