COVID-19 AND OUR SUMMER 2020 JUNIOR SAILING PROGRAM

On Friday, the provinces announced gatherings can now increase to 50 people with physical distancing and consistent groups of 10 are allowed without physical distancing.


Sailors and coaches have maintain social distancing within other groups.


As our 2020 season begins we are thrilled to be able to offer the majority of our programs while meeting the Sail Nova Scotia return to training regulations and Health Nova Scotia. We are so thankful for the support and patience we have received as we navigated through this situation. To go ahead safely we have had to make the following  adjustments to our program.

Sailors will be arriving at the different times everyday, and will have a designated spot for their gear and boats. Rules regarding bathrooms, changing, handwashing and gear maintenance will be discussed with sailors at the beginning of each session. 


Please keep in mind there is limited space and all of our programs ARE already quite FULL. Please send me an email to headinstructor@bbyc.ca before you register your sailor..


  • Keelboat Learn To Sail: Due to the inability to properly maintain social distancing, both children and adult learn to sail will not be offered at this time.

  • 420 Learn To Sail / Intro and Intermediate:

    We are allowed to go ahead with our intro and intermediate 420 programs without social distancing. However, all the programs ARE quite FULL. Please send me an email headinstructor@bbyc.ca before you register your sailor. There is limited space.

  • Opti Learn To Sail/ Intro and Intermediate: Our opti programs will go ahead with reduced numbers. Please send me an email if you are looking to register your sailor.

  •  Race Team: Our single handed and double-handed race teams will go ahead, with a reduced regatta schedule. Sailors and coaches have maintain social distancing within other groups.

  • Wetfeet: Our wetfeet program will go ahead with a reduced number.


It is our hope that as the summer continues we will be able to expand our programs and offer sailing to more people. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and the guidelines in place and do our best to get our sailors back out. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns regarding our summer sailing programs.


Thank you for your patience and understand during this. Please contact me at 902-412-2590 if you have not recieved an email from me or a refund for the month of July.


Stay safe, healthy and positive,
