The Canadian Yachting Association (www.sailing.ca) has endorsed Halifax based Yachtmaster instructor Eric Hill to provide training that leads to CYA-ISAF certificates of competence in personal offshore safety and sea survival for crews involved in distance racing. This new and exciting course will elevate the skills of Canadian distance sailors and the performance of their yachts to levels of international seaworthiness recognized around the world. The course also provides value to cruisers or any sailor contemplating navigating open water with any degree of self-sufficiency.

To assist reaching sailors across the country the new CYA-ISAF certificate of competence training has been developed over the past year into a mobile self-contained format available anywhere a suitable facility can be provided. The first CYA-ISAF certificate of competence training will be held in Halifax April 21-22, 2012 at the Shearwater Yacht Club.
