Sailing Essentials

It’s time for you to discover the exhilaration of sailing! This course is for people who have no prior sailing experience and who have always wanted to try it out. Come out and learn just how fun, and affordable, sailing can be!

What will we do?

For our Sailing Essentials course you will spend two full days out on the water on our flagship Spindrift learning the basics of sailing. This course will cover knots, terminology, boat parts, boat handling and overall basic seamanship skills. A Sail Nelson certificate of completion will be awarded upon completion of this course.

What do we get?

This course is equivalent to the Sail Canada Start Keelboat Sailing course.  Students have the option of purchasing a Sail Canada logbook and course seal for an additional $80 +GST. Students will receive a Sail Nelson Certificate of Completion.
