CANSAIL - Dinghies


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 twice a week for 3 hours. 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.

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.
