About Us

Come Sail With Us

The Newell Sailing Club has for more than 40 years provided recreational and competitive sailing for southeastern Alberta sailors. We offer the opportunity for you to learn to sail without having to spend a lot of money and we help you get the experience needed to sail safely. When it comes time to buy your own boat, we help you with information that will make your decision easier. We feel we sail on the best lake for sailing in Alberta with unobstructed shorelines that allow the wind to blow with little variation, wide open spaces with lots of room to sail, plenty of deep water and a good boat launch.

The Club grounds includes a 1000 sq.ft. hall that we use as our clubhouse as well as rent out during the off season for company socials and family get-togethers. The club offers storage for your sailboat or other equipment. Having your sailboat semi-setup minimizes the time required to get on and off the water. We also have a lockable members room for access to lifejackets, fridge, sit on top kayaks for light wind days, barbecue, etc.

We encourage all interested in sailing to come check our club out and visit with our members. For more information email newsletter@newellsailingclub.com.
