This is a basic sailing course for new sailors or those with limited sailing experience. Sailors are introduced to the sport and learn the fundamentals while sailing in Lasers and Pico’s. The course covers the basic elements of sailing theory (parts of the boat, points of sail) and on-water skills in safety, crewing, steering and seamanship. Sailors also learn basic physical literacy through fun activities and sailing games.  As in the Wetfeet Program, the emphasis is on safety, fun and teaching youth sailors to confidently handle a small dinghy.  We recommend a min of 2 weeks of FULL Day classes for CANSail 1 and 3 weeks of FULL Day classes for CANSail 2.  As each student progresses at their own rate it could take longer to attain the level. 

Note: Participants in this program learn the vital Sail Canada safety skill of righting a capsized sailboat, so be prepared to get wet!!

In double-handed 420s, sailors build on existing skills in all types of conditions and to a higher level of proficiency.  Sailors are introduced to concepts such as right of way, reading wind and waves, proper use of sail controls and tactical mark rounding’s.  CANSail 4 participants are introduced to double-handed skills like spinnaker and trapeze, beginning to work towards their Spinnaker and Trapeze Level 1 certification.

This program emphasizes high-performance sailing and basic racing and acts as a foundation for the Racing Team. Because of the more advanced nature of this program, sailors should be attending a min. of 2 weeks, however it is strongly recommend that a four-week Full day commitment is made over the summer.
