Sailboat


Land's End sailing school located in Vancouver, British Columbia takes great pride in the reputation they have developed of delivering exceptionally high quality, internationally recognized sailing instruction. Courses are offered in day sailing and cruise and learn formats. The cruise and learn is a 5 day cruising and learning holiday which takes place in the beautiful Gulf Islands. The daysailing format is held on English Bay in Vancouver. Topics include: handling the boat as both skipper and crew under power & sail, anchoring, emergency procedures, navigation, crew overboard drills and general seamanship. The courses form part of a progression from beginner to advanced levels. We have something for everyone.

Destinations


A typical day starts at 8:00 am with a theory class taught on the teaching boat, teaching aids include various models, a white board and TV/VCR. After the theory class the boat is prepared for sailing, sail covers come off, the engine is checked, ger is properly stowed etc. After a bit of a coffee break the rest of the day is spent on the water learning, reviewing and developing new found sailing skills and having a lot of fun along the way. The day ends around 4:00 pm with snugging down at the dock, mooring lines secure, sail covers back on, swabbing of decks etc. All very good stuff!!

Typical Day


A minimum group size of 3 is required to run a course and groups are limited to 4 students to maintain a high instructor/student ratio. Everyone is welcome keeping in mind that sailing can have its strenuous mmoments. Very small children and seniors with mobility limitations may not find this type of activity appropriate.
