CanSail Instructor Programming

Introduced in 2012, the CANSail dinghy program brings a new set of Sailor Standards and new Instructor Training Clinics to sailing programs across Canada. The CANSail program has been developed based on the Long Term Sailor Development framework, and is designed to develop and retain sailors in our sport, develop high performance athletes, teach the skills needed to enjoy sailing as a life long activity, and encourage the support of sailing through a lifetime. This is an exciting new program for sailors, instructors, clubs and sailing schools alike!
