CANSail 1/2

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!

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. 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.

    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.
