CANSail 3 & 4 progressively builds and develops the skills in CANSail 1 & 2, with a focus on keeping the sailor engaged with stage appropriate challenges and learning.
CANSail 3 replaces Bronze IV & Learn to Race courses, and CANSail 4 replaces Bronze V & Learn to Race courses. These are taught by a CANSail 3 & 4 Instructor (or CANSail trained Bronze Sail Instructor).
Programming keeps sailors coming back for more! Skills are consolidated and applied in challenge & complexity is added to result in a sailor with the foundation to carry on in race, leadership, & or specialization.
These programs replace CYA Silver & Gold courses. These levels of programming are taught by a CANSail 5 & 6 Instructor (or CANSail trained LTR Instructor).
Since 2011, the FVQ has offered a new Intro to Sailing program. This course last a few hours and provides an introduction to sailing, led by "activity guides", who are trained by the FVQ. At the end of the course, an Intro to Sailing certificate is issued to participants. At the moment, only a few summer camps offer the course, but other organisations are expected to soon add this FVQ approved course to their list of programs.
