Living Sky Sailing School has modified our booking system due to Covid. 25% deposit is not due until 7 days prior to your trip. The balance will be due the morning of your experience. We encourage tentative bookings now to secure your spot for if/when our current covid conditions are eased!
If you can't make the booking, we will try to reschedule the event. In the case that rescheduling isn't possible, the deposit will be retained by Living Sky Sailing School.
If Living Sky Sailing School can't provide the event due to mechanical or weather conditions, we will try to reschedule. If that is not possible, the entire deposit and paid fees will be refunded.
Living Sky Sailing School has met the official criteria to be a certified sailing school. The business is a registered Corporation with the Saskatchewan Government. The School, Instructor and the Boats have all met and hold current Canadian Recreational Yachting Association instructor certification and appropriate insurance. The boats Copeau and Adagio are registered with Transport Canada and meet the criteria to be training vessels. All safety equipment is on board.
Go or No Go?
At Living Sky Sailing School, we keep a constant watch on the weather. Our guide is when the wind is predicted to be at 30kph or higher or 25kph with gusts to 40kph, we will not go on the water or quickly return to the dock.
We also watch for probability of Thundershowers. Even though sailboats (including ours) have a system to dissipate lightning, we don't want to experience it! We will either not go out, quickly return to dock or seek shelter.
In the event of bad weather, a THREE HOUR EXPERIENCE will be cancelled and hopefully rescheduled.
A COURSE may still go on. Many components of the practical section can be done on board and in the marina. Docking practise is much easier, if no other boats are moving!
In any experience with Living Sky Sailing School, in the unlikely event that any ONE of the participants on board is uncomfortable, uneasy or wants to return to the dock, their wish will be addressed as a top priority!
