Our affordable CANSail 1/2 and 3/4 courses as well as our Midweek Social Sailing program — unique to our club — prepare you to be out on the water quickly and safely. Our education program, approved by Sail Canada, gives members access to certified instructors. CANSail is internationally recognized in the world of sailing. We combine CANSail 1 & 2 into one course to give you more knowledge as well as bang for your buck. The same applies to CANSail levels 3 & 4.
For formal basic sailing training, CANSail 1/2, a single course combining CANSail levels 1&2 lessons, introduces novice members to boat handling, the different points of sail, and other basic skills. Mastery of this course will give you what you need to move from Novice to Helms!
New this year, each CANSail session includes 8 classes, up from the 5 offered in previous years, so you'll gain even more experience.
For formal intermediate sailing training, we offer CANSail 3/4, in which the finer points of sail trim and specialized skills like rudderless sailing and roll tacking are mastered. With this course under your belt you'll be ready to try the Skippers test.
Like CANSail 1/2, CANSail 3/4 are combined and offered over an 8 week period.
A student in CANSail 3/4 must have already passed CANSail 1/2.
