Our staff

What a team!

AQVA hires  sailing instructors, one coordinator  and one manager every summer. All the staff are full-time students studying a variety of disciplines including education, nursing, business and occupational therapy. Their common link is their passion for the sport of sailing and their desire to share sailing with everyone.

All of our sailing instructors are certified by Sail Canada.  Their certification includes not only courses on how to teach sailing but also boat rescue and first-aid training.  In addition they have also taken the Sail Canada "Coaching Sailors with a Disability" course.
