We offer a variety of corporate sailing programs designed to meet your development or social needs.
We have been hosting corporate events at MacSailing in Vancouver since 2001. Our staff are fully certified and bring many years of experience and knowledge to share with you.
Events can include team sailing gear, media packages and full food & beverage service. We are happy to incorporate aspects of team building/bonding, problem solving, stress relieving or leadership. All of our services can be catered to your company’s needs.
The program emphasizes learning boat control so that paddlers will gain the confidence, skills and knowledge to be safe and have fun. The program starts with knowledge and skills necessary for “beachfront” paddling activities. It progresses to introduce the novice paddler to paddling with a partner and to introduce basic land and water rescue techniques. All groups are accompanied by coaches in the same ‘inflatable’ coach boats used for sailing programs. Small tours around parts of English Bay are included when conditions are suitable.
$35/person (10-24 people, larger groups can be accommodated in shifts)
This three-hour lesson introduces participants to sailing and the sea. Our certified instructors will explain and demonstrate technique, points of sail, steering and balance. Our focus is on-water activities so that people have an opportunity to experience sailing for themselves.

A longer program over a flexible set of dates. Participants can work towards the internationally recognized CANSail Curriculum or a more customized curriculum. We work with numerous companies creating racing teams or recreational sailing clubs. Participants attend weekly sessions and work towards a regatta at the end of the season.
