2021 Adult Dinghy Update
Per new COVID-19 regulations we are now accepting both pair and solo registrations for the adult dinghy programming. 

Beginner Course

No Membership Required

Over four weeks, learn to sail a small responsive boat. In our beginner level program, our Sail Canada certified instructor will introduce you to key sailing concepts: balance, propulsion and direction at a CANSail 1 and 2 level. National Yacht Club proudly offers this program in our fleet of C420s, easy to use, 14-foot instructional sailboats. Whether you’re a beginner or want to brush up on skills from the past, this course will be both challenging and rewarding. Don’t miss the boat, sign up today!

As COVID-19 restrictions have eased, we are now opening registration to participants who do not have a sailing partner to sign up with. We also welcome participants to sign up for the program with a sailing partner from their household who they can sail with exclusively if they prefer.

Please Note: Although theoretical material from both CANSail 1 and CANSail 2 levels is covered during the course, there is no guarantee that participants will achieve both levels.

Intermediate Course

No Membership Required - Prerequisite CANSail 1

Over four weeks, improve your dinghy sailing and seamanship. In our intermediate level program, our Sail Canada certified instructor will build on boat handling, sail theory and terminology taught in CANSail 1 and will introduce more advanced sailing skills such as spinnaker, trapeze and introductory level racing on National Yacht Club’s fleet of C420 dinghies. This program is the natural continuation of our "Beginner" level and perfect for those looking to take their dinghy sailing to the next level and develop a solid foundation in the sport. Participants must have completed CANSail level 1 or be able to demonstrate CANSail 1 level skills in order to register for this program.

Please Note: Although this course covers CANSail 2 and CANSail 3 material, it may be difficult to achieve either level in a single session.
