Learn more about this eco-friendly recreation on beautiful Lake Nipissing. We’re located at the North Bay Waterfront near Memorial Drive.
The Blue Sky Sailing Club is not a yacht club. You don’t need a sailboat to join. You can learn to skipper, join a crew and enjoy sailing opportunities and social events through the year on the club’s owned boats.
The club has acquired a Hunter 26 named Artemis that went into service at the end of the 2017 season. She provides great accommodation and a retractable centreboard so that she is well suited to cruising and overnighting.
The sailing club is for area residents and visitors alike who want to learn to sail or share their knowledge with others who love being on the water, powered by wind. See the promotional video below.
We have boats available for rent to qualifying members, offer social sails five times a week and have events throughout the year.
If you don’t own a sailboat, or you want to improve your sailing skills, we can help. We give one-on-one on the water instruction and offer formal courses. See “Lessons” in the menu for details.
We’re also friendly to the environment, using the wind without creating noise and pollution, and we only using fuel to get in and out of the North Bay marina.
Sailing teaches teamwork, water safety and respect for the weather. The club hosts a weather station for accurate readings on the east end of Lake Nipissing.
Teach your kids a skill they can use for the rest of their life: Self reliance.
