FACS Cruising

FACS organizes one or two flotilla sailing cruises per year. The annual spring cruise is a chance for winter-locked Alberta sailors to get a jump on the season each spring. Some years, a second trip has been scheduled for mid-summer for those who prefer to wait for a warmer cruising experience. These trips are great fun.

Contact our Cruising Director for more information.
