Welcome to the Gabriola Island Power and Sail Squadron
We are a unit of the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons (CPS – ECP), volunteers teaching safe boating. We want to share with the boating public and those interested in boating, even if they do not have a boat, the knowledge and experiences that will make leisure water activities the best they can be.
During the 2020/2021 Pandemic our Squadron is running self-study courses for the Radio Operator
Certificate (ROC M) and the Pleasure Craft Operator Certificate (PCOC – Boating 1). Please refer to the Course Information page for registration.
Our Squadron is also running the blended course online Boating 2 and 3 Combined (Beyond Boating
Basics + Introduction to Marine Navigation) and the blended course online Boating 4 – Near Shore
Marine Navigation- Level 1 (previously called Seamanship). Registration for the above courses
is now closed.
Our Squadron may be offering courses in 2021 (online, self-study and blended online courses).
Interested students are requested to contact Agathe Gaulin (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Nigel Wells
(Nigelwells@shaw.ca) to discuss possibilities of a course and signing up for it.
