Sailing - A Long Time Whistler Tradition
Sailing lessons and races began in Whistler back in the 1980's. At that time, as many as 50 windsurfers and a fleet of Lasers raced weekly on Alta Lake. Whistler Sailing Association was formed in October 2008 in response to strong local interest.
There is nothing quite feeling the power of the wind as you glide across a glacier lake at speeds of up to 15 knots looking up at the ski hills. With an abundance of trained professional and facilities, anyone can get out on the lake and start sailing within minutes.
