2012 marks the launch of CANSail Dinghy Programming being offered at sailing and yacht clubs across Canada!

CANSail is..... updated learn-to-sail standards and program delivery support
CANSail Dinghy programming offers learn-to-sail programming delivered to meet updated national standards. CANSail takes the best of the CYA's traditional 'White Sail' programming and aligns it into a progressive pathway of dinghy sailboat handling skills' learning and development. It sets the foundation for athlete and sailor-leadership development regardless of the type of dinghy being used (single or double handed), all in a fun, safe and active learning environment. A sailor in the CANSail programming develops through 6 fundamental levels of standard.
