The Royal Western Nova Scotia Yacht Club is always looking for new club members and crew. Every Wednesday at 6pm and Sunday at 2pm from May through to September they hold their races. Just show up about 45 minutes beforehand at the Digby Marina (only a 5 minute walk from the hostel) and you can join them for a race as crew member. You do not need to be an experienced sailor, just be ready to get active!

There is no charge, although I am sure any captain of any sailboat would be happy with a drink afterwards ;-)
