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 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 is offering courses in 2021 (online, self-study and blended online courses).
Interested students are requested to contact Agathe Gaulin (seo-gabriolaisland@cps-ecp.org) or Nigel Wells
(Nigelwells@shaw.ca) to discuss possible courses and how to sign up.
