Good luck to all the instructor candidates! It's a wonderful way to share your love of sailing with others.

See you Monday!

An exciting Victoria Day weekend at Advantage Boating!  Despite not being allowed to sail on the river due to the Ottawa river boating ban, we still managed to launch the first of our 2019 Basic Cruising courses. 11 enthusiastic new sailors were able to get some hands-on learning on sailboat safety, rigging, docking, outboard engine handling, boating handling in the harbour, navigation and more!   We are eagerly awaiting the ban to be lifted so that this weekend we can get out sailing.  #livelovesail #learntosail #Ottawa
