Subject: Sail like a Canadian in Grenada

It has been said that the best thing about Canada  is leaving it in the winter. Even though we rarely admit to that 'W' word in the boating biz (we roll from fall to spring), there are a few times when getting outta here is a great idea.  If you've started your sailing and need to continue with a warm water fix, we're running courses on a Jeanneau SunFast 52 out of Grenada with Scott Watson, a great instructor who migrates south this time of year to sail in the second best place on earth.
Two distinct programs - CYA Intermediate and Caribbean Regattas

Contact us today for more details or to book.  Need to know how to sail like a Canadian in Grenada? - wear a toque, talk lots about the weather and handle the boat in style. 

Can't make it?  Scott is back here sailing with Cooper students this summer in the best place on earth (BC of course!)

Subject: START HERE - New Friendly Schedule & Modular Format

To compliment the friendly instructors we have around here, we've re-organized the courses into a modular format to allow people with busy lives to get this great pastime into their lives and ensure the sailing classes meet student objectives.  Surrounding the basic level for new sailors is three core modules - CREW, BAY SKIPPER and CRUISING NUTS & BOLTS.  If you would like the well rounded, cover all the bases approach, take all three modules.  If you are looking to sail smaller keelboats (perhaps with our sailing club - the JIB SET - you can take the CREW module and start crewing on the 24 footers - putting your new skills into practice and having a lot of fun with the great group of people in our club.

Progress to the BAY SKIPPER level when you are keen to take things up a level and be comfortable in command of these great pocket cruisers -

Looking to crew on larger boats, take the CREW module followed by the CRUISING NUTS & BOLTS weekend.

Skippering these boats is best done with the BAY SKIPPER module in English Bay before the CRUISING NUTS & BOLTS weekend to Gibson's on the Sunshine Coast.

None of these modules is over one week in duration and can fit into a busy work schedule.  Need any help - our office is open daily and ready to assist.
