This is the official event sign-up for those Skippers & Sr. Helms who expressed interest in the one and a half day training course led by a Certified Sail Canada Learning Facilitator.
This is the abbreviated version of the course used to train candidates trying to become instructors within the CANSail certification system which is the Provincial and National standard. There are checklists and rubrics of skills divided into 6 levels. These levels are what Canadian coaches use across the board. Instructors needing to evaluate and certify these levels must complete a 2-weekend CANSail Instructor Clinic for the appropriate level.
Our sessions will be a crash course in this system with some good take home points and techniques. It will hopefully make us all better coaches and help standardize our system so that we can move our members through the ranks and help them develop sailing skills.
The majority of the cost will be absorbed by our club working within our budget parameters for this year. Unfortunately we will not be able to cover the entire cost so all participants will need to pay $8.85 + HST for the sessions. Please be advised that you must be a fully paid 2019 Sailing Member before Apr. 28, 2019 in order to participate in this course.
Please register and pay for the training sessions by April 26, 2019 in order to participate. Inform us if you are only able to attend a portion of the sessions. Unfortunately, regardless of your availability, the price does not change. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com

At TISC we're proud of our comprehensive 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 maneuvers in a controlled manner while in a controlled setting.
