Off the water, instructors teach the points of sail, boat parts, and weather and safety information through games and interactive lessons.   This program emphasizes safety, fun, and learning, and provides ideal preparation for the CANSail 1 & 2.

CANSail 1 teaches sailors the fundamental sailing skills including basic sheeting, steering, and boat handling on all points of sail. Sailors can sail within defined boundaries set by an instructor.

CANSail 2 – Basic sailing. CANSail 2 teaches sailors to adjust their bodies and boats for changes in direction and wind speed while sailing, and to perform boat-handling manoeuvers in a controlled manner while in a controlled setting. 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 may take longer to attain the level.
