After 18 months of, working with World Sailing to review the CANSaill program against the World Sailing Training Standards, Sail Canada is proud to announce that its CANSail programming is now a “Recognized Training Program” by World Sailing.

 

The CANSail program is now recognized as one of 14 programs in the world meeting the World Sailing Standards along with the Royal Yachting Association, Australian Sailing, and the New Zealand Yachting Association.

 

The accreditation is a recognition of the systematic approach of the CANSail program that  introduces youth to the sport of sailing and continues them on the athlete pathway to international performance. It is a tribute to the hard work of the Sail Canada CANSail Panel in creating a world recognized training program that is amongst the best in the world.
