New year, New you? Are you female with a passion for sailing and fancy a life changing experience? Then why not do a Vancouver sailing course for women only, here at Nanaimo Sailing School.
There could be many reasons why you might consider taking part in a Women only sailing course, it may be that you feel that your male counterpart is sometimes not always the best person to learn from? Or maybe you tend to play second fiddle to the “master” of the family yacht? Perhaps you’ve been doing a lot of sailing with a male crew who just aren’t giving you a chance to either take more control of the sailboat or practice skills that you want to build confidence in. Or maybe you are well overdue a break away from the husband and family and particularly fancy the chance to meet new people with similar interests doing something that you all love.
Well whatever your reasons, then you can do a five day Vancouver sailing course set in the stunning Gulf islands, accompanied by like-minded women which can build your confidence on the water, practise your sailing techniques and share experiences.
The bonuses of doing a Women only sailing course are many, but a significant point is that you can enjoy proper soul-building time with other like-minded women and you will probably laugh so much and learn so much from each other that you will emerge not only with possible friends for life, but another view of sailing.
Sailing around the Gulf Islands is a beautiful experience in itself, this is possibly one of the most beautiful parts of the world in which to practice points of sail and helming the yacht whilst sailing this stunning area. You will also gain confidence and experience in both docking the yacht, anchoring and not mention practising picking up those illusive mooring buoys!
Another part of the sailing course will of course include safety aspects such as Man Overboard procedures and coping with those accidental gybes!
Basic navigational skills will also be learnt, as you discover how to navigate your course using the charter and plotting and taking bearings.
Testimonies from ladies who have taken the Seawise Women only Cruise state that it was a ‘positive’, ‘exhilarating and rewarding’ experience.
Expect to be able to reconfirm skills that you already have and learn new skills that you may have been anxious or fearful of before, but with the help of our fully qualified female instructors who can patiently and confidently teach you the skills that you want to perfect.
On a Women only sailing course, you can expect to be moved by seeing each person reach a level of competence and confidence in themselves.
