Hello,

I am new to sailing. I would like to learn. Can anyone suggest a good place to start in the west island area of Montreal.

Thanks,
Fryar

jackdale will become famous soon enough
You might try the Canadian Yachting Association web site. They have a listing of schools in Quebec.

LAkeshore road

There is a public sailing club right on Lakeshore road called Venture Sailing club. It is associated with Pointe Claire, so it should be less expensive than joining a yacht club at this point.
Their website is:
http://venture-sailing.org/

Not aware of any other places other than the private clubs. I am sure there are a few out there though.

You didn't mention what type of skills you would like to acquire, if you want very good practical courses, that ranges from learning to sail to 3 weeks stages, you can check out: Formation
Bonne chance
