CANsail 5&6

Recommended Age: 14+

Prerequisites: Completion of CANSail 1-4 & the expressed permission from Sail NB and RYC


Sailors are registered for 6 weeks of instruction throughout the duration of the summer program.


Availability for Levels 5 & 6: Dependent on availability of instructors through Sail NB & space in the RYC Learn to Sail program, participants may be asked to volunteer for the duration of the season providing sailors extra training time to improve skills and increase chances of achieving CANSail 5 or 6 levels.


Levels 5 & 6 allow our sailors to experience the level of training required to be part of a race team, while continuing to develop their sailing skills learned in previous levels. Sailors are welcome to bring their own boat. Please note: Participation at regattas within the province is an integral part of the program and requires a commitment from both the parents and the sailors. Regattas require travel, and parents may be needed for some travel planning and assistance at regattas. This program is offered in 2 week sessions, however up to 6 to 8 weeks are recommended for this level of sailor.


Maximum participants per session is 35. Supply in each CANSail level is dependant on the number of people registered and is subject to change.
