Boats Raced at the Glenmore Sailing Club

These are the one-design and mixed fleets we race.

Members can join the Club's Co-op Boat Program to sail the club's boats.

  San Juan 21

SanJuan 21 Fleet website

The SanJuan 21 fleet in Calgary is the largest in North America. This is the most active fleet at Glenmore racing main, jib, and spinnaker typically sailed by a crew of three or four. The Club owns six Co-op SJ21s.

These trailerable keelboats weigh approx. 1,400 pounds and are easily towed to and sailed on other lakes.

For the recreational sailor, these are easily launched and the large cockpit comfortably seats 6 or eight adults for an afternoon or evening sail.

   Fireball The Fireball is a one-design high-performance sailing dinghy sailed by a crew of two with a trapeze and spinnaker.

The Glenmore Sailing Club has produced North American and Canadian champions.
   420 The 420 sailboat is one of the most versatile training and program boats in North America. Across Canada and the USA the boats are used by more than 200 post-secondary sailing programs, sailing schools and sailing clubs of all sizes.

The 420 is the boat people sail to transition from single-handed sailing to double-handed sailing. The 420 enables sailors to develop skills with trapeze and spinnaker before progressing to the 29er (youth) or Fireball (adult).
The Laser is one of the most popular single-handed dinghies in the world. The design of this boat emphasizes simplicity and performance.

With three sail sizes - Full, Radial and 4.7 there is a sail for all wind conditions, sailor size and experience.

The Glenmore Sailing Club has produced several top ranking Laser sailors at provincial, national and international competitions.
The most popular sailboat for youth, the Optimist is easy to learn and sail, even for the youngest child.

The Optimist is a small, single-handed sailing dinghy intended for use by children up to the age of 15.

Smaller and younger children sometimes "buddy up" with one child steering and one controling the sail, but typically the boat is sailed individually.

This is a great sailboat for youth to gain confidence, develop and improve skills.

   Martin 16
The Martin 16 is a breakthrough in small boat design. The weighted keel makes it a very safe boat for people with severe disabilities. These boats are very stable and trailer launching is simple.

The inherent stability of the boat, along with the adjustable seating and specialized control systems make the Martin 16 truly accessible to all physically challenged sailors. It is also a lively performance boat for able bodied sailors, this promotes the goal of integrated sailing for recreation and competition.
   X-Class Keelboat
 X-Class Dinghy

If you bring your own boat and it's not listed here, there is still a place for you to race.
