We are your Canadian Leapard dealer.

Evolving from 40 years of customer feedback, we pooled our expertise with builders Robertson and Caine to design the Leopard line of blue water cruising catamarans. As the Canadian dealer for Leopard Catamarans, we're proud to say that over 1200 Leopard cats have now sailed more than 11 million miles and the world’s largest oceans.

Based in the scenic cruising grounds of the Gulf Islands, this 5 day, comprehensive course covers boat handling and safe seamanship practices as well as introducing the basics of coastal navigation. After departing our base at Port Sidney you'll spend five days on board a 34 - 40 ft sailboat, cruising and learning through some of the most spectacular waters in the world.
