Sailing lessons through COSA

Giving youth the opportunity to experience the unique and challenging sport of sailing with qualified COSA staff. They learn how to operate and enjoy a sailing boat while getting outside their comfort zone and finding similarities to the challenges of everyday life.  Participants get an opportunity to learn and experience the joys of harnessing the wind and cruising across Lake Okanagan with the sun shining down and the splash of the lake on their faces.  Starting with the foundations of sailing participants will learn how to skipper their own boat and sail with confidence.  Harness your inner pirate and come join us to learn to sail!

The program is offered to eligible youth free of charge for Elevation believes that no young person should be denied the potential to discover an outdoor pursuit that can keep them motivated, healthy, and stoked on life for the rest of their days!
