All participants in our marine programs are provided with a Personal Floatation Device (PFD). Proper use of the PFD is strictly enforced. Participants are welcome to use their own Canadian approved PFDs if they have them.
A sailing camp resource guide with more information will be available prior to the start of camp.
Intro to Cruising
Designed for aspiring sailors, this introduction to the exciting world of sailing and cruising is pitched to the older campers.
Under the supervision of our experienced Sail Canada instructors, participants will gain confidence on the water while safely cruising around the Toronto Harbour and Islands aboard one of our J-24’s and Sonar keelboats. From mastering boat controls, racing on the harbour, to geocache treasure hunts via boat around the bay, the experience is limited only by a young camper's imagination.
Sailors will gain plenty of practical hands-on experience while developing basic sailing skills and being introduced to cruising and confidence around others in a team environment.
Day 1 and 2 – Safety and equipment, wind awareness and parts of the boat.
Day 3 and 4 – Practice sailing skills, tack around a figure-eight and exploration.
Day 5 – Island Day, and putting it all into practice.
