2023 Registration Process

Similar to past years, registration will be staggered to accommodate returning students/household members followed 2 weeks later by registration for new students.

  1. Registration for returning students & members of their household is May 1st.
  2. All other (new) students will be on May 15th.

We will again offer CANSail beginner course Levels 1 & 2 using Pirate-class training sailboats along with a Fun Sailing option which is not instructor-led. The popular Fun Sailing sessions are offered as finding CANSail Level 3 & 4 instructors continues to be problematic.

The 2022 Course Dates are: 

  • Levels 1&2 – July 10-14; July 24-28; July 31-Aug 4; Aug 14-18
  • Fun Sailing – July 31-Aug 4; August 14-18. 

All students in Levels 1 & 2 must be at least 9 years old at the start of the course. Fun Sailing students must be 12 years old and have substantially completed level 2.

Parents/Guardians will directly register students’ Registration using the Checklick registration tool. Information from the 2022 season has been incorporated into the Checklick system and should be available to the person completing the registration. If not, please input the relevant information. All students will be directly placed into their courses and you will have confirmation of their placement.

If you should land on a “Waitlist”, our Registrar will liase to seek a proper alternative week. Your credit card will only be charged once students are formally moved from the Waitlist category into a specific week.

The 2023 course fee for all courses is C$225The only option for payment is by using a credit card.

We recommend that individuals access the Checklick system shortly after 8 AM on May 1st/15th as registration preferences are based on sequential receipt. The Checklick system will only be opened to registrants at 8:00 Pacific Time on May 1st.
