CANSail Checklists

Good news for Learn to Sail programs!  The Sail Canada CANSail checklists have been adapted to accommodate the needs of sailors with disabilities.  They will be integrated into the Sail Canada Checklick program that sailing schools use to register their students and follow their progress online.

Our Objectives

  • Facilitate and develop communication and collaboration among organizations and individuals committed to the development of sailing programs for people with disabilities
  • Assist in the development and delivery of active, strong and sustainable disabled sailing programs
  • Facilitate the delivery of programs, services and resources for disabled sailing programs
  • Facilitate increased public awareness of and advocacy for disabled sailing programs

Get Involved

Freedom, independence, empowerment and fun are all terms we commonly hear from our members. Sailing is a sport for some and recreation for others but all agree that there's nothing like the feeling of being out on the water with our wheelchairs or walking aids back at the dock and knowing that we are safe and in control. My thanks to the dedicated staff and volunteers that make all of this possible.

Rick Watters, Sailor

Of all the volunteer jobs I have (and I have several), the one at QQDSP in Toronto is one of the more gratifying. It is great to go out with people for whom this time on the water is the highlight of their week. You really feel you are contributing something to their well being. And yes I love sailing. It is one of these win-win situations life doesn't offer enough of.

Marcel Deurvorst, Volunteer

I had no idea that sailing was still a possibility for me after my accident and 10 years later there is no turning back. I have made new friends and will keep on sailing for a long time. I think we should copyright the phrase "I leave my wheelchair at the dock and feel the freedom of being on the water" or anything similar, it has become a motto for all of us in the disabled sailing community.
