Is there a minimum age for training?

Yes, there is. The minimum age is 18. This doesn’t mean you can’t get started with learning how to handle boats though.  Yacht clubs have great dinghy programs available which will prepare you well for sailing on bugger boats.

Can anyone do this?

The only limits you have is your mind and willingness to do hard work.

Does the Government of Ontario having any funding formula for this type of training?

This is something we are looking into currently and hope to have an answer to this soon.
