CANSail Technical

May 17 - May 19

$300

The technical clinic is a very hands-on, practical course using the theory learned in the Fundamental course.  There are 3 levels for instructors:

  • CANSail 1 & 2
  • CANSail 3 & 4
  • CANSail 5 & 6

CANSail 3 & 4 instructors can teach all CANSail levels up to and including CANSail 4.  However, CANSail 5 & 6 instructors can only teach CANSail 5 & 6 unless they are also trained or certified in other levels.  The courses are not linear, so become a CANSail 1 & 2 instructor is not a prerequisite for becoming a CANSail 3 & 4 instructor.  However, the CANSail 3 & 4 technical does require the instructor to be at a higher standard in some areas.

The CANSail Advanced Technical allows instructors who are CANSail 1 & 2 trained or certified to teach up to the CANSail sailing level they hold, up to CANSail 4.  This course is also appropriate for CANSail 3 & 4 trained instructors as it also teaches more advanced instructing techniques and builds on the fundamentals from the previous technical course.

Upon successful completion of the technical clinic, instructors are Trained.  Trained instructors can register with Sail Canada and coach, but must complete an evaluation within 2 years of becoming Trained.  Once an instructor is successful in their evaluation, they are certified for 3 years from the date of their technical clinic.
