Re: newbie, update.

Just an update: I found this, Sail Canada Coastal Navigation Standard offered from Advantage Boating for about $260.00 Can. Has anyone heard of them or perhaps even taken one of their courses? Thanks, chile1

Re: newbie

I have taken that course - as the name says it is the Sail Canada Coastal Navigation course, taught online. Good course, but probably not what you're looking for. For clarity, sailing and navigation are taught as two separate skills.

The other basic certification courses, as far as I am aware, all have an on-board component, otherwise they can't teach you to sail.

Unless you're talking about the PCOC - Pleasure Craft Operators' Card - required to operate any powered craft in Canada. Lots of online options for that one.
