CANSail 1/2

For formal basic sailing training, CANSail 1/2 introduces novice members to boat handling, the different points of sail, and other basic sailing skills. Mastery of this course will give you what you need to move from Novice to Helms! See below for the 2023 schedule. Registration opens in the Spring, this course sells out fast!


CANSail 3/4

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. A student in CANSail 3/4 must have already passed CANSail 1/2. See below for the 2023 schedule. Registration opens in the Spring.


CANSail 5/6

For formal advanced sailing training, we offer CANSail 5/6, which fully integrates boat handling, sail trim, and rig setup with racing. Sailors train to perform all skills within a competitive race setting in order to achieve accurate sailing within a regatta and in all conditions. A student in CANSail 5/6 must have already passed CANSail 4 or have equivalent sailing skills. The 2023 schedule will be coming soon!
