NOSA Title


Looking for a great summer adventure? Then add sailing into your schedule this summer!

The North Okanagan Sailing Association (NOSA) will be providing three distinct programs for 2017.

Adult Courses are designed to provide the opportunity to gain valuable sailing skills in a manageable time frame for working participants, running weekeday evenings and over the weekend.

Youth Programs give kids of all ages an opportunity to build real sailing skills and on-water finesse in a fun and engaging environment in courses from three to ten days in length. New for this season we are introducing semester programs for Youth and Adults in three different, two month-long sessions. Having terms allows students to gain significantly more on water instruction and practice. Thinking about racing some regattas or simply honing your on water skills? These semester programs are the ticket!

CANSail Courses

NOSA’s CANSail 1 lessons will introduce you to basics of sailing a two person dinghy and provide you with the foundations for terminology, wind reading, and rigging your boat. CANSail 2 courses will provide you with the basics to enable you to safely navigate a small dinghy as crew and eventually as a skipper. Graduates of CANSail 2 programs meet the minimum prerequisites to rent and skipper dinghies from most Sail Canada member sail clubs across Canada including NOSA. This is your gateway to solo sailing in our fantastic Boatshare fleet! For information on our CANSail 3 and 4 courses please review the below links.
