We do our best to fit similar experience levels together. However, we sail to the conditions which means
on any given day there are many opportunities to learn and practice various skills.
Students are encouraged to be hands on and are instructed to do so in a safe manner.
Clear communication & teamwork allow for a relaxed & fun learning environment.
Skills practiced are as follows:
Basics of Boat Handling under Power & Sail. Introduction to Navigation at sea. Safe Seamanship.
Points of Sail, Reefing, Heaving to, Sail trim, flying Spinnakers, Docking, Anchoring & Mooring Buoys.
Squamish benefits from very consistent Wind. It is often strong in the Harbour & lighter as we head south.
This allows us to sail in a wide range of conditions. We often reef our sails to maintain boat speed & comfort.
The waves are typically not large enough to cause seasickness.
A good level of physical fitness is an asset but not essential. Please contact us with concerns.
