Why Take Our Boating Courses and Workshops?


Delivering boating courses in Canada for over 80 years, Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons is a non-profit organization and the foremost educational boating authority in Canada

Gabriola Island Power and Sail Squadron is a unit of theCanadian Power and Sail Squadrons (CPS - ECP), volunteers teaching safe boating. We want to share with the boating public and those interested in boating, (even if they do not have a boat), the knowledge and experiences that will make leisure water activities the best they can be.
