On Friday June 19th, the Province annouced that gatherings increased to 50 while maintaning physical distancing and groups up to 10 are allowed to without any physical distancing. What does this mean for BBYC and the Adult Learn to Sail program? 


We are able to go ahead with both our keelboat and dinghy programs.

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.
