The mission of the Wabamun Sailing Club is “To foster and develop sailing on Lake Wabamun, in the Province of Alberta, and in so doing, provide for the recreation of the members and to promote and afford opportunity for sporting and social gatherings.”
From its humble beginnings as a group of cottage owners with a passion for sailing, the Wabamun Sailing Club has grown to become nationally recognized for its sailors and yachting events.
Sailboat racing has always been the heartbeat of the Club and a variety of dinghies and catamarans, skippered by sailors with all skill levels, compete to win that day’s races as well as monthly and annual awards. Weekend club racing and events, such as the Founders’ and Sailweek Regattas, round out the sailing season. One major regional, provincial or national regatta per season, such as the Provincials, Sail West and Laser Masters, is hosted at the Club most seasons and supported by a talented race management team and a fantastic group of volunteers.
