Sailing School Registration is Online

New for this season, the Conestoga Sailing School will be accepting on-line registrations via the registration page on our website. The sailing club has partnered with pay-pal to enable students and members to securely purchase sailing lessons with a credit card or a pay-pal account. The paper registration forms are also still available for anyone wishing to pay with a cheque as in past seasons. On-line Registration will be open until 2 days before the start of a sailing school session. If you would like to register after on-line registration is closed please email and call the club between 9:00AM and 4:00PM The goal of the on-line registration pages is to make registration more convenient for our students and free up our volunteer hours for other projects. The sailing club and sailing school registration is run by 100% volunteer effort.
