LEARN BY DOING

We understand that each person has his/her own strategy for learning. On Voyageur, various tasks will be explained and demonstrated. We encourage dialogue and repetitive self practice without our continual prompting. Repetitive personal practice will result in both successful and unsuccessful attempts. Some of our best learning takes place after we have made a mistake. Our courses run for two weeks, with a 2:1 student/teacher ratio providing you with the opportunity to build sailing skills and retain them after your course is completed. Although sailing aboard Voyageur may challenge the boundaries of your comfort zone, the end result is a feeling of being empowered to pursue your future sailing adventures.

Watch a snippet of the fun times we had cruising the east coast of Newfoundland from St. John's to Bonavista in 2012. 

Not always shrouded in fog, we enjoyed sunny days, secluded anchorages and fish boat harbours, where everyone is happy to see you and always ready to lend a hand.

Cannot wait to return!
