RYC has adopted the CANSail program. In addition, 420 boats will be supplied by the club for CANSail 5&6 or you may bring your own dinghy.

Sailors and Parents

CANSail means more time on the water, and sailors have more fun and learn skills that match their age and development stage. CANSail is designed to get sailors excited about sailing and promote sailing as a lifelong sport. It focuses on core skills that are developed throughout the 6 levels that allow sailors to progress in any type of boat.

Coaches and Instructors

Every current and trained coach has taken an online CANSail module as well as participated in a 1/2 day clinic.

To all those interested in sailing schools, here's a list of essential items you'll need to participate in any of the schools this summer.

Sailing is a great sport - it breeds confidence, develops personal skills, is very affordable, and is open to any child age 7 and over. So...are you or your children interested in being part of our plans for this year? If you are, you'll find all the details you need on our Application Information page.

If you require any additional information, or have comments or complaints, please contact Margot Grant at margotg3@gmail.com.
