Adult Sail program
Our adult learn to sail program uses our fleet of 420 dinghies to provide you with an exciting sailing opportunity! With our experienced CANSail instructors helping you along, dinghy sailing is a great way to learn to sail. Sailing on a dinghy gives you the chance to be active and hands-on with everything happening on the boat. The boat is small, easy to handle and can provide an exciting sailing experience, but that also means you may get a little wet!
Participants in our CANSail program will learn to sail according to Sail Canada’s CANSail standards in a fun and safe environment! No experience is necessary to start in CANSail 1. As sailors progress, they will receive their certifications for each level. Advanced sailors at the CANSail 5/6 levels will have opportunities to race at local and out-of-town regattas! All levels use our fleet of 420 sailing dinghies as it allows for a full experience of the sport
