For formal basic sailing training, CANSail 1/2, a single course combining CANSail levels 1&2 lessons, introduces novice members to boat handling, the different points of sail, and other basic skills. Mastery of this course will give you what you need to move from Novice to Helms!
For formal intermediate sailing training, we offer CANSail 3/4, in which the finer points of sail trim and specialized skills like rudderless sailing and roll tacking are mastered. With this course under your belt you'll be ready to try the Skippers test. Like CANSail 1/2, CANSail 3/4 are combined and offered over an 8 week period. A student in CANSail 3/4 must have already passed CANSail 1/2.
