Sailing School

For those who would like to get educated on sailing and cruising we have a yachting school.

Sail La Vie Sailing School operates under the guidance of  Grassroots  Sailing School run by Sail Canada certified evaluator and instructor, highly experienced sailor Rick Butler.  In cooperation we offer all levels of Canadian Yachting Association (CYA) instruction for those who want to learn how to sail or who simply seek live-aboard experiences.

We set high education standards in our school. Our learning system provides an opportunity to get theoretical knowledge attending in class or on-line. Well-structured program is broken down into  easily digestible modules. For each module we moderate quiz questions and situations that could arise in real water.

Each part of the class is followed by the practice on water with Sail Canada Certified Instructors. We also offer mentoring if you need to gain confidence after passing the course. We can organize extra training trips for those who want to work on their experience and practical skills. If you are a planning to sail a catamaran we can recommend our catamaran-specific course.

With us you have a unique opportunity to learn sailing with our English-Russian speaking instructors.  You will be able to get the skills that allow you to navigate and find the best solution in different Seas.

After you have successfully completed the courses, you will receive qualifications of a Coastal Skipper and an Offshore Skipper.
