In an effort to bring sailing to more people across the province, Ontario Sailing equips two complete mobile sailing schools that travel to different locations every summer.  This program known as BOOM is coming to the Port Stanley Sailing Squadron during the week of July 8, 2019.  Each mobile team, consisting of two qualified instructors, delivers Sail Canada’s CANSail 1 & 2 basic sailing levels for students ages 8-14 during the day, as well as adult (ages 15 and up) evening lessons.  The mobile units are equipped with eight learn to sail boats, two coach boats, teaching aids and Lifejackets/PFD’s for all participants.  The children's day program runs from Monday through Friday, 9am – 4pm. The adult class runs from 5:30pm -8:30pm, Monday-Thursday.  

The primary goal of the BOOM Mobile Program is to promote the sport of sailing, with the hope that it is a skill the participants will continue to enjoy throughout their life.
