Student Level Navigation

Sail Canada offers a series of navigation courses that are targeted at various levels of expertise and boating context – day sailing, coastal cruising and offshore. The detailed Sail Canada Navigation standards are available on the Sail Canada website.


Standards are designed to be delivered in a classroom environment and the standards progression may be completed independent of any practical training. The content and learning progression integrate with practical standards with the application of learned skills coached as part of the on-water keelboat and powerboat standards.

Advanced Navigation includes a number of modules: Radar, electronics, piloting and weather.
