CANSail 1 & 2 classes are for newcomers to sailing. Participants progress through these two levels as they build their fundamental knowledge, skill, and confidence. Time is divided between on-the-water lessons and land-based instruction on theory, parts of the boat, knots, weather and safety on the water. On the water, the focus is on basic, practical boat-handling skills and seamanship.
Sailors in these levels will be sailing in the Topaz, the Argo, and Optis.
Sailing is not just about learning the skills – we recognize that having fun and making new friends is what summer is all about. Each class is 2 weeks in duration.
