New to Boating

Welcome to Sailing & Power Boating!

Your local Yacht and Sailing Club is your best resource to learn all about boating opportunities in your area. From lessons to social events to opportunities to get out on the water, they are your best resource.

Sail Nova Scotia can also assist and feel free to contact us at anytime for more information.

Discover Boating is a Canadian Organization that focuses on increasing participation and creating interest in recreational boating. Each year over ten million people in Canada enjoy boating, the recreational activity that “connects like no other”.
The Discover Boating Website is an excellent resource to learn all about the different types of boats and where you can get out on the water. It is translated in French and Chinese.

The Canadian Safe Boating Council hosts a number of great video resources on their Smart Boater website.

We think of Sail Nova Scotia as a “mentor”. We can always count on Sail Nova Scotia for advice, information, support, or simply an opportunity to network with other yacht clubs
