This adult course will concentrate on the nationally recognized CANSail 1 & 2 program (previously White Sail I, II, & III). This is a basic sailing course for new sailors or those who wish to continue gaining knowledge and experience. Sailors with previous experience and/or having attained their level 1 & 2 are also welcome, instructors are certified to teach up to CANSail 3 & 4.
You will learn the basic elements of sailing theory (parts of the boat, points of sail, etc.) and on-water skills (safety, crewing, steering, and seamanship). With an experienced Sail Canada CANSail instructor as your coach, you will master the skills and knowledge required to safely sail a dinghy in moderate wind and sea conditions.
Sailors are introduced to the sport and learn the fundamentals while sailing in 420s; these 14-foot instructional sailboats are responsive, fast, exciting and a great work-out.
