Sailing Lessons & Instruction

I provide all levels of sailing lessons to suit your experience, from the complete novice to the offshore sailor. Become a self-confident sailor, ready to command a charter yacht or a boat of your own. Learn in the waters that you will want to charter in at a later date. Hands-on is the only way! Sailing lessons are conducted as a 5 to 7-day live-aboard format.

“Fantastic! Great instruction, humour and food. Should have done it years ago.”

Each day consists of theory lessons and practical sailing skills. Enjoy your evenings from secure anchorages and unique marinas throughout the Gulf islands, Sunshine Coast or Desolation Sound, allowing you to experience all possible aspects of cruising.

Bring along your personal gear and I’ll provide the rest: on-board food, accommodation, your official Sail Canada textbook and other materials included with courses.

Board Monday morning and meet Capt. Mac and fellow students. With only 4 students aboard, Capt. Mac has time for your personal attention. Following a safety equipment check and vessel familiarization, you’re off on an exciting new learning experience.

“Friendship was great, food was great and I will always remember this trip.”
