Have you always wanted to become a competent skipper or crew? The Basic Cruising course is for you!
This course is taught over 2 weekends or 8 evenings on our flagship vessel Spindrift. This course will provide you with a solid sailing foundation. You will learn about sail trim, boat parts, seamanship skills, emergency situations, anchoring, helming and so much more!
Students who are proficient by the end of the course as both skipper and crew will receive the Sail Canada Basic Cruising Standard. Students who are more comfortable helping out as crew will receive the Basic Crew Standard.
