michaeldunnIt's a perfectly stable boat that allows you to comfortably and safely learn to sail accompanied by one of our qualified staff members. They'll take you out on beautiful Shediac Bay and teach you all you need to know. The controls are easily accessed from the front seat.

Once you feel confident enough, you can sail the boat on your own but a safety boat will always be nearby.

So give us a call and make an appointment. Our operations for the summer of 2016 began on Wednesday, June 29th.

This initiative is made possible through financial contributions from the Canadian Paralympic Committee and Sport Canada cpc
