ADULT BASIC CRUISING:

Welcome to our Adult Basic Cruising sessions. We look forward to helping you get closer to your cruising or sailing dreams.

We follow a modified ‘Sail Canada’ curriculum and teach safety, navigation and boat-handling skills. You will learn to ‘day sail’ in moderate wind and sea conditions.

Your experience is delivered by Sail Canada certified cruising instructors and limited to a max of 4 students per instructor. This hands-on course will prepare you to safely captain with a small crew in your boat or a Club boat. You’ll learn fundamental skills and theory comparable to a Sail Canada Basic Cruising Standard. These skills include but are not limited to:

  • Boat handling under sail & power
  • Terminology
  • Safety equipment and procedures
  • Understanding weather
  • Basic navigation and chart work
  • Anchoring and docking under power
  • Reefing
  • Knots
  • Rules of the road
  • Crew-Overboard procedures
