This leads to full Sail Canada Basic Certification not just an introductory course to sailing. Even if you have never been on a boat before we will teach you how to handle a cruising boat safely under power and sail in moderate conditions.
This builds on your basic skills. Designed for those who want to charter or purchase a keelboat it includes more navigation and boat management aspects as well as improved sailing skills and boat handling/docking and the ICC practical. 6 Day Live Aboard. Optionally or in conjunction with Sail Canada Intermediate Cruising we can offer IYT International Bareboat Skipper (contact us)or ICC (see below)
ICC certification is required to operate a boat in most European Countries. The ICC consists of a practical test in a short passage and a theory test. It is strongly recommended that you have already completed Sail Canada Intermediate cruising and Coastal Navigation or have comparable experience. The course can be taken as a weekend standalone course or as an add on to a 6 day Intermediate live aboard course.
