2021 Adult Keelboat Update - Registration Opening Soon!

To facilitate physical distancing for COVID-19 our 2021 keelboat courses will be offered in a semi-private format to reduce class size. Additionally, several COVID-19 protocols have been implemented, which include the requirement of wearing a facial covering and completion of daily screening form.

Basic Cruising Course

Semi-Private Lessons

Learn to crew and skipper a keelboat in our 28-hour comprehensive course, designed to build comfort and introduce key concepts to first-time sailors. In this course you will develop the skills needed to sail on coastal waterways and charter boats in vacation destinations.

In 2020 we will be offering the course in a semi-private format, with a maximum of 2 students per instructor. This format allows for physical distancing with the added value of increased one-on-one time with your instructor and more direct boat handling time for each student.

Basic Cruising Course materials included. Upon successful completion you will be awarded Sail Canada’s Basic Cruising Standard or the Basic Crew Standard.
