      Hello France. Thank you for your enquiry. Yes, we are aware that this will be a Sunday this year. The Board recently amended our 2016 registration process to only accept emails (instead of several alternatives in prior years). This ensures equal treatment for everyone and avoided some calls languishing in voice mail etc. We also have a new registrar (Allyson Coffey) with the following email address:

      Thanks for your interest and we hope to see you this summer.

      Thank you for your email Patricia. We do have a couple of empty spots in the July 11-15, 2016 course. This is a CanSail 1 & 2 course. CanSail 1 is for beginners, while the CanSail 2 course is for those students who have previously taken & passed their CanSail 1 course. All of the students share the four (4) Flying Junior boats and have an awful lot of fun together.

      If this course date works for you, please respond with the name of the student and that you would like to register them. I will then add the student to the course list and send you Registration Confirmation.

      Thanks so much,

      Allyson Coffey
