Learn to Cruise
The learn to Cruise program is for adults who want to learn how to sail and handle a cruising keelboat safely. A keelboat is a larger sail boat with a weighted keel and overnight accommodation. Three five-day live aboard courses are taught by a Sail Canada (CYA) Advanced Instructor and lead to Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Cruising qualifications recognized worldwide by charter companies and boating associations.
The Basic course will teach you how to handle a cruising boat safely under power and sail in moderate conditions.
The Intermediate course is designed for those who want to charter or purchase a keelboat and includes more navigation aspects as well as improved sailing skills.
The Advanced course includes continuous day and night sailing and navigation in any weather conditions, man overboard at night, docking under sail and other advanced sailing skills.
Courses are run by Wavelength Sailing School in co-operation with Collins Bay Yacht Club.
