Our certified Sail Canada instructors provide comprehensive instruction in fundamental sailing skills within a fun and safe environment.

Participants engage in teamwork and leadership activities as they learn both skippering and crewing the boat.

Upon successful demonstration of all skills and completion of the CANSail 1 checklist, participants have the opportunity to obtain Sail Canada certification. The course maintains a ratio of 6 participants to 1 instructor, ensuring personalized attention.
