With a history of producing top Canadian Youth Sailors the RNSYS Race Team programs offer a full season of high-performance sailing programs in many classes. They are introducing hydrofoiling water sports lessons and demos taking place this summer in Halifax, NS at the RNSYS Canadian Foiling Academy.

Introduction to Foiling Camp and Foiling Demos will be available in July and August. The RNSYS is primarily a sailing club and it is our goal to encourage and enhance the sport of sailing and foiling.

The Squadron is home to close to 900 members from Canada, the United States, and international regions, and is proud to offer instructional programs and on-water activities for all ages, with the largest learn to sail program in Atlantic Canada. We also offer state-of-the-art facilities and support for disabled sailing.
