About Rocky Point Sailing Association
Rocky Point Sailing Association was founded in 1995, branching off from the Centennial Sailing Club, whose members were concentrating on larger cruising and racing sailboats.
RPSA is a 'dinghy' sailing club - small sailboats, generally 18 feet and under. The association owns a fleet of approximately 40 sailboats, which are used and maintained by the club members. The fleet consists of 420s, Lasers and Optimists.
For over 20 years, the association (and its members) have been involved in teaching sailing to youths and adults, as well as hosting competitive racing programs. RPSA has also been responsible for running the SD43 outdoor education program, teaching sailing and canoeing skills to students, as well as a marine biology/ecology program, and water safety programs.
There are currently about 8 certified Sail Canada instructors at the club, running the spring and summer programs. RPSA hosts apporximately 900 school aged participants through its spring programs; 300 youth participants during its summer camps; and 200 participants through its adult programs.
RPSA's Mission Statement:
Rocky Point Sailing Association will strive to provide a safe, inclusive and interactive environment to promote a long-time love of sailing and encourage each sailor's independence.
