CANSail refers to Canada’s updated sailor training standards. CANSail Dinghy is CYA’s dinghy program for clubs to deliver across Canada. CANSail is a leading sail training initiative to foster performance in sailing and life long participation in the sport.

CANSail Dinghy programming offers learn-to-sail programming according to the most up to date national standards. CANSail programming trains sailors through a progressive pathway of dinghy sailboat handling skills' learning and development. It sets the foundation for athlete and sailor-leadership development regardless of the type of dinghy being used (single or double handed), all in a fun, safe and active learning environment. A sailor in the CANSail programming develops through six fundamental levels of standard.


The CANSail Progress Report is a snapshot summary of the collection of skills in CANSail levels one through six. Sailors in CANSail programming will receive the 2013 CANSail Progress Report showing their Provincial Sailing Association logo.
