Registration

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel summer sailing camps for 2020. We believe this is the socially responsible thing to do and we do not take this measure lightly. The health of our sailors, staff, volunteers and the broader community members is always our priority. We look forward to sailing again in 2021.

Note: Schedule of sessions subject to change depending on number of registrants and instructor availability. Please email gibsonssailing@gmail.com with any questions, or if you want to be on a wait list.
