ADULT SAILING


This summer we are offering longer sessions, which will allow sailors to work on the Cansail Levels. We are also offering a Cansail 3/4 for sailors who have completed their Cansail 1/2. 


Cansail lessons will be offered on our dinghy fleet - 420s. Sail Canadas Start Keelboat Sailing program will be offered on our fleet of J24s. 


Each session will end with an "End of Session" Celebration, where you will receive your certificates and checklists, and be able to purchase drinks from the Bar.

CANSAIL 1/2


Get Sail Canada certified! We offer a Cansail program for adults! Here you will learn the basics of sailing, gain confidence on boats and get your levels. This program is a month long, and meets every Tuesday and Thursday OR Monday and Friday from 6-9pm. The class sizes are small, so it is very hands on learning. This program is taught on our 420s. We do need a minimum number of participants to run this course, so you will be refunded if we do not have enough participants.

CANSAIL 3/4


Get Sail Canada certified! We offer a Cansail program for adults! You MUST have your Cansail 2 to participate in this program. This program is two months long, and meets every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-9pm. The class sizes are small, so it is very hands on learning. This program is taught on our 420s. To meet the requirements of your Cansial 3, you must participate in at least one club race, or training camp at a local club. We are able to facilitate this: each regatta has separate fees that are not included in the cost of this course, depending on the regatta, there may be a small regatta fee that we require to help with costs. Please also note that the regattas will not be during the regular course hours, and are typically during weekends. We do need a minimum number of participants to run this course, so you will be refunded if we do not have enough participants.


Cansail 3 Session Dates


Session 1  May 30 - July 20  $375 + tax
Session 2   August 1 - 24, September 5 - 28  $375 + tax

ADULT PRIVATE LESSONS


Have a tough schedule or very particular goals?


BBYC can create a specific lesson plan for you based on your unique sailing goals.  We can also assist you by teaching you on your own boat rather than a club boat.  Our instructors are available to teach any skills you might need, either in the classroom or on-the-water. Private lessons are ideal for those individuals or families that want special attention or have limited time availability.  Contact the Head Instructor here for additional information on private lessons.
