PLEASE NOTE: Sail Canada sailing courses are offered by Barefoot Offshore Sailing School in the Grenadines from October to March and then in Canada by Sail Canada and Wavelength Sailing School from April to September.

Sail Canada Courses in The Caribbean

In response to requests from the many Canadians that participate in BOSS courses, BOSS has entered into an agreement with Wavelength Sailing School of Kingston Ontario to offer Learn-to-Cruise courses leading to awarding of Sail Canada certifications. This ensures that Canadians taking courses with BOSS in SVG can have their credentials added to their Sail Canada logbook.

Several highly qualified Sail Canada instructors have been recruited to participate in this unique initiative.  In addition, Wavelength will be offering courses in the Great Lakes during the Canadian summer.

SVG has strong connections to Canada and now its even easier and more economical to travel direct to SVG, from December to April Air Canada is offering weekly direct flights to Argyle International Airport in St. Vincent, only a short ride from the Barefoot base.

Once you have booked your Sail Canada course through BOSS, you may prepare for your course through Wavelength’s LearnToCruiseOnline.ca, which offers Basic Coastal Navigation (a prerequisite for Intermediate Cruising) as well as Ashore Modules for Basic, Intermediate and Advanced.

For our Canadian clients we run Basic and Intermediate courses throughout the year from a Friday morning through the following Thursday morning to take advantage of the direct Air Canada Rouge flights from Toronto on Thursdays.
