ANDREWS program may be extended this will not apply.
SAIL ST. ANDREWS requires its instructors to have a standard first aid course. They do not have training with special needs childhood education. They are not medically trained personnel and therefore they cannot be responsible for the dispensing of any medication or treatments other than first aid.

Sailor’s Code of Conduct
The Sailor’s Code of Conduct has been developed to let you, the sailors, know how the instructors expect you to act during your time in the SAIL ST. ANDREWS program. Appropriate behaviour will allow you to become well-rounded, self-confident sailors. We here at SAIL ST. ANDREWS expect the highest level of sportsmanship, teamwork, fair play, and good behaviour. As a member of this team you represent SAIL ST. ANDREWS, your class, and your family. Your behaviour, either on or off the water, should be to maintain this level of sportsmanship and conduct, and make other sailors proud to be a part of this organization. The use of alcohol, drugs, or tobacco of any kind, by any participant, at any time, is strictly prohibited.
In order to achieve this we ask you to follow these guidelines:
• Sail for the fun and love of the sport. Enjoy yourself.
• Work hard to improve your skills.
• Listen, ask questions, and watch others to see how you can better your skills
• Learn teamwork, sportsmanship, discipline, confidence and self-control.
• Be a team player – get along with your teammates.
• Appreciate the contribution that each person makes to the team.
• Learn the rules and play by them.
• Always be a good sport and set a positive example for other, especially younger sailors.

Expectations of Parents and Guardians
Since SAIL ST. ANDREWS sets high expectations for their participants, we feel it only fair that we apply the same standards to parents and guardians. We also need your help for our program to succeed. By setting a good example for our sailors, you exemplify our expectations of sportsmanship and fair play.
We ask parents and guardians to:
• Encourage your child to play by the rules. Remember, children learn best by example.
• Make their participation fun. Support their desire to sail or play the sport of their choosing.
• Show a positive attitude toward the SAIL ST. ANDREWS youth sailing program and all of its participants.
• Emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit your young athlete.
• Applaud a good effort in victory and in defeat and enforce the positive points of the game.
• Work toward removing all physical and verbal abuse in youth sports. Adopt a “Zero Tolerance” attitude.
• Familiarize yourself with the materials required for your child’s participation in the SAIL ST. ANDREWS youth sailing program.
Additionally, we always welcome feedback from you. We ask that if you have any complaints that you follow this chain of command:
• Address your concerns with your child’s instructor/coach. If you are not satisfied that the issue has been addressed then,
• Take your concerns to the board of directors – listed on the website. If you are still not satisfied that the issue has been addressed then,
Following these guidelines promotes respect and trust within the program and its staff.
The SAIL ST. ANDREWS program follows a strict user pay Equipment Usage Policy. This Policy is to be used with regard to damage to boats and lost or damaged equipment or other property of SAIL ST. ANDREWS or on loan to SAIL ST. ANDREWS.
1. Boat Damage with other boats (moored, docked or sailing), docks shoreline or other obstructions will result in a hearing to determine the facts. If the sailor(s) are found to have intentionally caused the damage or were negligent then they will pay for all repairs. The SAIL ST. ANDREWS staff will notify all involved sailors and parents of the incident and of any decisions requiring payment.
2. Lost or damaged equipment (including property of SAIL ST. ANDREWS) will usually be assigned to the sailors using the equipment or to their class. In these situations the sailor(s) or class responsible for the equipment will share the replacement or repair expense. Equipment that has failed due to normal usage will be repaired or replaced by SAIL ST. ANDREWS.
3. Boat Inspection will be conducted by the Instructors on a regular basis and when equipment is signed in/out. If a sailor is aware of any items on the boats or equipment that is not in proper working condition, the sailors should notify their instructor immediately. This is so repairs can be made right away and that the sailors are not held responsible for something that they did not do.
These are one week classes – approximately 40 hrs spread over 5-6 days weather co-operating. Daily times are usually 9 am – 4 pm. Instructor will provide details.
Sail St. Andrews recommends the following to bring each day:
• Lunch including some fruit and extra drinks. Lunch will be eaten at Navy Island or on the scow.
• Water, one litre container ( A good idea is to fill it up a quarter full and freeze it, then fill it in the morning and it stays cool most of the day).
• Sunscreen, usually SPF 30 for your body and SPF 30 or 45 for your face.
• Sunglasses with 100% UVA & UVB protection.
• A hat or visor with a clip or twine so it can be tied to your PFD and (hopefully) you won’t lose it.
• Fast drying, soft soled shoes (not dark soles) and a second pair of shoes that you won’t get wet.
• A large beach towel and bathing suit.
• At least one complete change of warm clothes including sweatshirts, track pants, windbreaker jacket and raingear.
• A small notepad and pencil.
• Finally, a bag (backpack or gym bag) that you can fit everything into. If your bag doesn’t have a separate spot for wet stuff, the pack a couple of grocery bags so you can keep your dry stuff dry!
