I took Basic cruising in 2009. Raced for a few years as foredeck. (Foredeck always gets a ride). Became Fleet Captain at Britannia. Married my skipper and retired to a 53 ft boat in the Caribbean. Thanks Advantage Boating for the first few tacks on this route of life!

Become a sailing instructor and join our Advantage Boating team!

Consider the Gift of Sailing for that special person in your life and help them create memories to last a lifetime.   Sailing offers outdoor opportunities for adventure, serenity, freedom, accomplishment, meeting new people and is a great way to enjoy the fresh air.  https://advantageboating.com/more-information/store-gift-certificate/
Summer in November?  I cant believe its November 9th and 20 degrees outside 🌞 in Ottawa.  So thankful to have the opportunity to work remotely & outside.  Canada is beautiful ❤️  Is there anyone else out there who has managed to slip away and work remotely so they could enjoy the beautiful warm weather for a few extra days?
