CYA/ASA Sailing Instructor

Hi, my name is Leslie (Les) Legg and I am a sailing instructor with the  Canadian Yachting Association (CYA) and the American Sailing Association (ASA).

CYA & ASA Sailing Instructor - Les
CYA & ASA Sailing Instructor – Les

I learned to sail when I was 15 years old and have been sailing ever since. Over the years, my love for sailing has been transformed into a love of sailing and teaching.

My objective is to make sailing fun, safe and understandable. Lessons are tailored to individual skill levels so if you have never stepped on a boat before, don’t let that stop you from learning to sail.

I use the guided discovery method of teaching – you learn from doing, but more importantly, you learn why you are doing it.

Join me and awaken your senses to all that is sailing!
