REGISTER Cansail 1 – Introduction to sailing which teaches sailors fundamental sailing skills, such as sheeting, steering and boat handling on all points of sail. Sailors can sail within defined boundaries set by an instructor.

REGISTER Cansail 2 – this level teaches sailors to adjust their bodies and boats for changes in direction and wind speed, while sailing, and to perform boat handling maneuvers in a controlled manner.

REGISTER Cansail 3 – Intermediate sailing -teaches sailors to integrate their fundamental boat handling maneuvers and balance with basic tactics and strategy, as well as apply sail trim. Sailors are exposed to a greater variety of conditions and participate in a club race or training camp.

REGISTER Cansail 4 – Advanced Sailing – teaches sailors to perform advanced boat handling maneuvers in a variety of conditions. Sailors can successfully execute maneuvers in competitive settings and for tactical and strategic purposes. Sailors participate in a one to two day regatta.

Introduction to Sailing, where the participant (up to 3 adult participants in the boat) will be taken out by an experienced sailor and “shown the ropes”. Cost and time on the water – please enquire
