All courses are taught using boats called International 420’s, which are 4 meters, 20 centimeters long. The focus of the program is to teach individuals to become competent sailors who may continue to develop as personal boat owners, use club boats at member clubs, crew with others, or, with further training, become members of the Provincial Race Team.

Instructors are Sail Canada nationally certified.

Participants will learn the basics of balance, direction, propulsion, as well as rigging and launching. The course provides instruction on safety and seamanship.

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT: Participants are required to wear Personal Flotation Devices (PFD’s or life jackets) at all times on the water. Please bring your own. Rubber-soled or running shoes are good footwear to protect your feet. Remember, it may be cooler on the water. A wet suit, if you own one, will ensure your warmth on the water. Also bring extra clothing and shoes to get dry after sailing. A nylon shell jacket is a good idea.
