It’s with great sadness that we acknowledge the death of our Patron HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. It was our great honour.
On the occasion of our 70th Anniversary in 2008, his message to us:
“ ‘Messing about in boats’ sounds harmless enough, but experienced yachtsmen know only too well that proper initial training makes for a safer and more enjoyable experience.”
Virtual Classrooms Available - Face to face classes suspended until further notice
We are taking measures to ensure the health and safety of all our volunteers, students and staff of the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons. We are suspending all face to face activities, classes, squadron and district meetings. Online courses are still available. Our employees are available to help you.
We recommend that you practice physical distancing with rigour to help flatten the curve so we can all resume our daily activities.
Wash your hands often. Sneeze into a tissue or the inside of your elbow. If you have any flu-like symptoms, stay home. If they get worse, seek medical help.
