Sure Winds Sailing

Welcome to Sure Winds Sailing! We are located on the north shore of Lake Erie in beautiful Erieau, Ontario, 20 minutes south of Chatham. We at SWS offer two exciting sailing adventures aboard “Swiftsure” a San Juan 30’ sloop that was designed for easy handling and comfort.
First have you ever wanted to sit back and enjoy a few hours basking in the sun as the sails full of wind whisk you over the water? Is it on your bucket list to spend the day sailing with your sweetheart? We offer morning and afternoon day charters for 1 to 3 people for up to 4 hours. Let your skipper and host Pete Pownall safely sail you around the waters of the north shore Lake Erie while you relax and let the stress of your week slip into the wind.
We also offer private sailing lessons. (Minors must be accompanied by an adult). No previous experience necessary! This course is also appropriate for those who have some experience, but are not comfortable sailing on their own. From beginner to advanced. Your Skipper and Instructor Pete Pownall will guide you through all aspects of seamanship, safety and operation. We strongly suggest 3-4 days of instruction. We require that students practice a particular drill many times over and when a class stretches out over 3-4 days, chances are they will perform that training drill in different weather conditions which furthers the experience. Instruction will include:
•Points of sail
•Tacking and gybing
•Sail shape & trim
•Seamanship skills, including:
– Reefing
– Heaving-To
– Crew-Overboard Recovery
– Docking Under Sail
– Anchoring
– Mooring
•Sailing dynamics
•Yacht design essentials
•Reading the wind
•Safety practices and equipment
•Tides and currents
•Basic navigation
•Rules of the road
Day Charter (4hrs.) $250.00
Lessons (per day 3hrs.) $275.00

Welcome to Sure Winds Sailing! We offer lessons and 1/2 day sails on beautiful Lake Erie- just an hour from London in Erieau, Ontario.
