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. Either course is great for solo sailors,
couples, friends, and family members alike. If you’re a keelboat sailor looking to improve your knowledge, a
graduate of our junior sailing program, or a parent of a sailing school attendee who wants in on the action, reserve
your spot now! If you are unsure of your skill level or have any general questions regarding the programs please do
not hesitate to contact our sailing school director (email@example.com).
This program is welcome to non-members too!
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. 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.
