Offshore Sail Numbers

Sail numbers are required for boat identification while racing and are useful for safety purposes. Sailboat owners must apply to Sail Canada for a sail number unless the boat is affiliated with a Sail Canada member class association that issues its own sail numbers.

Offshore sail numbers may be obtained by applying to tSail Canada. BC and Alberta residents may contact BC Sailing to purchase their number.
