Answer 14

Which is the best format; Day Sailing or Live Aboard?

There is no simple answer to this question. Here are some comments to help you decide.

Both formats cover the same material but the live aboard format exposes you to the cruising lifestyle because you are living on the boat all the time during your course. In the day sailing format you go home at the end of each lesson.

The live aboard format is only offered as 5 consecutive days or two complete weekends whereas the day sailing format offers much more scope for schedule flexibility.

Day Sailing courses are taught on our Tanzer 22 boats in Montreal; Live Aboard courses are taught on our Mirage 29 boats in the beautiful 1000 Islands area of Ontario.
