Camp introduction

Northern Cross Outdoor Sailing Camp is held at Lake Ontario Bluffer's Park. The camp is taught by Peter Li, the only Chinese sailing instructor in Ontario, and his assistant, who holds a Sail Canada Water Safety Certificate and a First Aid Certificate. The Basic Cruising Skipper / Crew Standard of Sail Canada is awarded to all students who pass the exam after the course. The Basic Cruising Standard is one of the most comprehensive and highly valued courses. This certificate can be used for college application assistance or credit for admission in specific provinces/states in Canada and the United States.


​training content

This is a four-day junior sailing certification camp divided into three parts: theoretical study, theoretical assessment, practical operation and assessment. Students who successfully pass all the examinations will receive a junior sailing captain certificate issued by Sail Canada, and campers who fail all the reviews but pass some core competency assessments will receive a junior sailing sailor certificate.

In the theoretical part, we will provide students with the textbook Basic Cruising Skills (primary sailing skills), written by Gillian West and customized by Sail Canada. This book is full of pictures and texts, comprehensively and deeply describes the vocabulary of sailing and related equipment and sailing theory in detail, and also introduces the safety equipment required or recommended by Transport Canada and Sail Canada. Outboard engines, essential marine traffic radio specification operation, primary navigation, and climatic considerations are also discussed. Based on the knowledge introduced in the theoretical part, the course arranges more than 20 hours of practical practice and assessment. Students will practice completing sailing tasks such as leaving and entering the port on a 6-9 meter long ship, sailing with an external engine, using proper nouns for sailing parts and controls, raising and lowering sails, rescuing crew members falling into the water, anchoring and lifting.
