Junior Squadron Program  
 

Wet Feet , CANSail I, II, III, IV and V courses. Learning to sail will provide a life time of enjoyment anywhere your child's life takes them. Independance, confidence, team work. Nothing quite like it.

The Program:

The Junior Squadron sailing program is designed to teach the safe and proper handling of a small sailboat.Juniors are taught the theory and techniques as outlined by Sail Canada (C.Y.A.) with as much practice time on the water as possible, weather permitting. While on the water, the juniors will be supervised by our Sail Canada approved instructors, from power rescue boats. The students will be taught and tested on the CANSail “learn to sail” standards starting with Cansail 1 through to Cansail VI. Once the fundamentals have been mastered, the more advanced students will be introduced to small boat racing.
