CANSail Courses
NOSA’s CANSail 1 lessons will introduce you to basics of sailing a two person dinghy and provide you with the foundations, like terminology, wind reading, and rigging your boat and boat handling. 

CANSail 2 courses will provide you with the basics to enable you to safely navigate a small dinghy as crew and as skipper. Graduates of CANSail 2 programs meet the minimum prerequisites to rent and skipper dinghies from most Sail Canada member sailing clubs across Canada including NOSA’s Boat-share program.

CANSail 3 and 4 classes will improve your sailing skills, sail efficiently and upon achieving CANSail 4 level you qualify for further training for instructor or coach with BC Sailing or Sail Canada.

There is just so much to do, we can barely fit in all in one summer! Remember, these operate all summer long. The whole summer plan includes a variety of activities centered around sailing. Each week something new will happen! Be sure to book early for one, two or more week sessions.
