S.O.S.A.

South Okanagan Sailing Association

If you are looking for lakeshore to sail or paddle from; a place to meet other sailors/paddlers and have fun racing; a place to put yourself or children in sailing lessons, then we have the place for you: South Okanagan Sailing Association (S.O.S.A.), a jewel of a sailing club in the Okanagan for over 50 years.

Membership is open to anyone and all non-motorized small crafts under 20 feet in length are welcome. That includes dinghys and multi-hull sailboats, kayaks, canoes, row boats, windsurfers and stand up paddle boards. No power boats, keelboats or personal watercraft are allowed to be docked, launched or moored off the club facilities.

We DO NOT have boats for rent.
