Age 7-9 yrs - Wet Feet - 1/2 Days
An introduction to sailing for the young child. In stable, sturdy Optimist dinghies (designed specifically for beginners), sailors learn parts of the boat, basic steering and sail control skills in a small-group environment. This program emphasizes safety, fun, and learning, and provides ideal preparation for CANSail 1 & 2. Classes run 1 week, half days - 9am – 1pm. A 4 student minimum is needed to run each session. Parents / guardians that will be driving their child to the School should plan to drop off between 8:45 and 9:00 AM and pickup at 1:00 PM. We have submitted a request to UTRCA asking that presentation of your course receipt at the Park gate will grant you free entrance into the Fanshawe Conservation Area for School purposes only. Directions are available online: www.LondonSailing.ca
NO CLASS ON WED. JULY 1 - CANADA DAY.

Age 9 (by Dec 2020) -16 yrs - CANSail 1 - 2 - YOUTH

Introduces BEGINNERS to sailing, teaching water safety, seamanship, rigging and basic boat handling under a coach’s direction to a point where the student has sufficient knowledge and skills to sail safely and competently without supervision in winds of 8-15 km/hr. FYCSS regrets that for the safety of each student and all other sailors, enrollment in a course does not guarantee certification at any level. The required skills on the CANSail level checklists must be met by each student in order to achieve certification. Parents / guardians that will be driving their child to the School should plan to drop off between 8:45 and 9:00 AM and pickup around 4:00 PM.

To attain levels 3 or 4, one month of classes is suggested. The required skills on the CANSail level checklists must be met by each student in order to achieve certification. Parents / guardians that will be driving their child to the School should plan to drop off between 8:45 and 9:00 AM and pickup around 4:00 PM.

CANSail 5 - 6 - RACE TEAM
The Race Team is the most advanced level of instruction offered at FYCSS and provides students with the chance to work towards their CANSail 5 and 6 levels, the highest levels in the certified Sail Canada CANSail program. If interested in joining, please email ss.director@fyc.on.ca Participants on the team will work towards their athletic and certification goals under the guidance of a certified Sail Canada Race Coach while training and travelling to regattas throughout Ontario during July and August. This team is an exciting, intense and rewarding experience for both the participants and their parents. In order to ensure this experience is the best possible for everyone involved, this team requires that both the participants and parents of the team remain committed and involved for the duration of the season. The family of each participant on the Race Team is required to voluntarily contribute to the organization, chaperoning and / or transportation of the team in an amount proportional to the number of participants on the team. Parent / Guardian Agreement I have read and agree to be bound by all expectations, policies and requirements of a parent as described in the 2019 Race Team Package document (7 pages).

Bus stops are not supervised, drop-off and pick-up times should be planned in accordance with the scheduled stop times. Every effort will be made to keep to the schedule, however, there are many factors which can affect the departure and arrival times. Your co-operation will be appreciated. The bus driver will be given a roster with the name of each child expected on the bus and their stop number. Children registered after rosters are compiled will have their names added by the bus driver when boarding the bus on the first day and it will be certified by the school staff on arrival. Children 12 and older will be permitted to walk home without an adult ONLY with your written permission. Children younger than 12 will be kept at the bus stop until a parent / guardian arrives. Another person, including an older sibling over 14 years, can be designated on the registration form or via a written note submitted to the School. The FYCSS is concerned for the safety and security of your child and will strictly adhere to your transportation arrangements as noted on the registration form, unless otherwise notified via a written note from a parent or guardian at least one day in advance. For the safety of your child, anyone arriving to pick up your child without the appropriate prior notice will NOT be permitted to collect your child.
