Our instructors are nationally certified through Sail Canada and trained in how to teach sailing, as well as first aid and boat rescue. We follow the Sail Canada CANSail curriculum of instruction. During November, when it is too dark to sail we will work on theory to achieve our CANSail levels, fitness to improve our athleticism, and maintenance to help everyone take care of their boats.
You are not required to work for DND nor be a member of CFSA to take part in our Fall Race Team program, but you will probably find that you enjoy sailing so much that you will want to join and benefit from the perks of membership!
