At TISC we're proud of our comprehensice learn to sail course. Taught by certified Sail Canada instructors the CANSail programming means lots of time on the water in a safe, fun and active learning environment, with relatively less time spent in a classroom. Sailors learn the skills and enter into fun and challenging experiences suited to their stage of development. The programming is designed to get - and keep - sailors excited about sailing for life! CANSail is designed to be a set of progressive learn to sail standards focused on providing sailors with a solid foundation of core skills. It allows sailors to learn and progress in any type of boat and consolidates key skills and solid experiences before adding complex skills.
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 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.
Friday Night Racing (FNR) is organized and operated by the four community sailing Clubs -- Mooredale, St. James Town, Toronto Island and Westwood -- together with the Outer Harbour Centreboard Club (“OHCC”).
To ensure that everyone is given a chance to race, skippers are matched with crew by a random draw.

In order to level the playing field, Racing Skippers are not permitted on the course. We'd be very grateful to have them assist with the Race Committee duties.
Boat availability: Boat 'assignment' will ultimately be based on the date/time you sign up for this event. To keep this a fun event, please work with each other to determine who is sailing in which boat. We will have a waitlist for boats in order to compensate for last minute cancellations and the September 8th, J-Town Regatta.
Please note: Race Day #3 takes place the same day as the J-Town Regatta so this will have an affect on which Ovingtons are available.
The Spectacular Summer Series Showdown is a members-only event but please ask your friends and family to join us for a BBQ after the races.
