This membership category refers to schools or clubs who offer a learn-to-sail dinghy program. A flat membership fee of $280.00 in 2016 is paid to Ontario Sailing (unless you are a club and have paid the club membership fee then you are not charged an additional fee to be listed under this category as well). Fifty percent of the membership fee is then forwarded onto Sail Canada.
This membership category refers to schools or clubs who offer a learn-to cruise/power program. A flat membership fee of $280.00 in 2016 is paid to Ontario Sailing of which part of the fee is then forwarded to Sail Canada. For organizations that run from multiple locations on a part or fulltime bases pay 50% of the fee for each of subsequent sites ($140.00 in 2016 for the second and multiple sites thereafter) Any member clubs who also offer Learn to Cruise/Power courses must also pay the additional membership fee. Individual Instructors that offer certification and run their own school (this includes those that charter a boat to run courses) must register as a Cruising School.
We remind those that run learn to sail programs that they must register their coach boats as commercial vessels. Those clubs or schools that teach on keelboats and powerboats with an instructor aboard must register with Transport Canada as a Recreational Boating School.
Registration fees for CANSail learn the sail and learn to cruise fees are payable per registered student and the fee is set in a contract between the club/school/camp and Ontario Sailing before their account for the current year is activated.
