|Welcome to the Alberta Offshore Sailing Association
(AOSA) of Edmonton,
Alberta. We represent
northern Alberta sailors who operate a cruising sailboat or power boat equipped
with a watertight hatch, a self-draining cockpit, galley, bunks and overnight sleeping
accommodations in a cabin. The goal of the AOSA is to improve cruiser sailing in
Alberta through education and by liaising with existing and prospective yacht
clubs and related associations. This web site and distribution list serves our communication
needs. Click here to read AOSA history.
- Sailors attend
monthly meetings during the winter to share knowledge and
experiences. Each meeting focuses on a particular subject with a feature
speaker invited. The subject matter alternates between technical and
cruising so there is something of interest for everyone. The meeting
is usually preceded with a lively discussion over grog.
- We maintain a
distribution list to keep sailors abreast of events and to
send notifications of monthly meetings.
- The news
is posted on this web site, as it happens, and are notified via the distribution
- The AOSA will host a
nautical garage sale each winter
when the need is there and a location permits.

on Wabamun Lake.

installed four registered cardinal buoys to mark hazards on Wabamun Lake with code illuminated

laminated chart of Wabamun Lake with
GPS coordinates listing the cardinal buoys and other features around the lake.
