    HI, I’ve lost my email track, but our granddaughter, Zlata Steeves, is registered in the CanSail 1 course that starts tomorrow (Monday) but we’ve received no information about the week. Where shall we bring her tomorrow? What time? Does she need her own life jacket? etc. Thanks. Kate Braid, (629-6848)

      Hi Kat. I will give a quick response and one of the directors will get back with more detailed material. The location for your session is very close to Browning Marina. Go to Hamilton Road (which takes you to the Marina). Keep on the road (it turns into Oak Road close to the beach) and you will find everyone gathered at the tiny clubhouse on the left side.
      Zlata should bring lunch and supply of water, hat, sunscreen, bathing suit (we test swimming on the 1st day) and change of clothes “as a just in case”.

      I will pass this over to a director who has more info, but this gets you the essentials.
