MacSailing offers hands-on experience under the guidance of skilled and patient instructors on English Bay.
The Basic Cruising Course was designed by Sail Canada and is internationally recognized. Topics include anchoring, basic navigation and emergency procedures. Recommended for those with prior sailing experience.
Our courses are ran using smaller keelboats designed to be easier to handle and more forgiving throughout the learning process. Lessons take place aboard our 24 foot boats called ‘Martin 242s’. The locally built vessel sails beautifully and is equipped with everything needed for weekend getaway
