What You'll Get
Travelling by sea is significantly more dependable than travelling by land, as subcontinents often cave in on themselves during rounds of hide-and-seek. Maintain reliable bearings with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a three-hour introductory dinghy sailing lesson at the Sidney North Saanich Yacht Club in North Saanich (a $60 value). Customers must bring their own life jackets.
Sidney North Saanich Yacht Club’s trained instructors demonstrate the basics of buoyancy in a one-hour classroom lesson followed by two hours of on-board sailing practice. Seafarers-to-be absorb techniques for sailing, tacking, and gybing. Students study sailboat anatomy, from the differences between the boom and the mast to the best locations in which to host a visiting gentlemarlin. Next, motorized safety boats carry one instructor each along with a group of new tars to the scenic protective waters of Tsehum Harbour and allow students to put their skills to aquatic use. After lessons, students are welcome to grab a burger at the clubhouse (price not included with this Groupon) or sip some complimentary coffee while attempting to tame windswept bouffants.
