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.

Upcoming Spring Cruise 2022

Join us from May 4th – May13th, 2022 for cruising around Canada’s beautiful Pacific Northwest, beginning in Nanaimo. Contact Stan Heard at for more information.
