Prospective Sailors



If you are a current or future McGill student and are interested in joining the team, please fill out our Prospective Sailors Questionnaire. We are also happy to answer any questions via email or Facebook, or we can arrange for you to meet with one of our sailors!


2022 Info Session

Date: August 25th 7:00pm

Location: Online


Each year we hold an info session before tryouts, providing prospective sailors with a chance to meet the executive committee, learn more about the team (structure, inner workings, culture), and get more information about the tryouts. We highly recommend everyone to attend who is at all interested in the team and we will be available to answer all your questions at that time.


2022 Season Tryouts

Dates: September 2nd-4th

Location: Royal St. Lawrence Yacht Club, 1350 Chemin Bord-du-Lac, Dorval, QC H9S 2E3.


3-day long process whereby all prospective sailors will sail around courses either with other prospective sailors or current team members. Each day may also consist of fitness training.
