Many members join with no sailing knowledge. Experience can be gained from other members and through Sail Canada certification. We work with a local provider to offer courses leading to Sail Canada certification.
A Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC) or it’s equivalent is required by everyone who operates a boat in Canada and is good for life. Having a PCOC card shows you understand the basic rules and how to safely operate a boat. You can get the card by taking a boating safety course in-person or online, and passing the simple test at the end of the course. You can find a list of PCOC providers here.
