The Mobile Sailing School (MSS) Program is a traveling program and was designed to provide sailing lessons in areas where sailing has not been introduced, or where equipment is not accessible. The MSS travels all throughout Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario and gives young people ages 7 and up, as well as youths and adults, an introduction to the exciting sport of sailing. It was designed to meet the needs of both beginners and those with some sailing experience to further refine their skills. All instruction is based on the CANSail standards from Sail Canada.
Young students enrolled in the Mobile Sailing School Program will be taught the Wet Feet certification program in the Pram boat, and the older students will be taught the CANSail 1+2 certification program in the RS Zest; as a basis for evaluation at the end of the week.
The Wet Feet and CANSail programs are multi-level programs and various sailing skills are required for completion of each level. At the end of the week, students will receive a progress report and a certificate acknowledging their accomplishments of the level they have completed.
