sailboats in Toronto inner harbourAt 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.

  • Open to members only, limited to 12 students
  • Successful completion of CANSail 2 + a few additional sailing skill demonstration + boat repairs gives you a TISC Helms status
  • Certificates are awarded by Sail Canada
  • Tuition is $160.00 + HST (while all sales are final for courses, if TISC is unable to run the course due to COVID-19 we will provide a full refund)
  • Start times indicate the tender departure times students must take to the island
  • Dates are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances, such as inclement weather. Whenever possible in these cases, on-land instruction will be substituted
  • Makeup dates for this course are Sunday, August 23 and Monday, August 24 - subject to change

Due to the unique pandemic situation this year, we will ask you to pair with another student and sail exclusively with them for the duration of the course in order to minimize unnecessary contact with multiple people. This can be done on the first day of the course. Please contact if you have any questions.
